About the class


Wouldn't it be cool to wear a t-shirt with your own design or even see your friend wearing it? In this class you will design a simple print with a motif of your favourite animal. The result of the class will be a vector file prepared for personalised printing on your t-shirt, bag, pillow cover (or anything else you can imagine).
I'll guide you through the whole process from the initial sketches to the final "ready to print" piece and will give a little overview about printing techniques you could use.

Class project

Welcome to the class project!

In this class you will design a simple print with a motif of your favourite animal.

While doing your project you will learn:

  • how to stylise your animal step by step into a simple graphic motif
  • different methods of stylisation, so you can choose which suits you the most
  • some basic composition rules which will be helpful while creating your design
  • how to vectorise your hand drawn sketch
  • about different printing techniques you can use

By the end you will have a vector file prepared for printing on your t-shirt, bag, pillow cover (or anything else you can imagine).  

What you may upload to your project gallery:

  • sketches while working on project
  • inspirations
  • screenprints of your digitisation process
  • your final design
  • your final design printed on different mediums. For example: you wearing t-shirt with your own design!
  • notes on your process and inspiration

Post your project while doing it, so you can share your step by step experience with me and other students and get comments and recommendations for your project.

Let's make beautiful and useful designs together :)
