T-Shirt Design

About This Project

Designing with Limited Palette for T-Shirts

Working within limitations as a designer is an important skill that translates to any medium or format.  Design is a process of problem solving and limitations help define the goals you want to achieve.  T-shirts with 1-4 colors are cheapest to make, but one-off full-color RGB designs with a simple PNG transparency are now possible and look great.

T-Shirts as Fashion, Promotional Items, and High-Margin Products

I’ve designed shirts for various markets and purposes over my career.  All are shown above.  T-shirts have become high fashion items for trendy mall shops, commemorative gift shop products for zoos and museums, etc, and as branded giveaways at conventions, and expos.
