Graphic t-shirts look pretty simple, right? While designing a t-shirt can look easy-peasy, a common sticking point is choosing the right font.

screen printed t-shirt ideas and themes

We recently stumbled across these brilliant t-shirts by The Unrefinery.com and couldn’t help but love them. They sort of speak for themselves – but what really impressed us is that they’re so simple, yet very witty and very clever. It just shows you don’t have to think up long-winded, elaborate designs in order to create successful artwork for t-shirts.

Digital artist Bram Vanhaeren, has epic typography skills. He’s put these said skills to good use in his “An Idea Everyday” series. This was a self initiated body of work based on self improvement.

“I promised myself, if I want to become better in what I do, I have to work harder and produce more. A fun way to stay creative and work on something you like, is by working on an habit. I aim to create a typography treatment every single day and keep it interesting. That way I can share quotations from books I’m reading, films I watch and random thoughts I’ve had that I would like to share with others.”

We’re really into our typography here at Icon Printing, as good type work can make or break a design or piece of artwork. We thought these pieces by Bram were too good to not share – as not only is the design work really strong, but the quotes are pretty great too. Enjoy!

Claudia Doms is a graphic designer from Germany who is currently living and working in London. She’s recently done a bit of work for Topshop, including coming up with these screen printed canvas tote bags. They were created in time for fashion week, promoting NEWGEN winner Mary Katrantzou and other up and coming fashion designers.screen printed tote bags

In 1993 the British Fashion Council created New Generation (NEWGEN), one of the world’s most internationally recognised talent identification schemes. NEWGEN continues to showcase and promote new designer businesses and since 2001 the scheme has been sponsored by Topshop.

Claudia has captured these bags really nicely – utilising everyday back drops for some, others are livened up by printed fabric swatches from the designers current collections.

These tote bags make a great canvas for almost any type of design or logo. Check out our range here. For more info on tshirt printing uk, get in touch!
