Der Vater Nummer 1 #1 Dad in German Father's Day Buttons



Part of a Series

This German design 'Der Vater Nummer 1' is part of a series of designs I did for Fathers in several languages. For French speaking Fathers, I made this 'Le Père Numero 1' design. For Italian speaking Fathers, 'Il Padre Numero 1'. And for Spanish speaking Fathers, two versions: in the colors of the Mexican Flag this 'El Padre Número 1' and in the colors of the Spanish Flag, this 'El Padre Número 1'.

A Popular & Interesting Choice of Color

At the moment, this is my most popular German language gift of the past month. I think it's interesting that people have been prefering a product for Fathers, with the choice of a pink background. Pink is not typically what an Artist would select for a masculine color. And yet, it is clearly what people wanted this past month. I'm very glad I offered them a choice of background colors :-)

Fun & Funky in Pink

There is, however, a healthy school of Pop Art in modern German Art Culture. When I first matched the colors of the German flag to a pink background, I felt it was a good fit. And I was remindered of this Pop Art characteristic of comtemporary German Art. I think it's a fun and funky mix of colors and one that I enjoy immensley.

Clip from 'Why Does Herr R. Run Amok?'

The Record Store Scene

This scene has stuck in my mind ever since I first saw this film. It is a great example of the way Fassbender's films work. The camera style is simple, almost documentary in its nature. The editing in minimal and inobtrusive. The scene itself is a window into social awkwardness and loneliness.

It is difficult to watch as Herr R. struggles to explain himself and the song he wishes to buy to the young, hip shop assistants. Herr R. is desperate for something different in his life. Trying to buy this song, is to attempt to find his own personality in the din of his existance. To walk into a record store and buy a new song is a tiny thing for most of us. But to someone who has Herr R.'s life, it is a massive moment. A defining moment.

Fassbender shines his cinematic light upon this lonely man. Where other filmmakers focus on gangsters, action heros and monsters, Fassbender shows us Herr R. A man most of us would fail to notice on the bus ride to work. And in Fassbender's spotlight, we see the nobility, struggle and eventual collapse of Herr R.

As someone who suffered a live long struggle with depression until very recently, and will always be in recovery, I have a great deal of respect and affection for Fassbender's choice of subject. It is the most lonely of society that need Art's attentions the most.

For more information on Fassbender and his films, visit The Fassbender Foundation.

Gute Fahrt Good Trip in German Vacations Travel T Shirts



I sold a copy of this German Language Gute Fahrt Design over the weekend - very pleased! :-)

'Gute Fahrt' is German for 'Good Trip'. It's the perfect German language expression for the summer, with so many of us taking holidays / vacations at this time of year!

Once again I choose a friendly font for this most friendly of German language expressions :-) I wanted a font that was, first of all, easy to read. But also a font that was soft on the eye, without jagged edge.

I feel this font gives the right friendly, positive feel to the 'Gute Fahrt' expression on this German language gift / present.

I wanted to add a graphic to this Gute Fahrt design that would enhance the effect and message of the design. I am really pleased with the look of the ship I've placed here. It's a really eye-catching and dynamic image!

I feel the ship graphic carries a real sense of movement into this German language gift / present.

As is the case with all my German language designs, I like to us the wonderful, rich colors of the German flag: you'll notice that each individual element (text and graphic) has their own 'German flag color scheme'.

I really like the look of this repeated black, red & yellow pattern down this Gute Fahrt gift / present.

The design featured here in on a light blue background, which I feel works well with the 'sea going' nature of the design. You can also buy this design in a wide range of different colors :-)

I feel this Gute Fahrt design would make for the perfect German language gift / present for a lover of the German language who is going on holiday / vacation.

Perhaps you have family back in Germany, who you know are planning a trip, and you're looking for a gift / present? This Gute Fahrt German language product would make for the perfect gift / present.

This German language Gute Fahrt design would also be a unique and original gift / present for linguaphiles, linguists and lovers of language in general, who are planning a holiday / vacation.

I feel this Gute Fahrt product line would work for both young and old:

Perhaps you know a German speaker who is about to retire and go on a cruise or tour? Or perhaps you know a student learning German who is about to take a year out and go backpacking around the world?

This Gute Fahrt German language product would be perfect as a gift / present for either the old retirement cruise or the young backpacker!

This German language design is available on 83 different products, so you'll have plenty choice of gift / present! :-)

Guten Tag (German Flag Colors & Smiley Face) Tshirts


This is the first German Language Design that I sold - I was so happy! :-)

I really love the simple, friendly effect of this design! I think it takes the everyday German phrase Guten Tag (hello in English) and depicts it in a simple, everyday, friendly way.

I selected a really friendly font for this Guten Tag design. Then I added a big smiley face :-) Finally I placed the whole design in the colors of the German flag: black, red and yellow.

I've sold a lot of these Guten Tag Smiley Face Tshirts, which makes me feel really happy. I love the idea of people sharing joy with my products.

I think this Guten Tag Tshirt would make the perfect gift or present for someone learning German at any level, but particularly beginners. This German language design would also work really well as a gift or present for germanophiles, linguaphiles and linguists in general, or anyone who loves the wonderful German Language :-)

This Guten Tag German Flag Colors & Smiley Face Tshirt is by far my most popular German Language Gift / Present.

This German language design is available on 83 different products, so you'll have plenty choice of gift / present! :-)
