Design Inspiration: 1st Day of School

Rate this post

It might only be May, but there are plenty of parents and relatives who are already preparing for their little one’s first day of school. This is a great opportunity to make some sale via back-to-school gear, and we’ve provided some essential design inspiration below.


If you’re specifically focused on children who will be attending their first ever day of school, then you should consider that their styles generally match their age. In other words, you shouldn’t be looking to appeal to teenagers or adults; rather, you should be targeting young children!

Kids generally enjoy styles that are cute, colorful, and playful. They’re also receptive to both illustrated designs and typography designs. The range of styles will provide you with plenty of flexibility as you’re preparing your designs!


It’s tough to zero in one any particular topic that would appeal to children, as seemingly every kid has their own particular hobbies and interests. However, there are still some standard topics that should do the trick.

When preparing your designs, keep in mind that children are receptive to animals and cute creatures. If you’re looking to add some learning-element to your designs, then you could consider adding letters, numbers, and even maps!


Of course, since you’re catering to younger children, you won’t want to be designing for, say, a men’s hoodie. Rather, focus on products that children will want. Specifically, the following products tend to be popular among children:

  • Drawstring Bags
  • Tote Bags
  • Backpacks
  • Caps and Hats
  • Posters
  • Water Bottles
  • Kids Apparel
