T-Shirt Design Templates
• This 2022 brought some historical events that marked the year, such as the passing of Queen Elizabeth of England, a theme that caused a commotion and became the best-selling design in Placeit’s t-shirt designs.
• Next on the list, another event that caused a stir was the controversial war between Russia and Ukraine that unfortunately continues to this day. For this theme, the t-shirts with peaceful quotes were a hit to show support and compassion.
• On the other hand, leaving out the world events, we also found the summer designs, which were a big success! And in keeping with the relaxed vibe, many users made cool and casual-themed t-shirt designs that include short phrases as their favorites.
Social Media Design Templates
• The highlights in our best templates list were mainly YouTube thumbnails focused on gamers and virtual reality. Some of them had as protagonists adorable felines, which makes us wonder, do they have any reason to be or go great with any theme?
• And continuing with the best templates of the year regarding social media, we found ourselves again with the historical events we mentioned previously. In this case, the Queen’s demise and the controversial war, for which our designers put their hands to work to create Instagram posts that reflect genuine support and comfort for those difficult moments.
• Also, within the top 10, we found popular posts to celebrate the popular green event in Ireland: St. Patrick’s. And continuing with the green colors, we had an informative post about the side effects of cannabis, a topic on which you can find many more designs here!
• Finally, informative posts are among the most acclaimed templates. In this case, the star template that took the ovations was an LGBT-themed one.

As for logos, once again, the Queen took the headlines, and this logo creation was phenomenal to honor her majesty. However, there was also a big boom in streetwear, urban, vintage, and hip-hop styles. Everything related to the world of gamers was very popular as well. Gamers also need to have an outstanding logo to be noticed, differentiate themselves, and build a compelling brand.
Finally, let’s also highlight the logos designed for basketball fans, business owners, and the LGBT community.
The Best 10 Mockups Templates During 2022
Ah, mockups! A great tool that came to revolutionize the business of physical items. Previously, you had to send a product with your brand to the printer to get a sample.
