Oh yeah. That’s right… another new design!
I Like Big Ands - and I cannot lie! Typography nerds unite!
Just like Love Is Black, I Like Big Ands was designed in-house by No Nasties. What’s the deal behind this one? For a start, we wanted to present strong colour stories on the t-shirts in addition to the design artwork, and the charcoal/slate colour combination was one we’d been eyeing up for a while.
We picked a simple but beautiful typographic element - the & - and worked on creating a highly stylised t-shirt around this single element. During the design process we tried different fonts, different sizes, different placements - and we love the final product!
I Like Big Ands is also special to us as we were lucky enough to see it in production on our last visit to the factory in Kolkata! We visit every few months and it’s always awesome to see the progress being made and to meet the people who make our lovely t-shirts. From the ink colour masters to the pattern making experts, they’re a talented bunch and it’s great to join them in the factory’s green spaces to chill out at tea time.
Check out that screen! Look familiar? These pictures are from the screen printing department where all the eco-friendly GOTS certified inks are mixed up and the colour experiments can begin! Testing, testing, testing til it’s perfect. Much respect to our Bengali printing bros!

Over & out. Tea & biscuits. Yes & please. Long live big ands!
