The Design Model
Design is the platform from which we've built our company. It's a process that combines rendering skills, computer savvy, and the ability to transfer what's on screen to a finished T-shirt. But more importantly, it requires an eye for the image, a love of pop culture, and an obsession with what's next!
The NCS team hunts for trending visual elements, fabrics, and body styles. This information is distilled into a set of graphic themes, design CADs, and finished samples. These are the building blocks of each project. We work closely with our account's designers and buyers, through each development cycle; with the goal of creating a stunning product delivered on time.
It's all about the art. We know from experience that the coolest fabrication won't make up for a lame design. If the image doesn't resonate with the customer, the shirt is destined for the closeout table. From hip boutiques to mass market giants, NCS designers scan the fashion matrix for graphic ideas that go into each design.
Show us what you like, and we'll devise a plan to make it happen. We take your inspiration and run with it. The more we work with a customer, the more our design team becomes an extension of your brands creative identity. Our design style blends diverse cultural, fashion, and graphic elements; but only to enhance our client's artistic vision and market share.
The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. Cutting edge screenprint techniques, lavish embellishments, and subtle fabrication details become an integral part of the design process. But great art can be ruined by poor execution. That's why we sample at every step in the development cycle. Fit samples. Strike offs. Pre-production samples. Touch it, feel it, and see it, before the shirt hits the shelves.
“It ain’t right ‘til it’s right” is our mantra. Our entire team works with you through the revision process with a smile and an eye for the end game. At the same time we strive to educate our client partners on the nuances of the production process, so that each project gets done effectively, on time and at cost.
