T Shirt Design Critique

#1 Postby nolamaddog » Thu Mar 08, 2018 3:07 pm

Hey guys,

First time poster here, hope this is the correct place. Lived in New Orleans my entire life and I'm working a t-shirt design for the 2005 Hurricane Season. I'm attaching what I have so far, please feel free to critique it. Not really concerned with the spaghetti model paths, pretty hard to get that exact but just in general. Would you wear something like this if I sold them on amazon, etc?

Thanks,

Phil

Welcome to the forum. One thing I notice is that all of your hurricanes are spinning the wrong direction. Northern Hemisphere storms spin counter-clockwise. Also, if you're depicting U.S. landfalls, then the intensities on the left side of the graphic should match the landfall intensity on the U.S. coast rather than peak intensity days prior.

Thanks for the tips. I'll def. change the spinning.

looks very dated imo
definitely needs to look more stylish
try looking at some graphic tees for inspiration to get the young crowd on board, since young people are a large market for aparrel

also your design looks very crammed. should be simplified.
