Jersey City! We are so metal!! I mean we have people dying left and right and everything is falling apart and there's zombies wandering the streets and everyone is.... speaking Norwegian... or something...

If you know me, you know one of my absolute obsessions in life is graphic design that is meant to be unreadable by normies. I LOVE IT so much. You see examples of this in psychedelic design of the 1960s, where bands used to practically announce they were giving away free LSD at concerts, but they'd do it in these drippy letters that (it was assumed) couldn't be read by the cops or your mom. Today, the most current manifestation of this style is in the logos for death metal bands. You're supposed to look at a band's logo and barely be able to make out the name, but *that's how you know they're really cool and metal.* This -- this tactic -- is brilliant. Text usually jumps out and screams at you visually; in these situations, it's buried and only reveals itself slowly.

That's what I was going for here. The "Jersey City" is still more readable than I necessarily wanted it to be, but I'm ok with that. It's a riff on death metal logos, not an actual death metal logo. And who knows, maybe I'll do an even more unreadable version in the future.

Shipping: $5 for the first tote bag, $.75 for additional bags.
