How goodnamesaretook started their t-shirt journey


We are an affiliate network looking for a “hip”, “cool” & “trendy” t-shirt design that could resemble that of those made by the Ed Hardy company. Something that our clients (aged 15 to 40) would love to wear. Our clients are primarily in their 20’s and early 30’s and many make a good living in the industry. They tend to indulge themselves in large purchases such as expensive cars, homes, vacations, etc.

Here are some links to some shirts we liked. These are not necessarily favorites because of any particular thing that is incorporated into the design, we just like these designs.…skulls.jpg…eleton.jpg…ribals.jpg…fskull.jpg…ktgirl.jpg…Native.jpg

Please read the full brief for more information.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We werethinking that we’d like to create an Ed Hardy-esque t-shirt that we can use asa giveaway or gift to our clients for an upcoming convention in NYC. We’d liketo see some of these items all “rolled up” into a cool design for a shirt thata client would actually be inclined to wear out for a night on the town.

we’re in the internet business so maybe something along those lines included init.

We wouldalso like to see the name of our company cleverly integrated into the design.Not our logo in the design, but the name written out in the same type of scriptthat you see the name “Ed Hardy” written on the shirts. (or included some otherway in the design

Companyname will either be ‘’ or ‘’. we’re not positive yet whichwe want it to be.

If thisall goes over well we may decide to make this a recurring item that we produce,different for each show that we go to.
Stay tuned for possible updates to the briefalong the way as well as some possible links to designs that we like.


- Main design in grayscale, companyname in a subtle color so that it will “pop” from the rest of the design
- Although it is for a t-shirt, itdoes not have to be only on the front or only on the back. The design can wraparound the side of the shirt or up and over the shoulder. Like I said…BECREATIVE!!

Don't want

- Nothing that has already been produced
- only original designs
- Nothing copy written or "stolen" from somewhere
- No clip-art or stock images
