Tee Shirts for DayStar

I always enjoy designing tee shirts for screen printing because it’s such a unique process.  You see, when designing for screen printing, one can’t use gradients, shadows or other “effects” in the design.  The reason for this would take too long to explain; the point is that it is a fresh challenge to the designer to translate the vision into a single color, broken down into halftone dots and solids.  In addition, the color of the shirt fabric becomes the background of the design, whereas in print production, you usually have white as the background color.  This adds another new element to the design process.

These shirts were used to give to first time guests at DayStar Christian Fellowship.  Their target demographic was college educated 25–35 year old men and women living in Greensboro, NC.
