…but should you? 


Sometimes, a busy shirt can be distracting, even hideous. That are many occasions where a simple design is the catchiest. Some heavy metal bands will disagree. Bands like Iron Maiden tend to have very busy shirts with lots going on. It works for their niche fanbase, but they are very much the acceptation and not the rule.


Generally, you’re much better off with a simple design. Let’s take a look at some of the most iconic t-shirt designs on the planet. You have Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album cover, a simple prism on a black background. I Heart New York is two colors on a white shirt with a heart. In wrestling, the nWo and Austin 3:16 shirts are still popular 20 years later with white text on a black background. 


David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane t-shirt just features Bowie’s painted face. The Rolling Stones are synonymous with a tongue and red lips, while Rocky Horror Fans spirt t-shirts with just red lips and teeth. The point is, these designs are simple, clean, and memorable. That’s why they’re iconic. That’s why they stand the test of time. 


Bells and whistles does nota  good t-shirt make. No matter where you go with your design, you have to understand your audience. Know how they think and what they will respond to. Take that and try to condense it down into a simple, straightforward design that’s easy to digest.
