Design Ideas for Custom Shorts

With a variety of options comes a variety of designs, and what better way to get your creative juices flowing than by offering a couple of angles to base your ideas around?

Floral Shorts

As timeless as the Hawaiian shirt, floral pattern shorts have a free and loose feel that lets you experiment with unique patterns and dazzling flora.

Create original patterns by choosing a color palette you love and pick an environment – garden variety, wildlife, jungle, close-up shots, etc.

Think in the lines of hot or cold colors, add some depth with shading or dark spots, or make uniform patterns that repeat around the waist.

Custom Shorts With Logo

Custom Logo Shorts

Create shorts with logos to represent your brand. An amazing logo design needs the perfect print location. Usually, the logo goes on the front of the leg, the low end of the hem, or the sides. You can put a primary logo on the front and a smaller rendition on the back.

Think of whether you want to keep your logo as the focal point or use it as an element in a more intricate design. Try repeating your logo in patterns, use a mascot or quote, or play with the colors around the logo to make it showier.

Patchwork Shorts

For the more artistically inclined, patchwork shorts are the new flannel, even when executed on high-quality polyester fabrics. 

Go with more toned-down colors that mix and match the piece, guiding the eyes through a patchwork journey – perfect for those niche Etsy store hand-made fashion staples.

Take your inspiration from Pinterest, or try your hand at practicing your graphic design skills using our conveniently crafted list of graphic design tips to place the right design in the right place.
