A couple of my friends and I didn't really like what our class chose for our senior shirt and what not, so we thought, "Hey, why not make our own design for it!?" As of the moment this is a very basic idea that only one of those friends and I have been working out.

As of the moment, the background is my personal preference and one of my friends does like, but thinks there could be improvement.


What I want help with most is text.
What should I do with it!?



tl;dr - What can I do to improve this, esp. the text part?


Will update this post with possible changes and things to try, mostly so I do not forget them.

TO DO/TRY:

  1. TEXT
    TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
  2. round out the vignette more
  3. perfect background
  4. incorporate mascot

And I'll see what I can do about the mascot.

Doesn't looks good for a T-Shirt at all, to be honest with you, imagine that on a shirt. Atm the blaze for gfx design T-shirts is typography look up some tuts on that.

Imagine it on a shirt... what the hell do you think I've been doing?

It would look very nice on a black shirt, unless you are too stupid to realize that the black background is just there to show the picture properly. It's not gonna be there in the final product. I'm not gonna have a white t-shirt with a big black box in the middle of it.

On a black t-shirt it looks exactly how I think it should look. And typography is the blaze eh? IDC, I'm doing this for what my friends and I want, not what is "the blaze".

We like this, but think it could use improvements on it. Minor improvements, not completely redesigning the whole thing.

So either help improve the text part or GTFO.

And I've not seen much good text stuff from you, you always leave your sigs without text...

hmmm maybe try 2D text with a drop shadow directly behind it (not offset at all)?

might just be me, but I don't like the bevel that much.

When did I ever say I was good with typography? Also, I recommend getting C4D R12 if you want to do 3D text. Did you make the fractal in the back?

I made everything, except for the font, that's freeware and legal for use.

@Nameless, I would but there isn't a drop shadow feature in PSE8, I had to improvise it myself.
The "bevel" is actually a 2nd copy of the text that is supposed to be the shadow.

Monkeyed with the design some more, came up with this:




We like it a lot better, but still feel there could be some minor improvements, just not sure what.

I was thinking that maybe you could shape the background like an eagle (or whatever animal that is XD).

Something like this? Just an example, but you get the idea:
