Retro '71

Welcome back to another Retro '71 shirt concept. This weeks design was to be showcased later on down the road but after some twitter activity I decided to go a head and release it.

The shirt design takes artwork created for a tie-in add from Nestle Quik sponsoring both the newly opened Walt Disney World Resort and the world premiere of Disney's Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

The illustration montage is simply stunning and I knew would look brilliant on a shirt. The bright "groovy" color palette was inspired by a photo montage from an early Walt Disney World Resort souvenir booklet. I weighted the illustration with the retro Walt Disney World logo a la waving Florida banner. Finishing the design out is some new created (by yours truly) distressed textures.

Well that does it for this installment of our Retro '71. Lots of fun an interesting things in the works so I'm not sure if next week we will be getting to a new case study...but look forward to some new Kuler palettes and the next Retro '71 shirt...which will have you seeing spots or should I say dots. Thanks for stopping by and have a good week.
