About This Class

How To Create A Text-Based T-Shirt Design For Merch By Amazon is part of my Designs For Non-Designers series here on Skillshare.


In this class, I explain exactly why you should be creating Text Based Designs for Merch by Amazon and I also take a look at basic typography and where you can source the fonts that you will use on your t-shirt designs.

The class then goes on to show you how you can easily identify fonts that you like the look of, before finally creating some text-based designs from scratch:

  • the creation of a simple design from within an iOS app, called Over
  • the creation of a more complex text design from within a professional vector type application, called Affinity Designer

So why not join me in this class today and discover how easy it is for us non-designers to create perhaps the most successful of all of the types of t-shirt designs that sell well and make a great new side income through Merch by Amazon.
