Mike Hayes of My T Shirt Printers reveals how he put his grey matter to the test when designing The Creative Brain for his shop

This design is from the Creative Range by My T Shirt Printers, a garment decoration business in Bude, Cornwall. The Creative Range is a sample line that the shop sells to its customers. 

Creative director Mike Hayes explains that he used vivid graphics and colour in The Creative Brain print so as to capture attention and lift it from being a ‘shop shirt’ to a ‘consumer-wanted item’.

“The aim was to have a solid screen print but with a smooth, soft hand-feel and bright, Pantone-matched colours to bring the print to life and show what screen printing can achieve,” explains Mike.
