How dspolish started their t-shirt journey


Combining an athletes love for their sport and pride in the number they wear on their jersey, we are looking to create a line of trendy graphics for imprint on t-shirts.

Brand name

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are looking to bring a bit of edginess to these designs similar to the affliction clothing and the whole tattoo art/graphics "trend" you see going on these days. However, we want two things to be the main focus of the design, the sport & the number.
We are not looking to copy the styles mentioned above, just emulate them.

We want the designs to be either one color OR a two color scheme that we can coordinate by team colors on a white shirt. There must also be a place within the design to drop in a number so as to be able to customize either a single or double digit number.

We will need either the numbers 0-9 customized by you or the font style supplied along with the graphic.

We are looking for a graphic for each of the following sports:
- Baseball
- Football (AMERICAN)
- Basketball
- Ice HockeyPick one to focus on. If you are chosen the winner, we will contract you out to design the other three and most likely more sports to follow.

Try to think of an edgy looking football that stands prominently in front of trendy graphics and either inside the football or just to it's exterior, an "open" area where a number can be placed. You can place the sport item on the left or right chest area, etc...
