This is the latest design I have been working on for a client. I finished the design and just like the client I am very happy with it. I only want show a sneak peek of what was made and I can't wait to see the final product. If you like what you see and want me to create something, send me an e-mail and let's talk.
Vectortuts has a very good tutorial on their site that may be very helpful for everyone. The above image is the final product from the tutorial, but you can read and see the step by step for the tips and tools used by Rafahu Aguilar.
Bluu Dreams has a great Cyber Monday sale. They have some pretty awesome new t-shirts and sweatshirts. I think the custom pocket tee design might be the best. The pockets have shark camouflage, which I thought is very creative for the aquatic themed brand. I know the owner personally and I can tell you that the tees are very high quality as well as the sweatshirts. Each and every item is top notch.
ALSO, if you spend over $50 with the code "MONDAY" at checkout you'll get free shipping.
Rob Dobi released his latest Fullbleed series, which always look good. They're clever and the graphics are simple, making them instant favorites. You can purchase the latest tees here. http://www.fullbleed.org
These certainly aren't your normal Christmas cards, which is a very good thing. It adds a very dark twist to this lovely holiday season. The message on the front is repeated inside. Each one comes with
brown, ribbed envelopes, and are individually wrapped in cellophane. It is available as a set of 5 or 10, as well as individual sets.
I'm a fan of Benny Gold and find him inspirational. I can relate to him as he is a graphic designer who runs a clothing brand, a successful one at that. Originally I was not impressed, but maybe I was just jealous. His brand is always consistent, the graphics are very clean, and his following continues to grow. He released a new collection, his Shot Well collection which is his latest. Aside from the Par Avion shirts, I find his camo tees to be a standout in his new stuff. They're normal camo, but look like clouds. He has a 25% off today on Cyber Monday.
Definitely pick up from Branded Baron apparel and other goodies as the sale is a really good one. Trust me the clothing is very good quality and the printing is well done. I also have to add the designs aren't too shabby if I don't say so myself.(I did design the majority of them). In an oversaturated market, this is a quality line.
