Here's further information from graniph:


Following a collaboration with master typographer Emil Ruder, the Japanese Design Tshirts Store graniph once again draws on the work of a giant of Swiss graphic design - Josef Muller-Brockmann - to produce a series of six distinctive T-shirts.

Design Tshirts Store graniph

Founded in 2001, graniph pioneered a new culture of fusing art and fashion on the timeless medium of the T-shirt. From its first store in Tokyo's trendy Shimokitazawa neighbourhood, graniph has blossomed to over 80 specialist T-shirt stores spread throughout Asia, a large-scale flagship store and gallery in the heart of Harajuku, as well as an online store bursting with artist information and new designs.

Limited editions for constant change

graniph prides itself on producing unique limited edition T-shirts which appeal to our customers individuality. During the cooler seasons graniph produces roughly 70 new designs a month. And when the temperature rises, so does graniph's output. In the summer months graniph releases up to 130 new designs each month, so our customers are always sure to find fresh designs each time they check out graniph.

Interaction as a creative principle

Of course, many people wonder how graniph maintains such a constant flow of high quality output. The answer lies in graniph's collaborative design process. In addition to our in-house designers we collaborate with both up-and-coming and established artists from around the globe. Innovative collaborations with a range of musicians, films and magazines adds further depth to the graniph collection.
