Principles of Merch Design

Principles of Merch Design (June 5, 2023)
Store-branded clothing is the concert tee of your bookstore. Once it walks out the door, it is free marketing, signaling through the wearer's swagger that your store is lit in all the ways. In a sea of business-branded t-shirts, it can be challenging to keep designs fresh, so we're bringing in the experts. In this session, we will explore the principles of effective t-shirt design, including color theory, typography, composition, and branding and you will learn how to create designs that capture your bookstore's unique style and voice. This session is great for marketing managers, directors, and coordinators. It is accessible to all who attend and want to learn how to leverage the power of t-shirts to promote their brand and engage their customers.
