Slapped Ham, a popular YouTuber, contacted me after talking with GhostToast about getting some t-shirts designed based on the content of his channel. Slapped Ham creates count-down videos that cover topics including food, nature, film, and science – even the paranormal.
%22Ouija%22 Shirt Design
For two of the designs, Slapped Ham wanted a couple of “spooky” designs to reflect the popularity of his paranormal countdown videos. I decided to go with a light-hearted sort of spooky. While the ouija board can be a dangerous tool, I decided to use it in this design.
%22Follow%22 Shirt Design
“Follow” is the second spooky design. I had the idea of the pig mascot leading a procession of shadows while doodling shadow people. In both the spooky designs, I wanted it to look like the pig had an idea of the dangers around him, but unaware that they’re just behind him.
%22Icons%22 Shirt Design
One of Slapped Hams thoughts for the shirts was creating icons that represent the various topics of his videos. This t-shirt focuses on that with its simple grid layout and clean custom icons.
%22Bacon Face%22 Shirt Design
This design focuses on the pig face. The custom icons are also featured here, though more a background detail as they are used as a fun pattern.
%22Splatter%22 Shirt Design
The final design is a more colorful piece that follows the design theme of many of Slapped Ham’s past YouTube banners. The custom icons are also incorporated here and create a sense of cohesion among the various designs.
