Every single week for the past 10 years, Weekday has been creating printed t-shirts that reflect current events and topics that popular culture and our community are engaging in at the moment. The project is called Zeitgeist and to celebrate its 10-year anniversary, Weekday has come up with a way to preserve a selection of the most iconic t-shirts to help future generations understand our times.


“We think the Zeitgeist t-shirts are much more and deserve to stand the test of time and live beyond our lifetime.” – said Anna Norling – Head of Design at Weekday.

“We’ve put a selection of ten of the most popular Zeitgeist prints into steel boxes, designed to last for up to 3000 years. This way, the t-shirt prints will be preserved for future generations and maybe even visitors from outer space that are interested in what occupied the minds of people in the 2010s.

We’re putting the boxes in the hands of Zeitgeist fans we call “The Zeitgeist Guardians”. To become a guardian, you must sign a contract promising to keep the box for the rest of your life and pass it on to an heir who can continue the mission.”

If you want to be one of The Zeitgeist Guardians, you can apply writing a DM to @weekdayofficial and tell them which Zeitgeist t-shirt print and why you believe is the most important to preserve for the future generations.
