Captain Teemo on…a t-shirt?

Background

For my first design assignment I choose myself fI decided on “Create a T-Shirt” which is worth 2 and a half stars. When I first looked at this page on the Design Assignment Bank I saw the example t-shirt featured an animated character so this inspired me to use an animated character that I greatly enjoy. League of Legends has been one of my favorite games since I started playing it in 2012 and one of my favorite characters to play as is Teemo. He is one of the most iconic characters in the game so it was only fitting he got his own t-shirt. I also had to think about what I wanted to add to the t-shirt other than his picture. I then had a lightbulb go off in my head and decided a jersey would be perfect considering it is for a video game character. I decided to put Teemo’s picture on the front so it would be visible then put “CAPTAIN TEEMO” at the top on the back of the shirt and then since Teemo was one of the original 20 characters released in the alpha of the game back in 2009 I decided to put 20 has his number. I also decided to leave the shirt white since Teemo is pretty colorful and I didn’t want to make the shirt too cluttered.

Process

My first step in my creative process is to find a t-shirt template to add my design too. For this I searched “t shirt template” on Google Images and decided on the first picture since it offered both a front and back.

Next I clicked on the image then right clicked and saved the image to my computer. I also followed these same 2 steps for the Teemo picture I will be using.

I then opened up Microsoft PowerPoint clicked “insert” at the top left hand side of my computer then scrolled down to “photo” then selected “picture from file” and chose the 2 pictures.

Now that my images are added into PowerPoint I can change the size of the Teemo image and position on the shirt to how I like it by moving the dots on the edges of the square to shrink then just clicking the center of the image to move it.

Now that I am happy with the front of the shirt I must work on the back. For this I am going to make it similar to a jersey style. To add text I clicked “Insert” then “text box” then clicked on where I wanted the text to be. At the top of the shirt I wrote “Captain Teemo” in bold, size 20, calibri font and and then “20” in size 120, calibri font. I clicked on the text boxes and moved them around until I was happy with the positioning.

My Creation

So here is my final t-shirt design featuring Teemo from League of Legends. This would be good for anyone who is a fan of League of Legends and more specifically likes to play this character a lot.
