Project: T-shirt Design for Musician Doe Paoro
Client: Middlewest Management / Doe Paoro
Objective: Work with Doe Paoro to develop t-shirt design for band merchandise
Process: Doe sent me a few things that inspired her – images of shadows and light, light coming in through the window blinds, light on the wall. It felt like a distorted image of a flag to me, so I created a modern riff on the Black Flag logo as if it were light coming in through the blinds and softened it a bit to fit the feminine nature of Doe’s music and to abstractly represent of her inspiration. I wanted to create something that could be printed on a light or dark shirt without having to alter the design and something that would look sharp printed in one color as to save on printing costs.
