Organizing the portfolio : Hangtags
I've been spending some time lately working on gathering and shooting past design projects for my portfolio. It's in need of an update and I think I might be in need of some more projects to occupy my time during the slow months. Yesterday I shot hangtags and labels that I designed during my time working at Fossil. I remember these being some of my favorite projects to work on because we were able to run wild with materials, processes, and techniques - a designer's dream! Hangtags created for various denim fits. Materials used : T-shirt fabric, felt, canvas.Type was embroidered and printed. Handbag hangtags designed & illustrated. The tag on the left is embossed leather. Left : Hangtag for winter down-filled jackets. Canvas was the material used - artwork was printed onto canvas & the bottom canvas was also tea-stained. Right: Extra button hangtag. Artwork was printed onto vellum and sides were embroidered to create an envelope to hold the extra button for each garment. These hangtags were created to go along with the different fitting pants in store. Printed canvas and a light tea stain. Top: Hangtag created for garment dyed items. Canvas was printed and embroidered. Bottom: Extra button hangtag. Artwork was printed onto vellum and sides were embroidered to create an envelope to hold the extra button for each garment.
