This study upholds the mission of the cultural scholars to conduct study to the teenage subculture in Taiwan, with the expectation to make some contribution to the cultural and creative industry in Taiwan.
Subculture is the cultural focus identified by the teenagers. T-shirt is the media goods of the teenagers for self-expression. Thus, this study, through questionnaire investigation and literature review, explores the relations between the teenager subculture and T-shirt design, further observing the relevance and difference of the teenagers’ brand apparel. In this way, it gets to know the three T-shirt design elements, namely, basic element, cultural element and material element.

Moreover, it applies the theme of Facing The World to the design of this paper. Furthermore, it uses the new design ways and thoughts to create new brands and design models, which allow the teenagers to care the life, reflect the future and the reality, finally finding the value of their life existence.
This study attempts to tell the public about the variability of the subculture on the design through the design that can change the negative views of the public towards the subculture. The future designers can refer to the creation process of this study, which can be also applied to the design model of cultural goods.
