T-shirts are a major staple in the everyday, every person’s wardrobe. From plain tee’s, to patterned, to graphic, everyone has a t-shirt in their closet. T-shirt design is a great marketing tools and a great medium for showcasing your creativity. Here are some things to consider when designing a t- shirt:
1. Why are you designing this?
What is the purpose of this t-shirt? Is there a purpose? Should it represent or stand for something? Or is it just a nice design that should be shared with the public? Before designing your t-shirt, consider these questions. You should establish a core message or idea before you begin designing as different messages will require a different design.
2. Who am I making this for?
What is the audience? Who am I targeting? Where will they wear this? Before designing your shirt consider these questions as well. Knowing who you are designing for and the trends/patterns of that demographic will help move your design process along tremendously.
3. What is the market for my T-shirt design?
If you are selling for profit, consider the market you want to target. Will they buy this t-shirt design over others that are already competing in the market?
4. Do I have the skills to create this T-shirt design?
Decide early on if you possess the expertise or skill to create your design. Some complex designs may require assistance from a outside source, such as a graphic designer.
