About

FACTORY 

Factory is a counterculture collective of artists looking to use art as an influencer for the people. This business of politics, culture and economy relies on image and popularity. We know that swing voters are the key demographic to effecting change and want to use art to show the true state of the nation.

CONCEPT

We are currently in a political state of unease. The divide between the right and left is becoming more blurred whilst people who really want to make a change have to fight against the machine with every word they say.

We want the world to change and to spread support for the guys who really want to make that change for the greater good.

GOALS

Using the mediums of art and fashion, together we can create a movement of solidarity amongst the younger generations to affect the whole dynamic of youth voting. If it wasn't already considered cool to vote, let alone vote for Jeremy Corbyn or Bernie Sanders, we believe that we can make it that way.

PRODUCT

As a collective we have developed a small range of products to contribute to this political movement.

SIZE GUIDE

PROCESS 

Our first series of imagery comes from one of the biggest movements within the art world, Andy Warhol's Pop Art, and in particular his founding of Jean Michel Basquiat. He revolutionised the art world and turned it completely on his head. He was the true definition of someone who went against the machine and made change within the art world.

CAUSE 

In supporting our cause you are helping our countries believe change can happen. You are helping the youth understand the importance of voting and you are giving a voice to a collective of young artists who are determined to make a change to the world.

CASE STUDY - Creating a voice through branding

We want to provide the youth demographic with a voice for the good of society. The influence youth brands have in this country is huge, in 4 years 'Hype Clothing' was able to grow from a small bedroom start up to a company now boasting 650000 Facebook followers. Utilising a brand with so much influence on the youth to raise awareness of the importance of politics, ethics, and cultural awareness. That brand could fundamentally change the way society sees the world.

BRAND INFLUENCE

Everyone is aware of the power of advertising and brand power, it’s why kids eat what they eat, do what they do, and think the way they think. If an influential brand uses its voice and authority to talk about climate change and political unrest, the potential for youth to have a valid and heard opinion on important topics is invaluable.

Risks and challenges

FAQ

We have as a collective over 7 years of experience in various creative industries, from clothing manufacture to artistic commissions.

Our initial goal of this project is to produce a range of printed t-shirts and printed media. There are some problems that could occur in the production of these products. There is a potential for some inaccuracies in print quality, delays in manufacture and issues with the shipping. To counter these problems we have set up the following protective procedures.

Print Quality - All print is tested first with prototype samples and is confirmed and signed off as the finalised product by our meticulous team of quality controllers. A contract stipulating the standards of quality required by the manufacturers is agreed and any faults can be returned and exchanged.

Delays in Manufacture – To minimize the likelihood of any delays at manufacture it is important that we find a reliable supplier and allow enough time with a margin for problems in the process. We have, in our years of experience, worked closely with this particular supplier and have developed a great relationship with them. They already produce over 100,000 units a month and will have no problem in scheduling in our needs. We will be monitoring the progress of our campaign and our supplier will be constantly updated to ensure that product can be ready for shipping as soon as possible!

Shipping Issues – We will be delivering all packages with a trackable recorded delivery service to ensure that there are no delivery disputes, and that they arrive on time in the best condition possible.

T-shirt sizing – If we raise what we need to begin manufacture we will send out emails for confirmation of sizing. Our t-shirts will be available in standard sizes small, medium, large and extra-large.
