My creative time designing images for T-shirts to be sold on Amazon has now shifted me to working with themes. In the Merch by Amazon Facebook groups people often mention to work with themes, but I had not followed that system before now.
Now that I’m allowed to upload 10 designs each day, which I often do not manage, I have found that designing in themes has its advantage. Admittedly having the opportunity to add 10 new designs each day until I have reached 500 max designs is not easy time-wise.
I will share my way of working with layered files in Photo shop while working in theme designs.
Creating layered files with a theme in mind is very handy. All I need to do is change the animal inside the image .
Many designers create brand names related to a theme, but I have only done that in my computer to be more organized. Making tables in Word first under my 4 main Brand names, and then creating separated tables into themes has worked so far.
I created designs that fall under sport & animals – Trendy fun designs but they do not come up when I type in the words “by Nadine May” …..so I must look again at my descriptions and repeat the same keywords.
I’ve learned a great deal by writing this blog about working with Themes and now use better keywords, so I hope this post was helpful to other designers.
Thanks for reading my post
