So Cal Vibes
Design created for an apparel company in San Diego. This company produces different ink colors for each shirt color. I comped up over a dozen color schemes to find the best to fit the theme of the design.
Custom palm illustration and hand drawn script
This design was inspired by some neon lettering I had seen recently. It is too modern and cool to only see the cutting room floor.

Shirts were printed on multiple shirt colors, colors needed to be identified that would work across many colors.
Design was produced on shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts.
With the race taking place at night, it was important to convey this aspect in the design.
Joshua Tree features desert rocks, desert flowers, and incredible night star fields. There were a lot of options to explore.
Drawing the landscape was easiest, so it was first. A compilation of a few horizon lines were mashed together.
To make the star fields, I first found and scanned images of star fields. Then used vectorized watercolor shapes and built them into a color wash. Finally combine the stars and color wash, and halftone.
It was important for the graphic colors to work on a handful of colors. The colors also were picked to have the stars stand out, on both dark and light.

1. landscape horizon line circle. 2. The secondary color screen was a gradient up from the horizon line. Type was also in this color.
I found star fields images that would fit within the shape. The white of the stars would be screened last.

After sketching the dark and middle tones, I turned the middle tones into lines emulating the rocks, and the filled the low tones.
