Cool merch alert! T-shirt design for web designers and programmers

I once worked in a big broadcasting network. We didn’t have an official uniform but we could buy wearable merch. I bought a black collared shirt with a logo on the left chest and another at the back. I felt proud every time I wore that top in public.

We frequently recorded TV shows in crowded environments, so I thought the shirt was very useful for a variety of reasons.

First and foremost, I didn’t need to tell people where I worked. Second, I didn’t have to explain why we had cameras to anyone, and third, my teammates could easily find me in a crowd even if I turned my back.

I only had one piece of branded clothing and didn’t mind washing it every weekend. I wore it until my last day at work, even though it had small holes by the time I resigned.

Merch = badge of belongingness

Every employee wishes to be a part of a team, and merch or unofficial attire can help. This is why companies selling branded merchandise and sports teams wear uniforms. They feel more like a team when everyone wears the same shirts.

The same is true in business, and some companies require their employees to wear uniforms. It has been found that having merch boosts company morale.

What about small and medium-sized businesses where the founder wears multiple hats? 

Don’t fret! You’re still a part of something bigger. I’m sure you’re not the only web developer in the world. This means you can share your experiences and connect with others who share your interests.

It’d be awesome to wear merch that shows how cool your passion is and use it to strike up a conversation with someone who needs your help. You’ll land a big client before you know it!

Merch is a type of marketing that you can wear on your sleeve (both literally and metaphorically).
