Press Release: Winning TDKR T-Shirt Designs Chosen By Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan’s top three Dark Knight shirts have been selected and are ready for sale at The decisions were tough but the final cuts have been made as the Grand Prize winner is announced Friday May 4th.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2012

Top Five Winning Dark Knight Shirts chosen by Christopher Nolan.

The Rising Shadow by Studio8Worx: The Rising Shadow has really caused some commotion with the use of paint splatters and the unique blend of Bane to Batman. Overall the images of Bane and Batman flow well with the movement of the designs of the shirt.

Bane T-shirt by Mr. Nicolo: This design was stand out with his interpretation of Bane with the bright blue colors with the piercing orange eyes. Mr. Nicolo has been a Batman fan since he was a kid, with his favorite character being Bane, inspired him to create Bane as dominate, fury filled monster.

Arise by SilentOP: SilentOP captures Batmans face constructed in the cityscape with the Batman signal outlining the sky above the city. The use of aquatic blue creates the energy in the bat signal that dilutes through Gotham and the city.

Come From the Darkness by Geno75: This t-shirt design uses Batman’s expression, body language and the way his cape flows really shows that Batman is about to burst into action. The Dark Knight strikes the ground and clenches his fists ready to fight.

Hello Mr. Wayne by SkyPeee: The 1st place winner shows a good sense of motion between Batman fighting off Bane. The intense fight between Bane and Batman is composed under cascaded shadows and ominous textures.
There is an interview, process sketches and an in depth look at the design of each shirt. A sneek peek at the minds and details of each t-shirt design.

As the final week The Dark Knight Rises t-shirt contest came to a close, artists waited in suspense to see if their design was selected by the producer Christopher Nolan himself for the Grand Prize. In the trailer for the upcoming film Bane says, “Gotham, take control... take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!” DesignByHumans didn’t necessarily want artist to try to take over your city but more identifying about the best t-shirt designers in the world.

DesignByHumans, Warner Bros., and Christoper Nolan Director/Writer/Producer have worked in collaboration to give artist the opportunity of the lifetime and be able to liberate themselves through design and artwork. For the lucky winners that were chosen, and especially the Grand prize winner, they will be recognized as an award winning t-shirt designer. There were over 3000 submissions and all the unique and creative designs that were submitted from Bane to Catwomen all the way to the Dark Knight made this contest very competitive. Just as in the trailer when the crowd is chanting, “Deshi! Deshi! Basara! Basara!,” which means “Rise,” and that’s what these artist have done; They rose to the occasion that presented itself.

With hundreds of submissions, thousands of votes, it is narrowed down to the best artwork. These cool shirt artist have claimed the top spot in t-Shirt designs. These t-shirt designers have identified themselves as some of the most elite in the world. Creative, detailed and composed t shirt designs available for sale at
Next weeks shirt will be a sure thrill with the release of zombies attacking pin up girls, runnn. Thanks for reading the bottom of the press release.

TopCat89 - 5/4/2012, 9:51 AM
The t-shirt that came 3rd place is my favourite. 1st is very good.

Very cool t-shirts all round!
Wildaniel - 5/4/2012, 10:29 AM
No Catwoman? LAME!
Ha1frican - 5/4/2012, 11:25 AM
3rd is the only one that doesn't suck...
cosmicstranger - 5/4/2012, 11:36 AM
The Bane images...completely suck (this is a euphemism). The only one I am interested in having is the 3rd place shirt.
BatmanFTW - 5/4/2012, 11:46 AM
Lame, #5 is the only good one!
Greengo - 5/4/2012, 11:52 AM
^and wasn't picked by Nolan LOL
xmen145 - 5/4/2012, 12:21 PM
no catwoman
nowtheresaBATman - 5/4/2012, 7:02 PM
the 3rd place one is the best. 1st & 2nd place suck.
nowtheresaBATman - 5/4/2012, 7:03 PM
the 4th place one looks cool too but Bane's fingers look Fct up.
Vital - 5/4/2012, 11:09 PM
#5 looks like the Dovokin from Skyrim.

#2 should have been in fourth place.
The rest are pretty damn good, I'm surprised #4 isn't like #2 or #3.

The blue Bane one (#4) is the best one in my opinion.
Vital - 5/4/2012, 11:10 PM
@now, Bane's finger is just curling, nothing [frick]ed up about it.
Vital - 5/4/2012, 11:14 PM
Wow I just read all of your guy's opinions, yikes, you guys have TERRIBLE TASTE in shirt designs if you think these suck. They are all good, some better than others, but still all well made. I would know, cause I do shirt designs as a hobby/side job. It's not easy, and these look great. I'm sorry that these aren't walmart superhero kid shirts you guys buy lol. Get some standards people.
Vital - 5/5/2012, 1:07 AM
Not to mention you all sound like complete douche bags. Congrats on making yourself sound like a piece of shit. Here's your trophy. "Mom when I grow up I wanna be a miserable internet person".
