What 'is' and what 'is not' creative tshirt design?
Interesting question hey!
What you might think is great t shirt design and what I might think is great t shirt design, might be completely different!
So how do we know then, what is 'hot' and what is 'not'?
As a designer, I have 'learned to adapt' and 'develop my
design skills' in all areas.
I went through different phases. I used to love very grunge and messy looking designs with lots of rough marks and scribbles, just like Van Gogh. Then I experimented with photos, collages and magazine clippings.

And then I loved the surrealistic style of Salvador Dali and that has influenced me tremendously.
What I have noticed is that no one designer has it all. Many designers that I know have their own unique style of designing and themes that they interpret.Each t shirt designer has a certain way of thinking and expressing those thoughts onto t shirts, design style playing a big part.
Design is about "interpreting an idea" into a way that others can enjoy and understand.
Sometimes your design style might not be appealing to others, it doesn't mean that its not good enough, it only speaks a different language to a different audience.
So when you design a t shirt, try think of the viewers that would 'like your t shirts.'
