Grizzly bear logo tutorial: Texture
After creating a cool bear graphic you might want to jazz it up a bit with some cool texture. Designs tend to also pop a bit more with a worn look or some grit texture. I’ve used some simple speckled textures in this graphic design.
Font choice is also very important. Consider a chunky font or a slab serif. Something gritty or retro to enhance the overall design. Consequently giving a more cohesive look and appeal to the right audience.
Colour is another consideration. Yellow has a way of getting attention, while adding a darker colour compliments the yellow.
These types of graphics can be used on t-shirts, hats, stickers, posters mugs and you name it. Additionally they are super easy and fun to make. Consequently for those getting in to t-shirt designing this is a great source of art that can be made easily and quickly.
After creating the graphic it’s a good idea to mock it up for a presentation. Showcase your designs on t-shirts, mugs posters, stickers or whatever you want. Also there are some really great mockup sites available, some are free and some are just a few dollars. As a result you can easily showcase your talent.
