This link is a great tool if you are looking to convert your super-awesome gradient design into a T-shirt friendly design. I used this for a school athletic logo. I had a few different versions. Here you can see the progression of the designs. It seams that the booster club was going for a more traditional look. 

Thank you to Shirtoid for the excellent tutorial! I hope someone can use this link to get the look they are going for. <http://shirtoid.com/tutorials/halftone-gradient-in-illustrator/>

experimental logo


Logo number one: This I came up with just out of the blue, not knowing what they had in mind. The only thing I heard was that they wanted a "new" logo. So I pushed the envelope...





Preexisting Lacrosse logo

Logo number two: After seeing the logo I came up with, they decided they wanted to replicate the "logo" that they had in the past. Now I put quotes around "logo" because this is where I find out the "logo" is a shirt design. I had a hard time replicating a previous look because the words and placement of each item changed, which changed the look of the graphic.




modern lacrosse logo


 

Logo number three: Here they decided to veer from the previous year's design. They wanted a look that they had seem elsewhere, but did not have the high resolution files.  Also, this was to be printed on a T-shirt so the gradient they had would not work. I was able to play around and get the "gradient" to look modern and edgy.







final lacrosse logo 




Logo number four: After more deliberation, they decided they were looking for a gradient only look. So here I was able to use the link above to get the screen in the Lacrosse letters. Here this will be easy to screen onto a t-shirt. It will be a simple 2 color design that covers the look they were going for.  Happy customers equals a happy designer!
