This cool t-shirt is from a brand called Primo, which looks to have been an apparel printing company from the 1990s. The copyright on the shirt is for Primo Designs Inc. which is the name of a custom screen print and embroidery company based out of Springfield, Illinois. The Primo tag has also been found on licensed apparel for properties like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman.
This t-shirt features a message written in Cyrillic script that reads, "work hard" and the graphic is designed to parody the propaganda posters that were once popular in Soviet Russia. The work hard slogan resembles some of the tag lines that were used to promote the development of the USSR, and the graphic's artistic style is a throwback to the constructivism art movement that was founded by Russian artists like Vladimir Tatlin and Alexander Rodchenko.
