Shiny Skull

A reoccuring doodle turned into a patch, I was determined to create the perfect classic logo tee.

The vision I had for this project was to create my own polo style of Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie, or Hollister.

This patch would replace all those logos, and become the first product of the line.

I realize this course is focused on screen printing, but luckily this design can easily translate to a screen print, and be just as successful. (It would certainly be more cost effective.)

Really love how these came out.

Even decided to create a custom hat to bring the brand to another level. Hats are a love of mine, from classic snapbacks, to unconstructeds and 5 panels. (Bucket hats, I see you too.)

Teamed up with a local photographer in Dallas, TX, @9inety6ix. Great dude and very talented too. Photos for a lookbook that is in the works.

Even looks great on a camo pocket tee. The design is very versatile and I like how it came out very much.

Seeing the photos for the lookbook really brought the whole project together.

After screen printing a small handful of shirts on my own for my friends and I, I submitted this design to Cotton Bureau. It was accepted, and sold 41 units aside from over 100+ designs that dropped at the same time.

As a joke and way of advertising, celebrity mockups were used to promote the shirt's release

The posts were successful, gained traction, and brought in several orders.

Enamel Pins

After seeing all the success of the items above, I decided to venture into enamel pins and buttons.

Buttons

A more cost-friendly alternative to enamel pins, but still perfect for use and style

Thank you for your time if you made it through the entire project. From the bottom of my heart, I am fighting and striving to make my dreams come true.

The passion I have for appreal, design, creating collateral, and having fun is off the charts to the point of disbelief. A lot of work was spent over the last months creating and sharing all of this work, so thank you again for your time in looking at it all.
