Lowcost by Angellopro has a theme most funny t-shirt aficionados can relate to, the idea of preferring a cheerful, cheaper option to the high price and high status of a major brand. This balloon animal apes the look of Lacoste’s gator logo well, and does so with enough charm to feel more interesting than the real thing. I love the use of balloon because the material, fragility, high contrast highlights, and bright colors all convey the low cost idea well. My only criticism is in the type- it’s true that a simple sans serif font can mean generic, but it is also often used in high end applications. I’d have liked to see the T at an angle, maybe even dropped a bit lower on the shirt, to show that even the text has been rushed.
