Fall fashion trends for 2020 you need to know – graphics and fonts edition.

GRAPHIC AND FONT TRENDS

You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. This season is all about looking put-together on your Zoom call while remaining comfy enough to lounge on your couch in your work from home ensemble. Follow any one of the trends below and get inspiration for your next t-shirt or fleece design.

 

 

Rainbows

Rainbows evoke joy, hope, and wonder, making them the perfect image for almost any type of apparel. Add text and choose your own color palette to make a unique design that anyone would be happy to wear.

 

 

Rainbow words

Add interest to text-based designs by making the letters a rainbow of colors. Change the mood of the shirt by refining your color palette for the letters.

 

 

Off register prints

Think outside the lines! Rooted in 60’s pop art, this look is a classic way to add interest to a design with blobs of color positioned off-alignment from the lines they were meant to fill in. 

 

 

Tiny text

Sometimes, less is more. Create a minimally aesthetic t-shirt design featuring tiny text.

 

 

Retro typography

Get groovy and throw it back to the 60’s and 70’s by designing a funky tee with retro fonts in psychedelic colors like reds, yellows and pinks.

 

 

Abstract drawings

Organic, abstract forms make for compelling t-shirt designs and can stand alone or be combined with text. Use a mixture of colorful and creative strokes and lines to make an expressive t-shirt sure to stand out.

 

 

Delicate florals

Flowers can stand for growth and beauty, or a fresh start. A delicate floral design can be the main focus of your t-shirt or used as extra elements in a typographic design.

 

 

Plastic bag vibes

The iconic white and red “Thank You” bag has been a point of inspiration for years. The familiar design is easy to transform into artwork for almost any message by using a white product as your base and repeating lines of red text.

 

 

Bold/inspirational statements

Say it bold and clear. Creating a simple t-shirt with a word or phrase that gets your point across can sometimes be all you need.

 

 

Geography designs

There are tons of creative ways to mark a geographic area on your design. Use a map, outline, or silhouette to make your mark.

 

 

Repeating text

Get your point across by repeating your message. Repeating text will create the desired impact, and result in a well-designed shirt at the same time.

 

 

Left aligned

Left aligned text is a great way to stylize your t-shirt design while keeping a minimal aesthetic. This technique works well with text-only designs, because it adds some intentionality to the text placement.

 

 

Animal portraits 

We’ve seen a new trend of large animal portraits on shirts this season. Designers create large, stylized portraits of dogs, cats, turtles, cows and more. This is a perfect option for any organization that works with animals or just animal lovers in general.

 

 

Mountains

Mountains can be symbolic of challenges, setting goals and achieving them, or simply being outside in nature. The beauty of mountains and the many ways they can be visually represented makes them a popular choice for apparel.

 

 

Artwork prints

Many artists are moving their creations off Instagram and onto shirts! They select work that’s been a fan-favorite on social media and translate that into a printable apparel design.

 

 

Pocket print designs

The “pocket” printing location is incredibly popular this year. Boutiques and companies are using small logos or designs and printing them on the front of their tees. Pocket prints are a great way to promote your message in a subtle, stylish way.

 

 

90’s vibes

Calling all 90’s babies! Pay homage to one of the best decades with neon colors, geometric shapes and MTV vibes.

 

 

Large back prints

Oversized prints on oversized products are all the rage. Screen printing your design in a large way is a great option for designs that are more intricate and detailed or designs that are meant to obtain that L.A. street grunge look.

 

 

Handwritten typography

Hand-drawn letterforms can have a range of different moods, so it can be funky, retro, bold, or delicate. The flexibility you have when you draw your own lettering makes it a great choice for almost any t-shirt you’re designing.
