I found an interesting t-shirt design from TShirtHell.com today that made me giggle. What I love about this shirt is that it spits in the face of colorblind artists like myself, taunting them that there is much more to see (even on a simple t-shirt website). Truth be told, I can’t read the shirt, but I am sure it says what it proclaims on the product page.
From a web design perspective, you may find it frustrating to compensate for a ‘disability’ (read about Mr.Lee’s unfortunate shopping experience at W3.org). The frustration is that if you are not colorblind, you cannot tell what those folks can and cannot see. If you are a colorblind web designer you can’t tell that your color scheme clashes. Trust me, there have been plenty of times when I have placed two colors on the canvas that made non-colorblind people grasp their eyes in pain from the unnatural color combinations.
So the t-shirt is a great tool to help you cope with your ‘disability’. Wear it proudly. If someone asks you to take the inappropriate garment off, simply quip “I’m colorblind and see nothing wrong with this shirt”.
I say, f**k the colorblind! Myself inlocluded!
