2009, the year of

Big Type T's


Zombies


Heavy Plastisol All-Over Prints


Triangles


In 2010, I'm hoping for Ice Cream, colour fades, discharge (no feel) prints, and longer shirts (AA Summer T)

Are you a designer that is a trend setter or follower?

What trends are you hoping for in 2010?

    I hope the trend is for people to stop buying knockoff shirts or inspired shirts!
  • Matt Borchert

    plain white tees for life.
  • Integral

    1 color designs
    Black on Black, Black on charcoal etc..
    minimal stuff, like a giant square or something plain jane.
  • dobi

    less people ripping off mumford due to them getting carpal tunnel, more nicolo rips.

    I printed



    with high density clear gel for Woodward West with a back print and pocket print and I think they are some of the coolest simplest things we have ever made. Subtle, sharp clean look. Black on black is also a good look

    I don't know about you, but the all over prints like xtreme couture that you posted use discharge ink. Maybe there's some, but from all the ones I've seen had discharge. I love using discharge ink on my shirts.
  • Geoff May

    I think penises will be the new zombies.

    Go into any place that sells UFC or Fight Clothing. Or any GeneX, the print weighs more than the garment

    I hope they are... genitalia in general should be more accepted on clothing in today's society.
  • MSTR_CTRL

    More people on Emptees that can type in english and don't excessively use the word "friend".

    Ohhhhh wait, I was thinking social trends.

    I'm hoping it will be the year of simple one/two color black and white designs. Like old school band shirts and litho prints.

  • I AM SCUMBAG

    I'm sticking with mutants.
  • edword

    boners
  • dovemans

    the new trend is going to be bowties.

    and of course Prints on Bowties!

    I hope for more graphic shirts.

    In 2010 I think the crazy color tees will be falling off trend and will go back to simple designs for brands & bands.

    Basic Text Tees will now be more Intricate text tees and I feel a lot of artists will get really into typography.

    Can't wait to see where it goes :)

    Trust me I'm a huge fan of mma and all the stuff like that and I haven't seen anything that heavy....I never heard of geneX so maybe them. Even Tapout uses discharge ink on most of their all over prints.
  • Sam Montana

    I'm hoping on more awesome black linework on a white shirt designs. Like Craig Robson does. (Not saying: RIP ROBSON!! lol)

    Yup, intricate typography. Seems like alot of artists on here have taken it upon themselves to learn about good type.

    no jab, just saying,

    Yea Astronauts were a HUGE trend in 2009 from Pharell's Billionaire Boys Club to a bunch of Indie Companies, including mine. Hmm what will be next? Scuba divers? Miners? Pilots?

    not really triangles/pyramids are among the most overused shapes in tee design

    I don't think the space/astronaut trend has run out of steam yet...they'll be plenty more prints on 2010
  • ZaneGun08

    Burnout guys shirts? Hope not
  • Betraydan

    triangles will prevail ! its timeless.
  • Random

    ^^They did not try to trademark a triangle!
    FAIL
  • zerobriant
