Tee Designs

I had the most fun job ever land on my desk the other day: designing new staff t-shirts for the rock radio broadcasting station I work for. The directive? “Do what you think would look cool and we’ll go from there.” I’ve always loved iconography, so I whipped out some sketches to vectorize in Illustrator.  I knew this was a laborious process, so I started to play around with the program (I haven’t used it since school, which was a few versions ago) and had a glorious epiphany. Illustrator CC has a grown-up version of the infamous ‘live trace’ tool. It’s basically a two-click process that allowed me to finish a day-long process in a matter of minutes. I’m satisfied with the product and I learned something new along the way. Color me tickled.
