If anything good has come out of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been the extra time that we have all been given. For us it has been something of a creative awakening. It's easy as an artist or designer to be stuck in a rut and not creatively motivated. We've been so caught up with the day to day of running a growing business that we kind of lost track of the joy we had when we were creating something from nothing in our garage!
We both moved to Detroit to pursue a creative career path. Partially because of the inspiration we felt when we both came down here separately. But also because of all the amazing artists and designers who were living here. For awhile now we have been wanting to start a series of designs and one of collections with some of these amazing artists. Artists see the world differently than most people, and they are used to creating with what they have on hand. We want to show people what can be done with reclaimed materials from an artists perspective. We come across so many interesting materials on our salvage jobs. But sometimes the materials are a medium that we aren't familiar with. Our goal is always to save as much from the landfill as possible. So we are hoping with this new series we can help inspire ourselves and everyone else to really reconsider what is waste? And how can we reduce what is thrown out from our job sites?
Our first collab is with TMRWLND. A artist, screen printer, bike rider, and all around good dude. We've worked on a few things together in the past, but we've finally got a collection together for everyone!! Check it out on our Collab Tab.
