Medusa, the last Gorgon

This design is part 3 of the Gorgon collection started back in 2011. So far, no collection has been completed in the Aqua Red universe. But this campaign can finally finish the anticipated 3 Gorgon sisters. This design will be made as a short print of only 35 tees and will be given only to those who pledge in the limited $80 or $100 tier and above.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to the Aqua Red 2013 Winter Kickstarter Campaign! We've been working hard creating, researching, and developing the world of Aqua Red. Now, it's time to move onto the next level! 

**REMEMBER** all designs are limited quantity, once a design is discontinued, no reprints are made unless it's in the Masterpiece Collection!!

Started as an art portfolio, Myke took it from paper in a folder to the incarnation of imagination into street style culture.

What is Aqua Red?

"Let's take the "pop" outta pop culture and replace it with twisted!" 

Aqua Red brand apparel and accessories' theme is to let your imagination take control bringing out the fun side of life. Get your styled fashion statement across in our bold designs on super cool gear.

"Stop taking life so seriously all the time! Stand up and defend how unique you are!"  

From pillow fights and wacky boxing matches, to hippies against war and ninjas versus pirates, Aqua Red's twist on reality comes to life. Referencing ancient folklore and history, fairy tales, mythologies, modern urban society we are forever creating the alternative dimension of fashion culture.

Where has Aqua Red been?

 With just short runs of over a dozen different designs, costs and fees of testing the brand were too high of yielding much of a profit margin. After a few years of premiering Aqua Red as a small project idea at conventions and various trade shows, we've sold out! But, the money has all gone back into credit cards and to pay off loans for giving us the chance to test the waters.

Here's a few of our past designs, most sold completely out!

Where's Aqua Red going?

Now we are finally ready to move from a simple trade show table to producing larger runs of merchandising and expand our product catalog! We need your help. Taking the next large step is something that will be full of hard work and challenges, so we need all the support we can get from our friends! 

With the success of this Kickstarter campaign, Aqua Red will greatly expand it's horizons with so much more than tees. In return, we offer our Spring 2013 rewards which feature the newest graphic tees printed on 100% American made cotton! Also, we will be featuring:

  • snapback hats
  • jackets
  • messenger bags
  • pinback buttons
  • die-cut stickers
  • smart phone cases
Each level of rewards offers additional items from the lower (The higher level you contribute to, the more items it contains). Please specify sizes and colors on certain items rewarded (tees, sunglasses, caps, and/or jackets).

Risks and challenges

With manufacturing, there are always potential challenges when it comes to timing and quality. We have been working with very experienced manufacturers, printers, sales team, etc. We began Aqua Red in a barely funded process back in February of 2011, and have treated it very carefully to leave very little room for error. We will speed up every step of the process by going through multiple avenues, screen printers, designers and consultants at the most practical price in order to have a faster production time. We are confident in the number of options we have available to make this happen in a timely and efficient manner.

FAQ

  • A little bit before or just after the campaign ends, we will be sending out emails to those who have chosen tee rewards for information regarding sizes.

    Last updated:
  • The master collection is a rare occasion when we celebrate the most popular designs. We pick out 3 designs and create short print(35) special versions featuring a second finishing hemtag with a star and a printed signature.
