Awesome Merchandise meets Anastasia Tasou

Illustrator Anastasia Tasou popped into Awesome HQ to see where her products come to life and get stuck in screen printing her very own custom tea towels. We sat down and discussed how she got started, her most popular pieces of merch and got her tips for anyone wanting to do it themselves.

 

Watch the full interview below.

Anastasia’s top 3 tips for creating merch

1) Don’t just throw your designs on anything

Think carefully about what merch you’re choosing. Think about  what design you want to put on it and how those things relate to each other.

2) Think about your audience

Think about what your fans and audience want. Is there anything that they’ve requested in the past? Make sure that you’re using something that fits with your brand and that it’s something that works well for you as merch.

3) Design with the merch in mind

Make sure that you utilise the merch item for what it is. For example with the metallic badges, make sure that you use the metallic part of the badge. Really think about what the merch is made out of and how that can work with your drawing.  

Feeling inspired? We’ve over 650 products for you to put your design on.
