This artwork was one of the first artworks we tried
on a t-shirt, shortly after the initial launch of the ZIZONE brand.
Many people loved the t-shirt and wanted to purchase it,
so we took many approaches to try and deliver the best shirt we could.
Pingo’s personality and love for catnips is fully portrayed using
only burgundy, making it a signature Pingo graphic.
The equally minimalistic grey and navy were chosen as the base color
of the shirt as they compliment the graphics of CATNIP.
While we used the burgundy as the background in the original artwork,
we decided to use burnt orange instead for a more vintage look,
and printed it as the foreground to make it more suitable
for day-to-day wear.
The new burnt orange blends perfectly with the simple navy color,
and the full-size print of Pingo further highlights the graphic.
We made small adjustments to various parts of the graphic
to make it look pixel perfect when printed, and opted
to use standard cut t-shirts,
making it perfect for any outfit in your closet.
After countless amounts of testing,
we opted to use digital printing
as it best shows the artwork’s vibrant colors
on heavyweight fabric, and lasts through multiple laundry cycles.
