  • Incorporate hand-drawn effects into computer-based designs
  • Choose Pantone colors to specify screen printing ink colors
  • Size a t-shirt graphic to the correct resolution and dimensions
  • Prepare designs to be printed with sublimation and direct-to-garment methods
  • Refine graphic designs by moving seamlessly from hand-sketching to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop

Improving your t-shirt design skills is one of the most rewarding investments that you can make in your design career.

In this workshop we will go over the entire process of creating a
t-shirt design, from finding ideas all the way to sending your designs
out to be printed.

We will send out the design to 3 different printers. At the end, those shirts will be unboxed so you can see exactly how they came back from the printer (there will be a few unexpected surprises you can learn from!)

In this course we’ll cover:

  • How to find and apply inspiration
  • The various computer tools and traditional tools you will need to create t-shirt designs.
  • How
    to move seamlessly between Photoshop, Illustrator, and pencil &
    paper so your designs come out as good or better than you had initially
    imagined
  • Type layout using Adobe Typekit fonts
  • How to create your own custom Photoshop brushes to quickly add color and texture to your designs
  • How to incorporate hand-drawn effects into a computer-based design
  • How to make sure your graphic is screen printed with the exact ink colors, sizing, and placement that you want
  • Printing with sublimation and DTG (direct-to-garment) methods
  • Avoiding common mistakes so your t-shirts come back printed exactly as designed

As a bonus you will also receive:

  • The Photoshop watercolor brushes made in the workshop
  • All 3 colorways of the finished “South Shore” design created (Photoshop format)
  •  2 bonus lectures showing methods to create “index” and “halftone” screen printing color separations in Photoshop and Illustrator without the need for any extra software
  • Downloadable files for the two color separation methods demonstrated in the workshop

Who this course is for:

  • This course is meant for anyone who wants to improve their t-shirt designs, using hand-drawn techniques, as well as Photoshop and Illustrator. The software instruction is taught at an intermediate level. Students should already have familiarity with using Photoshop and Illustrator. If you understand layers, tools, and how to draw objects in Photoshop and Illustrator, then this should be enough for you to follow the computer sections of this class. Please note that the two lectures on color separations are more advanced software instruction. But these lectures can be considered optional, and not necessary for all students.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
