From one amazing weekend in August 1989 (from designer Jim Sorenson):
Designer? Well, the Sub Pop logo existed already, the font is from the original, much cooler version of the Loser logo (Futura Extra Bold Condensed), and all the type is just Letraset presstype done in lines, and centered up. If that’s design work, well okay.
It matched the Sub Pop branding, anyhoo.
What was on the front?
Nothing particularly exciting, just a US dollar sign in the offset Sub Pop black against white.
Hey, cheers for answering! I didn’t expect that at all!!! Do you have a picture of that? And more importantly, is there a way I could get my hands on one of those?
Let me contact Jim Sorenson, the designer, and see if he has any for sale. He gave me three shirts in exchange for a book…which was incredibly generous.
Wow! Thank you! That would be great!!!
Sorry, Marie. I asked Jim and he’s all out.
What a shame! But big thank-you for asking. Good to know there are nice people out there
Thanks. Jim’s a good guy…in fact, he gave me shirts from both nights of the CoCA event, as well as the Green River ’08 reunion shirt because he felt sorry for me after my glasses got crushed at the GR show.
Aww. Now I don’t know if I should be jealous that you saw GR or sorry for your glasses
Just added you on FB, btw. Hope that was okay. It appears we’re sharing quite a few friends
