Good t-shirt design
Here are a couple basic things to keep in mind when designing a
t-shirt:
1. AVOID SQUARES AND RETANGLES
The human body is not hard edged (yeah I know you’re
ripped but the other folks wearing your shirts aren’t…).
Outlining something with a square or rectangle can be
boring. DON’T BE BORING.
GOOD!
2. APPAREL IS A MOVING TARGET – BE LEGIBLE.
Graphic apparel is moving target. Make it easy
to get your message out. Make it easy to read
and understand. Think big, think simple, think
easy. You only have a few second where
someone will be looking at your shirt. Make it
count!
NO!
Yes!
3. KEEP IT SIMPLE
Keep it simple and strong . That way no one can
miss what you are trying to say. Don’t
overcomplicate your ideas. It’s a message not a
pile of images.
NO!
Yes!
4. CONTRAST
Dark gray on black is not going to work. Subtlety is cool
and can be an effective design concept but make sure
your design stands out;. It doesn’t have to be loud –
just clear. Think of using opposite colors. Don’t overlap
dark on dark, or light on light, etc.
NO!
Yes!
• FONTS
The right font can make or break a design.
Also take into consideration of spacing each
character correctly so your text is clear and
not “muddy” .
• See the next few slides for how to do this
