For this design I want to use an old sailing ship as the main design element. I've been looking at old cigar boxes and naval tatoo motifs.
The ship should be a side view with lots of sails billowing in the wind (attachment called cigar label clipper). There can be some naval imagery flanking the ship (see clipper doc, bottom image) and possible incorporate our logo maybe on a small flag on the ship?
I would like it to say have our name, "skylark & king" written underneath the ship in a font that looks like rope or a naval font.
I would like to print on navy american apparel bb401 shirts.
I would like to use 1 color (white) and have the image look a little faded or antiqued* (Is this something the designer does or is this a screenprinting technique) Also, I plan to print the image with water based ink.
maybe include the text "new york city" under skylark & king
Please use some creative license. Overall I want it to look classic/simple/timeless like an old maritime design. take a look at the designs at ace hotel online shop for more insight http://shop.acehotel.com/clothes/
the file called bird sticker is our logo.
The cigar label is the closest ship and layout to what I am interested in. The sailing shirt (Boat) is nice too, i like the worn or antiqued quality in the image and text. I like the printmaking quality of the designs.
