Fill the niche: Transportation

February 26, 2021 by Zuza Ciszewska in Artist Corner


Everyone’s constantly in a rush these days and this week we want you to move in the right direction and create your own, transport-related designs. 

Here’s how to go off the beaten track and create original, transport-related art:

There are numerous means of transportation that can be turned into amazing designs. Each of them could become a big collection appealing to railfans, gearheads, plane spotters, and sailors. By creating a wide range of illustrations, you are letting people express their passions, hobbies, or professions.

There are 5 main modes of transport: 

▪ road transport

▪ railway transport

▪ water transport

▪ air transport

▪ pipeline transport

Most of these are not covered on Displate. For example passion for trains, flying by plane, motorization, or tanker ships are just a few of the topics waiting to be tackled. Now try to think how many people are crazy about them. Oh, it’s waaaay more than that! And they are all your potential customers.

So let’s hit the road:

    1. 1. Make a list of (at least) 10 means of transport
    1. 2. Write down any non-copyrighted stuff connected to them
    1. 3. Plan your collections – choose whether you want to create one big collection devoted to transportation in general or split them into specific ones
    1. 4. Create original and unique artworks only
    1. 5. Now that you know that you should create your own, original artworks, let’s hit the road!

      1. 6. Prepare your designs properly for upload on Displate –

Pro tip: add the hashtag: transport2021 to your transportation-related designs to help us find your art and get a chance for a feature. No fan arts, no trademarks – just turning hobbies into awesome designs!

Remember! You have to come up with your own art style without violating any third-party rights. Make your collections funny, inspirational, or serious, as long as they fully showcase your original idea.
