I am a commercial screen printer who is developing several lines of custom t-shirts. I am currently looking for an illustrator with t-shirt illustration experience to help us develop and expand our line. The line I am currently developing is "beer related," with a comical fun vibe. I already have a decent traffic website with established sales.
The design of the shirts will range from simple but attractive text treatments of sayings and phrases I provide to more complex character based shirts.
Designer must be flexible and a bit diverse in their style. One shirt may be a funny phrase and a simple beer glass done in one color. Another may be a nice looking text treatment in a couple colors. Yet another shirt (or a series of shirts) may have a cartoon-ish character with text. Illustrators must be comfortable with t-shirt illustration specifically understanding graphics designed for textile print. I print my screens using Illustrator and I create my sample shirt graphics for the web using Photoshop so you must be proficient in both. Lastly, you must be creative with the ability to take an idea and create something interesting without being told exactly what to do. I have used designers in the past that literally needed a sketch from me to come up with anything...if I wanted to sketch it, I would draw it myself...:)
I am looking to develop an ongoing relationship with illustrators who can provide interesting design after interesting design for my shirts. The timeline will fluctuate but rarely will anything be an emergency. I will probably give you 5 or more ideas at once with funny phrases or illustration ideas and have you design shirts in batches. Also, in my commercial business I sometimes need illustrations for specific clients. That would be something else I could pass off to you and these projects may have a bit more urgency.
The designs and the rights of the illustrations must be my property! That is extremely important because these designs will be sold under my brand name.
Finally, the "beer related," line is only the first of my branded lines. Our plan is to develop 7 lines in total over the next year or two, each with it's own website, branding, etc. I am looking for someone who may want to continue helping me with shirt design for these other brands.
I am really excited about this line and I am very hopeful that I can find a friendly, talented, flexible, and affordable artist. Thanks so much and take care.
