Retro '71

This week’s Retro 71 shirt concept is another design that celebrates the year in which the Vacation Kingdom opened its gates, 1971.

The shirt is classic 1970's retro. Using the original Magic Kingdom castle icon alongside the original resort logo, I opted for a funky, chunky font to set the year in. The display font is simplistic but reads “groovy” at the same time.
The design is a cost-effective two color design with some slight textured distressing. It would be printed in water-based ink with no underlay in order to make the ink look sun-faded from spending all day out in the parks.

Well that's it for this week’s post—have a great week. I'm off to work on my D23 painting. Speaking of paintings, I just sent out my painting to Burbank for The Haunted Mansion Group Art Show presented by The Parlour Gallery at Halloween Town. So if you're in the area, stop by the gallery on opening night, Saturday June 4th at 7pm. For you readers who aren't in the LA area, don't worry folks—I'll be sure to post a few pictures here at Designerland. Until next week then, see you soon!
