School is now in session, so I’m sure you made that annual pilgrimage to the mall for new clothes at least once this summer. I bet you noticed all the distressed graphics out there. Distressed or vintage looking tees are usually hanging out on the racks each year, but this year they are back with a vengeance and not in the usual way.
Along with the old vintage sign or logo, I have been seeing a lot of distressed text, eroded edges, faded prints, blown out Xerox photos, and layering of distressed elements all together or over stripes. So, I am currently hard at work creating some new clipart that will be available on the website to help you create your own distressed designs. You can search the word “distressed” to see what clipart is already in the Design Lab, or just add a note that you want your design “distressed” and our artists will go to town making your shirt look like you’ve been wearing it for years.
