Oxblood & Co. Debut Range, Let's Make Something Great

A couple of years ago, I began creating fonts and through the process of font development found an interest in the art of hand lettering. Since then I have spent almost all of my spare time practicing my hand lettering skills. At first this was a just for fun pastime but after showing my work to friends, it was mentioned that some of my hand drawn pieces would work well as a t-shirt designs. A few digital mock ups later, Oxblood & Co was born. Taking inspiration from vintage logos, sign writing and lettering I set out to create some unique hand drawn designs using interesting or quirky phrases.  

THE BRAND 

Oxblood & Co is all about the flow and individuality of hand drawn lettering, quality screen print and quality garments.

THE RANGE

This first range will feature three hand drawn phrases inspired by the ocean mixed with a little vintage lettering. Design #1 'Tip of the Iceberg'. Design #2 'Cut Your Anchor Loose'. Design #3 "Time & Tide' (the making of this design will be shown in a post update on Kickstarter)

The T-shirts are a soft ringspun cotton and cotton mix. Please see the size breakdown chart to find your size, sizes are stated in inches.

Why only 3 t-shirt designs? This is my first kickstarter project and i am wanting to keep things as simple as i can, having more designs means a bigger minimum order which in turn means a higher funding target. If this project does well, there is a chance a 4th design will be added to the range.  





DESIGN AMENDMENT
Now says 'All your seeing is THE tip of the iceberg' (i took out the Yorkshire-ness)


THE GOAL 

My goal is to firmly plant Oxblood & Co as an apparel brand and one in which people are excited and inspired by when worn. 

PRODUCTION 

Fortunately I have great local screen printer who produce nothing but high quality garments. All their prints are hand pulled, there is no automation here. Once funded, they will have the honour of printing this range. The t-shirts are a super soft ringspun cotton mix, which creates a fantastic tonal look. The design is printed using a discharge process giving the print a soft finish without a heavy ink coverage.

LONG TERM

I have lots of ideas for future designs and ranges. If successful and once all orders have been processed and shipped, I will begin on a follow up range. If this project goes extremely well, surpassing my initial goal, I may be able to produce the next range in-house.

Thank you so much for checking out this project, i am really excited to get our first range produced and on to you guys.

Updates will be posted here with progress on the project, including development shots of the designs.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks and challenges.
Stock levels of base t-shirts could be unavailable at the point of production, this may result in a delayed delivery or a change of base t-shirt. The design and quality of the finished t-shirts are my priority and will not be compromised, backers will be informed of any unforeseen delays or changes.
