How Dan Correia started their t-shirt journey
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the t-shirt?
My goal is to find a designer to work with me long term. I am looking for unique and unusual designs which incorporate the patterns, colors, and feelings present in the images I've attached. The idea of the project is to demonstrate, through clothing, the beauty and history of Portuguese culture. I want designs and colors that only Portuguese people would know. The designs should not be overwhelming. Relatively simple, but meaningful. I am a very limited art background and am not trained in using photoshop. Finding the right designer/style would help me to work with them to incorporate my ideas/concepts into further other clothing.
I think its safe to say that the images present all include bold/bright colors. Some of the images may present a majestic, strong, stoic, type of feeling. Portugal is an old country with a very rich history. I hope someone out there can help me capture what is in my head!!
I picture t-shirts that are mostly one solid base color, with some patterns/images/artwork on the sleeves, pocket/chest, or bottom of the t-shirt. I was thinking to avoid having a standard image in the middle of the shirt, but I am open to what designers come up with.
What to avoid
Although I am targeting men/boys, I understand that some of the images may be particularly feminine. Thats completely fine. Im looking for unique images that would be popular among teens and young adults, while also capturing the essence of Portugal. I am open to unique/unusual designs.
