Streetwear is more than a fashion statement, it’s a lifestyle that was born out of skate, surf, and hip hop in the United States between the 80s and 90s, and today it’s everywhere. Smithe, an urban artist and designer, is passionate about streetwear culture and has been leading the creative direction of Tony Delfino for 10 years.

In this course, learn how to create a streetwear brand from scratch, starting with the concept to how to market it on an online store.

Start by getting to know Smithe, who tells you about his career as an art director for fashion brands and his main influences.

Then, look for references to define the creative direction of your brand, define a concept, and from there, create the name and a logo.

Create a mood board on Adobe Illustrator to define the style you are looking for, and then choose the materials and garments of your first collection; Smithe works on the design of a shirt, a sweatshirt, a hoodie, patches, and stickers.

Design the first sketches for each garment. Digitize the designs with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and apply them to a mockup to visualize and fine-tune some details.

Smithe gives you useful tips to find suppliers that bring experience to your project and help you print, embroider, and even improve your designs for each garment.

Finally, see how to photograph your collection with simple resources to show the garments in a professional manner. To do this, do a product photoshoot and lookbook, and create a simple online store to market your new streetwear brand.

Create a streetwear brand step by step, starting with the name and ending with the design of a collection of five items.

Designer

Smithe is a Mexican urban artist, illustrator, and designer who has spent more than a decade working on his style and perfecting the narrative of his images, alongside his artistic and creative work for the fashion brand Tony Delfino.

Influenced by Japanese anime, the graphic style of the 50s, and science fiction movies, at the age of 13, he began painting graffiti just for fun and as a hobby. Self-taught, evolving, and attracted by the fine arts, Smithe has constantly reinvented his own style and in recent years, has covered many areas in his work such as existentialism, the individuality of the human being, and the machine inside.

Smithe has exhibited his work in galleries in Mexico, the United States, Germany, and England. His murals can be seen in those same countries as well as Spain and Belgium.
