EPICxH2O Lake Swan 2010 Camp | T-Shirt Design

Development Process

  • Lead Designer: Kristan Castro
  • Assistant Designer: Jeffrey Manalansan

..::..::..::..::..::..

Due to upcoming deadlines to other projects I wasn’t able to work on this project in the time needed for this design to be complete. Therefore, I had to take an “adviser” role in this design instead. While I was working on a separate project, Kristan Castro was designing this project. Via chat; We were able to communicate which made it possible to relay changes to the design despite being in different locations at the time.

What’s shown here is the process from the initial design that Kristan first created, each individual change that made using advice given from myself, and finally the final design that printed on the T-Shirts.

  • Brainstorming

Prior to this, I already had a design created specially for the EPIC Youth Ministry and we were ready to start the printing process. There was a problem, and changes needed to be made to also include the H20 Ministry in the same design. That wasn’t possible, so a new design needed to made from scratch.

We needed a quick, simple, and easy design to create in just a few days. While brainstorming, we finally decided on using a ” Jabbawockeez ” inspired design.

  • The Process

Step 1: Initial Design. 

Step 2: Replacing the crosses with ” Christ Cares Alliance Church “

Step 3: Adding ” Extremely Powerful In Christ ” and ” His 2 Own ” to clarify the meaning of ” EPIC ” and ” H20 “

Step 4: Using bars to add a ” RUN DMC ” flavor and a better border to the design 

Step 5: Better spacing in the bars and changing ” CCAC ” back to ” Christ Care Alliance Church “

Step 6: And finally adding the Grunge effect to the bars to match the font.

 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

    =================================================

    - BACKGROUND HISTORY -

    For you tumblr. followers you probably already know a little info about why I decided to do this but I’ll go deeper into detail. Basically the reason why I decided to put together a mixtape was because I needed to brush up on my Mixtape Cover skills. I haven’t created one in a while and felt that it was time to keep it fresh and I needed to practice. But since this was going to be just a “Mock-Up” mixtape cover with no use other than “just another portfolio piece”, I felt it needed to be more than that. During this time I brainstormed different scenarios on all the possible ways I can prevent that from happening. I decided on the consensus choice of actually putting together a mixtape.

    Now that I decided on actually together an actual mixtape, all that was needed was the spark and inspiration. I couldn’t do an old school type mixtape [Think Cassette Tape type mixtapes or Club DJ mixes) or mixtapes like B3arfruit’s Fruit Cocktail because I lack the skill of mixing. I’m also not a musician, so that was an instant idea scratch. But then I didn’t want a “usual”  mixtape so those ideas wouldve been thrown out anyway.

    So how did I come up with the idea of an Instrumental mixtape? Well….while working on a design project, I noticed that every time I play music in the background, I rarely listen to the vocals. About 90 Percent of the time while I’m working, the vocals in a song (aside from hooks and choruses) registers as just another instrument in my mind. Right then and there I knew exactly that I was going to do an instrumental mixtape. Not only is it rare to see an Instrumental mixtape, it would benefit me (personal use) also.

    *Yes this mixtape is supposed to Non-beneficial to me. Non-Beneficial, Defined as in Financially Beneficial. Personal Beneficial as in (myself) using this mixtape/playlist as background music as I work on my art.* 

    Creating the tracklist for the mixtape was harder than I expected because it was just instrumentals. It had to be more than just a mix, it had to be a playlist and it had to flow correctly. I wanted the playlist to be built like an album; after listening to Kanye’s new album numerous times, I knew where the bar and expectations had to be set. I wanted a diverse set of instrumentals; some ranging from upbeat to slow, some classically inspired, some modern, some recognizable & predictable, some rare…..and yes there are definitely rare hard-to-find instrumentals on this mixtape and you will be surprised.

    Basically to sum it all up, I just wanted to share the inspiration for myself in creating this mixtape and just having an answer to the simple question of Why(?). Honestly I’m not expecting this to go viral, I’m not asking anyone to download it or even take the mixtape seriously. This was just preparation for myself for future possible situations I may stumble upon. But of course it up for download and you the option to download or not. If you do, I do ask that you do not give me credit for any of the instrumentals used; always refrain from giving improper credit. But again its there for your use, if you want spread it, lay vocals down, or simply just listen; feel free……it’s basically a Resource file for musicians.

    Do I plan on continuing with a Chapter 2? Definitely, I will always need to perfect my craft in art. And honestly if you want to suggest or request instrumentals go ahead and send them to me.

    What are your suggestions for the next Chapters?

    Flight 1094 | Logo Design
Logo design based on Aviation.
Aviation - The design, development, production, operation, and use of aircraft, especially heavier-than-air aircraft. [ via http://dictionary.reference.com/ ] 
The main body of the Art was influenced and inspired by an eyesight perspective view of the front of an Airplane; as seen by the Propeller in the center and the wings on the side. The propeller is enclosed on the left and right sides by &#8220;10&#8221; and &#8220;94&#8221; which creates/symbolizes the body and inner wing portions of the airplane.

Back when I visited Chicago as a kid, I received these Pins in shape of wings from American Airlines. These pins were the main inspiration for the way I designed the wings in this logo design.

To finish the design, I included &#8220;Flight&#8221; to symbolize an Aircraft on it&#8217;s orbital path around an object. In this case, I had a Space Shuttle orbiting the moon or a Satellite orbiting the Earth in mind.

    JEFF3XI | 20X1SERIES

    Made right before the year 2010 ended this series was an interpretation of the “evolution” of my craft. Each piece presents either a skill, style ,or new area of Art I wish to develop or experiment with in the future; Although this was titled ” 2011 ” this is not limited to just the year 2011, the over the span of the next few years.

    ..::..::..::..::..::..

    The first piece of my 20XI (2011) series is a sleek type graphic design. In the year 2010 my main style of graphic design/art was all about the grungy spray paint/paint splatter style that is widely seen in designs today. I have worked with this style of design before but I never really took the time to master it. In the year 2011 I would like to add this style to my arsenal of Graphic Design/Art.

    ..::..::..::..::..::..

    This second piece is a symbolization of my skills as an illustrator, painter, and my techniques in drawing. My illustration skills such as those in vector/line art and cartoon drawings are not good at all. This year I would like to learn how to draw line art to be able to create my own vector artwork for use in my graphic designs. The monkey in the corner of the piece symbolizes this along with my painting skills as well. Most of my vector artwork comes from vector packs from other artists on the internet and my painting is based on digital painting in Photoshop and Corel Painter. I would like to break free of the digital platform and advance into real life painting.

    As for the centerpiece charcoal drawing goes; my drawing skills are not bad but they are also not great. My High School art classes in all 4 years were all about drawing. But those were the years when I actually took the time to draw with an actual pencil; I would to continue to work on my craft of drawing this year. If you notice in the piece, the charcoal drawing is not 100% blended into the paper texture, this is to symbolize my drawing skills as a work in progress.

    [tumblr would not upload the .png format of this piece so it will be in a lower quality (.jpeg) than the others]

    ..::..::..::..::..::..

    Third piece. This piece has a a shoe with my 20XI symbol on it. This to symbolize Custom Shoe Designs. I have had my designs/artwork featured on the internet as regular image files, T-Shirts,Print Posters, and Canvas Panels. Custom shoe design is something I’ve wanted to do for the longest time now. Will 2011 be the year I join the Custom Shoe Design Community? We’ll See.

    By the way, the quote used in the piece is from Jacob Patterson. He is famous for being a custom shoe designer and where I get some of my inspiration from. Check him out on YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, and tumblr.

    ..::..::..::..::..::..

    Fourth piece; This piece is pretty much self explanatory. So far I have only been able to have my presence on the internet through sites like MySpace, Facebook, and tumblr. I’m hoping to learn how to create and code websites; In doing so, I hope to get my own website up as soon as get educated on the topic.
