Hey, yo. Recently, I was hired to design the tees for the homecoming
at my very own ole high school, Bishop Dunne High, in Dallas, TX. The
theme this year was “circus” as the event was aptly titled “Bishop Dunne
Presents: The Greatest Homecoming on Earth”. Just like the previous tee
I did for a high school, I set out to design a tee that the students
wouldn’t mind wearing outside of school. Initially, I had came up with
two ideas: one being a mainly text-based (and admittedly boring) design;
the other being a tribute to old-school circus posters, which is the
one I chose.
I decided to go with a more detailed/realistic approach this time
around, which is something that is new for me. I want to try something
different and I’m happy with how it came out. I had to limit the design
to three colors to minimize the overall printing cost. I also mocked up
four different versions of the tee: two different tee colors and two
different design placements.
