PLACEMENT DESIGNING PLACEMENTS
I have recently been offered a great temporary opportunity designing, based in Wolverhampton a small company which a large client profile called International Insignia. Where they purely design placement prints for apparel. Featuring brands, museums, zoos and merlin entertainment attractions on mainly t-shirts and hoodies for the gift shops. I was responsible for the designing from start to finish through to the placement, colour, scale, print and logo.
This has been a great insight into different brands both large and small from all over the United Kingdom and I have been extremely privileged to design for them. Being a print designer my work mainly consists of AOP repeats, so working on something that is only placement was a bit different. However, anyone in this industry knows well enough, you need to gain as much experience as you can and this has been a great new challenge that I am very grateful for.
Hopefully later in the year I'll be able to show you some of my designs on finished garments, but for now let's see where the next adventure takes us next.
