About

When I was young and discovered skateboarding I started to really look at logos and graphics in a different way. I didn’t know it at the time, but since then I’ve spent a lot of time designing graphics. In college, I started a skateboard company and helped friends with a clothing brand. I did some of the designs myself but many came from the minds and hands of my friends. I had my favorite tees from big name companies, but to be honest the shirts that I loved the most were designed by my friends and I.

I want to rekindle that love with this Kickstarter project. Æditions.org is a t-shirt club where every shirt is designed by an awesome artist or designer and is only available to club members in limited numbers. I’ve got a great roster of artists signed on to do the designs. For the first year I’ve already confirmed Rich Jacobs, Hershel Baltrotsky, Jim Houser, Ben Horton, Andrew Jeffrey Wright and Dallas Clayton.

We will use the best tees we can find and everything will be printed in the USA. Mens and womens tees will be available in size small to xx-large. All of the artists will be paid for their work above market rates.

If this sounds awesome please help by contributing to the Æditions.org Kickstarter campaign and help by spreading the word on your social networks. Any and all help is appreciated in making this project real. Thanks!

I can't tell you all of the artists just yet or what the order will be but here's a more expanded list of who's confirmed for year 1: Tim Gough, Jim Houser, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Rich Jacobs, Alex Aranovich, Hershel Baltrotsky, Ben Horton, John Freeborn, Justin Santora, and Dallas Clayton.

Risks and challenges

Producing t-shirts isn't a dark art, but does involved some know how. I've designed shirts (from pulling ink, to designing the artwork) for companies big and small so I understand the process. I've worked with artists in translating their styles to the screen printing medium. I have relationships with some really great artists and designers. Setbacks do happen in production, but I have a partner who owns his own print shop. I should be able to minimize those types of problems.
