Anthropology / Sociology Club T-Shirt; 2017
For this project I was commissioned by the Anthropology and sociology club at Easter Illinois University to design a club t-shirt based on Karl Marx and Franz Boas.
Step one of my design process was gathering decent images of both Karl and Franz. Above are the highest resolution photos I could find.
For step two I separated both figures from the background and proceed to bitmap them.
Following the bitmap, I planned to create a playing card style composition with each person's last name filling the opposing empty space. I included a diagonal crop down the middle to add a dynamic feel.
Above is the final t-shirt that was printed by Gavina Graphics. There was one small issue with the diagonal being printed black, but I assume it's because of the transparency and the lack of communication between the client and Gavina (I was not involved with production; just the design).
Thank you for viewing!
