About the designer:

Tom’s Tee is a collaboration between Tom’s Hardware, the world’s biggest tech webmagazine, and Tee Tee, the world’s coolest (maybe :D ) t-shirt community.The designer of the first t-shirt in Tom’s Hardware’s history is Simon Butler, and here below you can read something about him!!

Dr Simon Butler, 37 years old designer from the UK.Like him on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, buy his art on Redbubble!

Tell us something about this design.

This idea was the first one I had.  I think the hammer is a strong image and of course it is part of the TH logo so it was an obvious choice really.  The idea of building the image out of pieces of tech is idea that has been done before, but I think it works well for this design.

Who is and where does Simon Butler come from?

I’m from North Yorkshire in the UK and I’ve been working as a freelance artist for nearly 10 years, mainly as a graphic artist for video games but at the moment I’m working on a new graphic novel called ‘Enter The Hero’ which should see the light of day later this year!

What’s a day in the life of Simon Butler like?

It’s a lot like ground hog day to be honest :)

Mac or PC?

PC. Only because I use 3D programs.

What’s your relationship with technology?  

I like my tech and gadgets, but I’m not a super nerd who has everything. I’m somewhere in the middle (plus I couldn’t afford to keep up with it all).

Does it scare you?  

Technological innovation in general is amazing.  It’s incredible to think how far tech has evolved over the last 20 years or so. I don’t think it’s something to be scared of as long as it’s used for good and not evil!

What do you expect human kind to do in the next 100 years when it comesto technology? What’s the limit?

It would be nice to think we’d be heading towards a perfect society with the help of technical advancement, but I think that’s maybe being too optimistic.

Android or iOS??  

I’m going to get shot down either way aren’t I?!  I’ve only ever used iOS devices and I’ve worked on a dozen or so apps for iOS too so I’ll have to side with Apple on that one!

Post-apocalyptic world. No trace of human race. It happens that you’ve survived and managed to save…

You are the governor of the world. What’s the first thing you would do?

Resign :)

You ve just won a DeLorean time machine. Which historic period/time/moment would you like to visit?

I’d probably head back to when I was born – 2056
