T-Shirt Design Trend - Deep Jungle

May 24, 2018


Welcome to the Jungle!

This T-Shirt trend gives the tropical theme a moody overhaul, combining traditional tropical themes like botanical rainforests, lush jungle foliage, island scenery and exotic animal patterns are given a new twist to evoke the wild and dark side of paradise. Shades of green ranging from deep moss to pale lime represent all tones of the lush tropical vegetation mixed with the rich tones of leopard and tiger fur.

Check out the some of the key influences for this T-Shirt print trend below.

Key Details: Tropical Palms / Dark Palm Leaves / Faded Vintage Hawaiian Prints / Green on Green Color Palettes / Cacti / Photographic Tropical Beach Landscapes / Bold Tropical Flowers / Illustrative Drawing Styles / Island Surf References / Faded and Aged Effects / Digital Distortions / Sinister Jungle Scenes / Skulls & Skeletons / Reworked Souvenir Prints.


1-Dark Palm Seamless Patterns

Traditional bold tropical patterns are rendered by digital manipulation using dynamic color scattered across dark grounds. Inspiration comes from retro Hawaiian shirts, dense jungle scenes and tropical foliage. Varying scales and color combinations create new pattern effects.



2-Eye of the Tiger Prints

Tigers are a ferocious animal and are considered the king of the jungle. The tiger is associated with power, strength and beauty. Artistically illustrated, photographic or simply used for pattern and color inspiration, the tigers beautiful fur and fierce face provide inspiration for striking T-Shirt designs.



3-Jungle Wave Prints

Island surf life is depicted through the universal imagery of ocean breaks, palm trees and surf culture icons. Photo-realistic prints & deconstructed imagery are given dark green and faded filters to create an exotic interpretation of surf life.



4-Animal Instinct Seamless Patterns

Wild animal patterns get a modern makeover. Leopard, cheetah and tiger fur patterns are morphed with snakeskin or tropical foliage to create abstract and detailed pattern designs.



5-Vintage Jungle Prints

Tapping into a classic 50's and 60's vintage feel with nostalgic tropical Hawaiian and island beach imagery. Traditional patterns and souvenir prints are given a twisted, sinister and brooding vibe.

Here are some kind words from our happy customers

  • Just wanted to say thank you to Greg and the team at Download T-Shirt Designs & Studio 1 for the incredible artwork you have produced for me over the last 9 years. You have consistently amazed me with your creative yet commercial designs and have been instrumental in helping us build our clothing business and go from strength to strength. You are the only team I trust when it comes to t-shirt designs.

  • I have been working with Studio1 & DTD now for nearly 10 years. I use DTD for instant designs plus I use Studio1 because I know that my design jobs will be completed efficiently, without question and with high quality results. Studio1 offers the highest level of experience, not only from my design expectation but thru to my production execution. I would highly recommend Studio1 if you are looking for a design service that will take your business to the next level.

  • We supply the largest retailers in the world with printed accessories, so we need artwork fast so we purchase from Download T-Shirt Designs plus when we need something exclusively we use their parent company, Studio 1's dynamic team, which enables us to achieve world class results in design. From brief to completion, Studio 1 are professional, accessible & efficient. Studio 1 are the perfect extension to our team and go beyond the call of duty to get results.

  • We are a leading Australian surfwear retailer. We have an in-house design team that is struggling to keep up with the demand, so now that we have found you guys it's really helping with our work load. Having a balance between our design studio & your website full of quality T-Shirt designs that are ready to go is the perfect solution for us.

  • Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the last batch of designs that I purchased from your site have been selling extremely well. Sales are up by 300% on my previous batch that another team designed for me.

  • Premiere had previously only used in house design teams, and I found that having a balance between in house design and an outside resource such as Studio 1’s website (Downloadt-shirtdesigns.com) is a breath of fresh air. Greg and the team are well versed at understanding my objectives, however with their knowledge of fashion and ability to forecast trends, the results are normally above and beyond initial expectations.

    Kidswear Supplier
  • We’ve been consistently using Studio-1 for graphics over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. Nothing is ever too difficult, too much of a problem for their team. The designs – whether bought from their existing designs on DownloadT-ShirtDesigns.com or briefed in for new art – are always on trend and of the highest calibre. And always with quick turn around too.

  • Nearly 12 years ago I found Studio1. One of my first presentations to major retailers in Australia and New Zealand with Studio1′s artwork had the immediate impact that was needed to get the buyers to sign off on the orders. From that time all those years ago to this day Studio 1 is the only graphic design company we use. I could not recommend Studio 1 anymore highly, not only are Greg and his team incredibly talented but to top it all off they are a great company to work with, nothings too hard, always willing to listen and most importantly always coming up with the goods.
