About us

The designs on the t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies acknowledge the achievements of some of the greatest mathematicians and physicists the world has known.

What is the Fibonacci golden ratio, how it is applied in art and in the construction of buildings, and how can it be seen in the astronomical spirals of the night sky, and the spiral pattern of leaves on a flower stem.

Ramanujan could not pass elementary school exams, and yet he totally bewildered the most talented mathematicians at Cambridge University.  

These T-shirts spark conversations: what does it all mean, and where did you get that?

 I have a lifelong passion for mathematics and physics, and I enjoy bringing these gifted and dedicated mathematicians to the notice of the wider community.
The world is as it is because of their work. 

 History shows over the past two or three thousand years there were many mathematicians and physicists working in total isolation, having “out of this world” ideas – ideas that were completely original, with no one to exchange ideas with, or check in a library. There was very little apparatus, other than what they made themselves. In the 1400s, Danish aristocrat Tycho Brahe did not even have a telescope when he made his astronomical observations, all by eye.

 Yet Tycho Brahe's data enabled Kepler to establish finally the solar planetary system, and subsequently, Newton to derive his universal gravitational equation.

 The stories behind some of those famous mathematicians were usually stories of ordinary people.

They included the Bernoulli family of Swiss mathematical academics, who made remarkable contributions to the development of various branches who math, and yet still had time to be arguing among themselves. Then there was the intense rivalry between Newton and German polymath Gottfried Leibniz as to who developed calculus first. Newton also had a running battle with Robert Brooke, which persisted for decades. 

Over the centuries there have been many extraordinarily gifted mathematicians and physicists, each making their contribution to the development of our present knowledge of the modern world.

 If you love math, share it with the world – wear the T-shirt!
