Matheus Lopes Castro, aka Mathiole, embarked on a career in T-shirt design about four years ago. Since then, he has had seven winning entries on Design By Humans. His design Chaos Theory was a ‘hot item’ on the site at the time of writing.

“Like 90 per cent of my designs, I did it in Photoshop and watercolours,” he reveals. “The main concept is the chaos theory itself – the idea that very small actions in one part of the world can have big consequences in another.

But going deeper, it’s a message for everyone think about their own acts. Sometimes you do something wrong and ignore it for being a small thing, but what if 10,000 people do the same thing, with the same thinking?”
