How It All Started


Anyone who attends Ithaca College or Cornell University is familiar with the phrase “Ithaca is Gorges”. It refers to the beautiful gorges in the Ithaca area. If you go to the college-town shops you can purchase a T-Shirt with this phrase on it. Well since I had connections to Binghamton, NY (which is not too far from Ithaca), I went ahead and took it a different direction.

T-Shirt Design

Binghamton in upstate New York is a beautiful place to live. But one common complaint is the weather, where it often is either cloudy or rainy. Therefore I designed a T-Shirt that pokes fun at both the Ithaca T-Shirt and the Binghamton area. Instead of an “I” as a waterfall, you see a “B” with a rain cloud.

Web Design

To take this one step further, I created a website binghamtonisovercast.com, where I am able to sell these T-Shirts to those who are familiar with the “Ithaca is Gorges” joke. I designed the site using WordPress and some custom HTML/CSS. You can check it out below or visit the Facebook page here.
