10 Professional Tips for T-Shirt Design
Creative people love to design t-shirts. Illustrators, painters, graphic designers, and pretty much anyone else who have a creative flair understand the appeal of designing new t-shirts. The thought of having it done is very cool! Here are a few tips for coming up with a great t-shirt design.
Work around your concept – You’ve done a whole lot of brainstorming, so now what do you do? Don’t get too far ahead of yourself. Mull it over, go out for some lunch, have a bath, ride a bike. If that great idea comes to you immediately then that’s great, but generally you should thoroughly explore your options, think deeply about your creations and work around the concepts that you like.
Picture the picture on your t-shirt – Anyone with a modicum of experience in t-shirt knows how different things look on a t-shirt compared to a computer screen. You shouldn’t be afraid to create mock versions of your t-shirt designs, print out tests and actually place them on the t-shirts. This gives you a more accurate idea of the real life Colour and the size of the design.
Keep things simple, or detailed – Everyone likes to see a t-shirt boast excellent attention to detail and skill in drawing. When you see a really great design on a tee and just have to have one, it will often be because of the beautiful detail.
But just as impressive are the really simple classic designs that take the no-nonsense approach and get the message across clearly and in its most simple form. The point here is that it is often a bad idea to try and do both. You either want detail, or simplicity – don’t get lost in the middle.
Think about the market – It is very important to think about your market. Think about whether you are designing your product for younger or older markets. As any good marketing expert will tell you, you should have a clear idea in your head of the type of person that you want to see wearing your design. What other brands do they wear? What is their lifestyle?
Get learning about t-shirt printing – You can just dive in head first into the t-shirt printing game and expect the surface a winner. You need to have a proper understanding of the technicalities of the digital design process, as well as the choices between digital and non-digital forms of print. Do you know the different between digital printing and screen printing? Screen printing is still the most popular form.
Find a good printer – Once you have the design completed, now is the time to find a good printer, and here you need to be as considerate as with the design process. You could go with a larger, reputable company or check with your local screen printing company. Either way you need to think about the types of t-shirts that are available for print. The fabric, the size, the labelling, and the cost all have an effect on the end result.
The golden rule is to go with a company that gives retail-worthy results, and approaches the process as an art – that it surely is.
Prepare the artwork for print – Check out tutorials which detail how to prepare your design for print. You should really think about using Pantone Colours, and outlining text and expanding strokes.
Set the trend – Getting inspired by other t-shirt designers can give you the drive to come up with new designs, but you should not be copying others. The best designers keep their cards close to their chest and are already on to the next designs by the time the current ones are on display.
Make the humour subtle – It is not usually a good idea to create t-shirts with jokes that are cheap or tasteless, but it can be really clever to have a subtle joke as part of your t-shirt design. Check out designers that have found the right balance between design and humour.
