Say Hello To Spreadshirt’s Leading & Seasoned Designer Behind Amorphia Apparel

Nerdy Slacker Offers Insider Tips for Over a Decade of Spreadshirt Shop Success

Spreadshirt, the self-expression global e-commerce company is the shop platform of choice for Amorphia Apparel’s funny and surreal designs. The label was founded by Jeremy Kalgreen, a former student from Columbus, Ohio in January 2006. Amorphia Apparel sells tees with graphics ranging from all things science to band shirt mashups and even parody vs. reality shirts, supporting the president. Jeremy’s art is an outward expression of his self-described ‘nerdy slackers’ taste and features a good mix of messages and designs for his intended community.

Amorphia’s most recognized design appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine in 2014 as proudly sported by a member of the Health.Gov team and featured a bubbling science beaker. Creating and designing apparel was something that Jeremy began as a hobby – earning a few hundred dollars per month while he continuously updated his creations. Two years into this venture, one of his creations, Teach the Controversy, went viral. This enabled him to pay off his student loans and eventually turned into a rewarding and self-supporting new career – using Spreadshirt as his shop host and on-demand printing service of choice. The inspiration behind his designs often come directly from fan requests. Due to his long-standing popularity and stellar talent, Jeremy receives new requests about three times faster than he can fulfill them, so he has to be selective with new designs. His customers like having a shirt that they know the average person wouldn’t understand – almost creating a sense of wonder for like-minded strangers with unique designs that make them laugh and bond over the joke.
