GCD: The Sunshine Dreamers [Ephemera]

With musical influences like the Beatles, Beach Boys, Flaming Lips (represent Okie’s!), Dr. Dog, and Natural Milk Hotel, the Sunshine Dreamers needed a visual brand that would display their rock/indie style and happy go lucky tunes. The simple, psychedelic, sunflowers remind us of simpler days “Where we wished time would just float away.”

With a new album delivered fresh from the farm, the Sunshine Dreamer’s we’re ready to showcase their new musical direction with a revived design look. Ultimately this project had two objectives; 1. Create t-shirt and matching sticker designs that speak to the Sunshine Dreamers musical flavor and 2. Make cool unisex prints that any band groupie would want to take home. We started by printing on up-cycled T’s and created a consistent circular pattern that was then carried throughout each piece.

Working one-on-one with our local screen printer (Thanks Justin) we we’re able to deliver the best possible prints with t-shirts of multiple sizes and colors. After much debate we choose a white ink base for the darker shirts knowing the array of background colors we had to work with. Unlike usual screen prints where the ink sets on top of the shirt we used a process that is similar to bleaching out the design; thus, allowing the ink to literally soak into and become part of the t-shirts.
