T-Shirt Design Trend - Comic Pop

June 3, 2016

This tongue in cheek T-Shirt print trend will spark your creativity and is sure to capture attention with it’s quirky sense of humour. Cartoon and comic characters invade graphics adding a playful, sometimes facetious twist. Photographic prints are corrupted with comic elements, type is cartoonified and designs explode in a riot of primary and secondary colors.

KEY DETAILS: Vector and Bitmap Imagery Combine, 90s-style graphics, Collage and Distorted Comic Characters, Hijacked Graphics, Silly Messages, Random Objects, Reworked Pop Art Elements, Bold and Expressive color, Conversational Repeat Patterns, Comic Patch’s, Humurous Content, Speech Bubbles, Comic Book Typography.

Classic Pop Art elements are reworked and reimagined. Familiar mass culture imagery from advertising to other banal objects are manipulated into sensational and bold color combinations. Designs feature half tone dots, oversized stylised Pop Art graphics, comic book design elements and Pop Art typography.


Taking a cue from characters from classic comics to create playful & vibrant prints. Inspiration comes from pretty much anything from mashed up Marvel comics to weird and wonderful sci-fi comics and modern pop culture characters.


Experimenting with ordinary everyday edible food items to create quirky and amusing designs. It’s all about trying something new and not taking things too seriously.


Scary zombie like Pop Art creatures or comic horror collages come to life in a bold mashup of clashing colors and gruesome imagery.


Combining familiar iconic comic book characters with kaleidoscopic Pop Art elements. Blending elements from areas as diverse as Pop Art, comic books, graffiti, collage, photorealism, sign-writing and advertising.

  • Just wanted to say thank you to Greg and the team at Download T-Shirt Designs & Studio 1 for the incredible artwork you have produced for me over the last 9 years. You have consistently amazed me with your creative yet commercial designs and have been instrumental in helping us build our clothing business and go from strength to strength. You are the only team I trust when it comes to t-shirt designs.

  • I have been working with Studio1 & DTD now for nearly 10 years. I use DTD for instant designs plus I use Studio1 because I know that my design jobs will be completed efficiently, without question and with high quality results. Studio1 offers the highest level of experience, not only from my design expectation but thru to my production execution. I would highly recommend Studio1 if you are looking for a design service that will take your business to the next level.

  • We are a leading Australian surfwear retailer. We have an in-house design team that is struggling to keep up with the demand, so now that we have found you guys it's really helping with our work load. Having a balance between our design studio & your website full of quality T-Shirt designs that are ready to go is the perfect solution for us.

  • Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the last batch of designs that I purchased from your site have been selling extremely well. Sales are up by 300% on my previous batch that another team designed for me.

  • Premiere had previously only used in house design teams, and I found that having a balance between in house design and an outside resource such as Studio 1’s website (Downloadt-shirtdesigns.com) is a breath of fresh air. Greg and the team are well versed at understanding my objectives, however with their knowledge of fashion and ability to forecast trends, the results are normally above and beyond initial expectations.

  • We’ve been consistently using Studio-1 for graphics over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. Nothing is ever too difficult, too much of a problem for their team. The designs – whether bought from their existing designs on DownloadT-ShirtDesigns.com or briefed in for new art – are always on trend and of the highest calibre. And always with quick turn around too.

  • Nearly 12 years ago I found Studio1. One of my first presentations to major retailers in Australia and New Zealand with Studio1′s artwork had the immediate impact that was needed to get the buyers to sign off on the orders. From that time all those years ago to this day Studio 1 is the only graphic design company we use. I could not recommend Studio 1 anymore highly, not only are Greg and his team incredibly talented but to top it all off they are a great company to work with, nothings too hard, always willing to listen and most importantly always coming up with the goods.
