Hand in..

I have not been able to blog much lately, all the hand ins are next week and I am just going out of my mind with work, I have so much to do and so little time to do them. Here are few photos of what I have been working on for my T-shirt project. This is, of course, not final outcomes, only few sketches.

Retro Inspiration

Everyday I check on StyleSight, for inspiration and research. Today I went there searching for something to help me with my T-shirt project. I found a lot of ideas for colour palettes, and how to make them but I also came across tutorials how to add dimension and texture in Illustrator, it can help me make my print design more “retro like”. I have not tried it yet but I definitely will.

I also came across few very inspiring illustration designers.

Creative T-Shirts

I have this very exciting T-shirt project in Uni this term. Basically we are supposed to design and develop a brand with a logo and strapline and then design few creative prints for T-shirts. I am only on research stage right now and I have found so many amazing print designs that I love.
