An acquaintance ordered a “Keep Calm and blablabla…” tshirt. Well, we all know the hype in those and I should say I did dig some of them too.
But when it came to making something that someone out there already made, I was hesitant. Still, though, should I come up with the *idea* besides the design -lettering and illustration- and the application? In some cases, yes, I do. But every now and then, I take a popular and/or retro idea and add a twist to it, so it ends up being perfectly personal.
With this one, I thought, “Ok, I make tshirts, I might as well put a saying to this!” so that’s how I came up with that. She loved it, thankfully, which puts a smile on my face as well.
