Felsen T-Shirt Label
year of making
The project is about my own T-Shirt label which runs under the name of Felsen. The Story behind this is quite simpel and yet well connected with myself. "Felsen" was a nickname my older sisters gave me when I was a child. Making short things short - they still call me like this from time to time. During the search for a suitable name my sister called me asking " Whats up Felsen?" Boom decided - quite different approach to my normal, very thought-heavy research phases. I stuck with my gut feeling and I think the result turned out quite well.
The online shop focusses alot on the fact, that the people can customize their shirts. They can pick the colour and the face of the felsen mascot, creating the combination they like most. Since this is only the basic version the choosable parts are quite limited and will increase with the shop growing. In addition, the Logo itself works as an generative trademark in both print and web.
