How Babyfacedassassins started their t-shirt journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are an all girl indie / rock band. Our music has a slightly retro feel - Think of Nirvana / Pixies with a bit of Blondie / 70's New Wave. We play in and around London, England. Like many unsigned bands, we subsidise playing in a band with merchandise. We want to take our merchandise to a new level and we want you to help us with a design.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We're looking for a t shirt design for an all girl indie / grunge / punk rock band. We are looking for something eye catching, different however nothing too girly (i.e no pink and typically feminine / fluffy ) We would like something professional looking and something that relates to the rock/ punk/ grunge music. fwww.myspace.com/babyfacedassassins
The design will be used predominantly for a t-shirt, but if it works in a smaller size, we will also use it for badges. The t-shirt will be a maximum of 2 colour (white background, possibly grey if that works with the design), If the design works in one colour, so much the better.
Maximum size of design would generally be 35cm wide by 50cm high. The design will be screen printed so one screen will be used for all sizes of t-shirts from small to XL.
Our audience is across the board but we anticipate that most people purchasing the t-shirts will be 16-20 years old, mixed gender. We don't want to promote any violent / sexual images. We do want the design to stand out from the crowd. We don't want any cartoon representations of the band.
