I am a huge space nerd and have always marvelled at these great images taken by Hubble or other space telescopes or imagined by great space artists.
I want to start printing these great images on T-shirts and start selling them to the space nerd community. But, I want you to come up with a great "design template" for these t-shirts. Ideally, once you've cracked the template, I should just need to select a great image, fit it in the template, change around the text and have the product ready.
Another key design goal is that I would like this design template to be a vehicle of the brand in some senses. The perfect design would be such that just by the way the image and the text is laid out, makes it synonymous to our brand.
- T-shirt design lends itself to a portrait layout, but many times the images would be landscape. How do we fit these well on a tee?
- Most of these images will have a dark/black background with some dramatic colors. Please suggest the color of tshirts we should use for the tees. I don't want to mess up the feel by putting these on white or red tshirts.
- Please keep space for some verbiage about the image. I want it to drive some curiosity with the people who see the tshirts. Maybe a 2-3 word headline and 15-20 word description.
Exmaple Photo: https://www.spacetelescope.org/images/heic0514a/
Example headline: Fantasy Sculpted by Stars
Example Description: 210,000 light-years away in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a cluster of stars arch gasses into a stunning scuplture
- I have seen some tshirts with just the images stuck on a black tshirt. These look tacky. But, if framed well, it looks very nice.
Good example: https://i.etsystatic.com/10199259/r…4_e7qd.jpg (framed well, it looks nice)
Not finalized yet, but our brand might be called spacetees.co
