In this class, I cover how to absorb your clients’ direction thoughtfully, and execute an end product that fills their need, as well as the needs of their fan base. I will be letting the student into my thought process behind each decision. While the skills are important, it’s the thought behind the action thatwill set you apart from your peers.
With over a decade in the music merchandising industry, I have watched trends in band tees come and go. While the aesthetic of these pop culture staples is ever-changing, my process and techniques remain consistent. I create band tee graphics for a living, and have managed to stay passionate about it for quite some time. I have developed streamlined processes that allow me to work quickly and effectively, allowing myself to enjoy each project.
What You'll Learn
What You'll Make
You will design a graphic tee for a band. You will follow along through interview, research, brainstorming, sketches, execution, and presentation. All the while, as an added bonus, I will be accepting submissions from the students that will also be submitted to the band. The band will choose one of the student-submitted designs to put into production, and sell on tour.
This is an intermediate level class because prior knowledge of Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop is required. Students should have access to Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop which you can download a free trial of at Adobe.com
