WIP: Before it was Cool

posted by ejiboo • 1 year ago

Think this could work with DBH? i initially had an idea where i had the words on a scroll-type thing but then i just got saved by the bell in my head and tried this out and i think with some work it would be pretty dope.

it’s kind of a nab at that saying about hipsters, “before it was cool” and obviously one dude who did a lot of things before they were cool, my man george.

I like where this is heading. I would maybe consider removing the text or making it smaller. The glasses and the moustache are great but the hat should really be more realistic looking. Also your 80’s inspired shapes could use some refining. Here are some references to help you out.

That’s a pretty huge improvement in my opinion dude.

I took it a little further with some more leopard, zebra, triangles and brought the text back. hope you guys like this one and i really appreciate it, stray – means a lot coming from you!

I actually prefer the last one too, without the shapes etc. Nice and big print, single colour discharge ink… I would wear it.

Nah, personally, I think the shapes and colors make it a more eye-catching shirt.

I like both versions but get your neon on with those 80s shapes, lol.

You need a win so I can give you a collective store ;)

playing around with colors now, here are a couple subtle variations.

1, 2 and 3 are flat whereas 4, 5 and 6 are the same color combinations but textured. i’m gonna see how it looks mocked on a shirt. hope you enjoy and thanks so much for the comments so far!

@ejiboo It looks amazing! I think I prefer 3,5 & 6. I’m not much of a stickler for neon colours but I love this. The concept is awesome and it’s good to see that you are trying so many variations to get it right, like a good designer :D

Let me know when you submit this and I’ll vote on it ASAP!
