It's understanding a lifestyle shaped around skateboarding, surfing, and hip hop in the USA during the '80s and '90s, and nowadays it's everywhere. Street artist and designer Smithe is passionate about streetwear, something that's very evident from his 10 years as creative director of the brand Tony Delfino.

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

Look for references to define the creative direction of your brand, establish a concept and from there, choose a name and develop a logo.

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

Get started on the first sketches for each of the garments. Digitize the designs with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator then apply them to a mock-up to see how it looks and fine-tune the details.

Smithe gives you some helpful tips on finding suppliers to bring more expertise to your project and to help print, embroider, and even enhance your designs for each garment.

Finish up by looking at a simple way to photograph your collection to showcase the garments in a more professional way. To do this, do a product and lookbook photoshoot and then create a basic online store to market your new streetwear.

A course by Smithe

Teacher Plus
Designer

Smithe is a Mexican street artist, illustrator, and designer who has been honing his style and perfecting the narrative of his images for more than a decade, 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 started graffitiing for fun. Particularly drawn to the fine arts, Smithe has constantly reinvented his own self-taught and ever-evolving style and in recent years has dealt with many themes in his work, such as existentialism, the individuality of human beings, and the machine within.

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