    Nice work, Chris. I like how you customized the font’s edges and the tail of the K. Really cool shirt!

  2. Lexi says:

    Nice, I love vintage anything! I love those classic logo fonts but can’t seem to find the right one for me, this one’s rather easy to do. Would love to watch the tutorial as well, hope you make one :D

    this might be a dumb question but how do you make text editable (without tracing it…) When i try to use the direct selection tool it selects the whole thing without anchor points…i am trying to get my head around illustrator but i just find myself going back to photoshop all too often

  4. Thank you, I am so glad i read this blog.

    lovely design, wondering why not you sell some -shirts via this website

  6. One of my favorite tutorials from you, Chris! Awesome job as usual! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! :)

  7. Very nice. Great attention to details as always.

  8. G says:

    Hi Chris, please can you make your links open in a new window?thanks

  11. Justin says:

    Very keen on your customization of typefaces. This is a very useful tutorial, thank you!

  12. Great design and the effect is perfect.
    I like the fact you kept it in illustrator ( not exported to photoshop for texture) so you still have a nice sharp scalable vector. Great work!

  13. Great one Chris. Thanks!

    Great way to design a nice t-shirt.
    what about more co-lure full designs?

  15. As usual, you killed it with this one Chris! Very easy to follow along with, and the end results are just amazing.

    Any chance of a tutorial showing us how to apply our logos/design to a t-shirt, as you did at the end of this post?
