    The first piece of advice I would give for a piece like this is, ''Talk to your printer.''
    Especially for a white on black with spot color that includes a gradient. And the size limitations you may encounter.

    Everything else is questions.
    What is this for? Doesn't appear to be for mass commercial production.
    If it is for commercial production, you have image releases and licensing for such, right?
    Why the red type?
    Why 3 different fonts?

    Graphic design is used to convey a message. This is more along the lines of ''inspirational art,'' in which case, if it makes you happy, then it has accomplished its purpose.

        I agree with PrintDriver's question. Why three different fonts? I think having that many fonts confuses the meaning you are trying to convey. As for the red type I first would like to ask what part of the world you're from and where do you plan on selling or dispersing this shirt? Here in the USA red is used in a few different ways. None which I know of conveys happiness. Red is a hot Color for the most part. The color is widely used to display an urgency or something that needs to stand out. Intense feeling usually communicating along the lines of rage or anger are also conveyed by using a red typeface. the other type of posting I usually see red typefaces on are (ORM) Operation Risk Management posters and important Subjects on Business or legal documents.

        Red may be your favorite color or there may be an entirely different reason you picked the color red but one of the golden rules of graphic design especially for distribution instances is "it isn't the message your product conveys to you. it is the message it conveys to the consumers that matters the most".

        If i were you I would search for positive family message graphics and reference off the colors typically used in this type of product. Do your homework and you will be surprised in what you learn. Its a good effort but think of what the colors mean to your perspective consumers instead of what they mean to you. unless this shirt is for you and you alone.

          sorry to say, I don't think that you know Photoshop pretty well. Because this type of design can be made through Photoshop. Beside this you can google it and can find any other software you like.

          I don't think there is a one-size-fits-all answer to your question. It depends on the company, its culture, the marketing person, the designer and the project at hand.

          Well the work would be work I did. For example lets say I designed someone's logo, poster or website and they want me to take it down.
