For the 2018-2019 season, the Moves Dance Company competitive dance team was putting on a show they called “Come See The Freaks.”  This performance was based on the musical film The Greatest Showman, and they wanted a t-shirt design created to reflect that.  The design was digitally printed on the shirts, so I had the freedom to design in as many colors and as much detail as I wanted.

Moves Dance was set on using imagery from the movie poster, so I obliged, editing the photo to add contrast and drama front and center, while fading away parts around the edges to help it blend into the shirt.  But the real highlight was the custom “Come See The Freaks” lettering, which was based on typography style from the movie, down to the texture and layered 3D effect.  Just like the movie, this t-shirt design was a real hit with the dancers.
