Make a statement in this BRUTALIST-inspired tee shirt. This design is perfect for the graphic designer who loves the concrete slab-based aesthetic of BRUTALIST design.
The Brutalist design movement emerged in the mid-20th century as a reaction to the ornate and decorative styles that dominated architecture and design at the time. Brutalist design emphasizes using raw, unpolished materials such as concrete, steel, and brick and features massive, monolithic forms and simple, functional designs. One goal of Brutalist design was the democratizing of public spaces. However, concrete really shows its age, and most people see Brutalist architecture as a dehumanizing dystopia.
Like Brutalist architecture, there is a graphic design movement that shares the same name and principles. A style that emphasized the use of simple geometric shapes and a limited color palette, or often offensive bold colors. The graphic design version of Brutalist has a very IDGAF "ugly-pretty" look that is sweeping through the design world like a wrecking ball. Unfortunately, wrecking balls are also demolishing many Brutalist buildings worldwide due to a lack of understanding and appreciation for their architectural significance. Many people view Brutalist architecture as unattractive and austere and fail to see the beauty in the raw materials, bold forms, and functional design principles that underpin these structures.
