In the latest episode, Glen and Yong discuss the best practices for t-shirt designs. We had some technical difficulties with this episode and we apologize.
- CMYK, NOT RGB
- No Glitter or Glow in the Dark Designs, Shiny Font/Design, Gradients?
- Font that is readable
- Bold Clean Design with colors that work well with the shirt color (It can be more than 3 colored t-shirts, doesn’t matter what amazon says)
- Large elements, nothing small that could get lost or hidden, don’t want people to have to figure out what the shirt says or means
- Don’t Try to do too much and keep it simple. Try to stay away from People, Faces, Highly detailed objects
- Work with Silhouettes, Icons, and Typography
- Stay away from full paragraphs / short novels on the shirt (only a tagline)
- Know your target audience (If I was a dad, would I like this shirt?)
- Don’t be scared to use 50-75% of the design space (Doesn’t have to be a full 4500 x 5400 design)
