Be The Origin men’s T-shirt collection is about classic, bold, & unwavering designs printed on premium fitted, super-soft T-Shirts that every man will want to wear.
Solana Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/30/2013 -- Joe McDonald & Matt Harding are the two persons behind the Skulls & Wings T-Shirt Collection project. They met back in 2004 when both were freelancing for various design and web related projects. Their official business partnership started in 2007.
After building hundreds of successful websites for clients they finally decided to follow their dream of designing for their very own line of apparel. Skulls & Wings Clothing Company was officially born. The symbolism behind Skulls and Wings varies between cultures - some positive, some negative. For Joe and Matt it represents the mortality of good people, the legacy and the dreams they have left with them. Their purpose is to encourage people to do better and to stand up for what they think and feel is right.
Co-Founder and Designer, Matt Harding says, "We believe the designs are a new bold spin on some old iconic symbols. The young generation will hopefully be drawn to the high-end style, soft apparel and fresh designs, while us guys of a slightly older generation will recognize some of the design concepts and throwbacks to their youth. We think there's something for everyone in this collection."
Also part of the design series is a collaboration with local artists, the first of which is called "Homeward Bound", a ghostly pirate ship done in pen & ink by local California artist, Gregg Visintainer.
From a few feet away his art appears like a normal sketch of a ship, but when you get closer you realize the image is actually made up of many different smaller images and messages, all strategically placed together to form the larger design. Gregg drew his inspiration from the late tattoo artist Sailor Jerry.
Joe and Matt are looking for enough funding to manufacturer and introduce their first Men's t-shirt collection. Each will be printed on premium Next Level Apparel fashion-fit t-shirts and will be available for purchase through the website; www.skullsandwings.com. The t-shirts will be screen printed by a local shop.
Along with a choice of t-shirt, the Kickstarter campaign pledge levels also include custom sticker packs and original posters.
All funds raised will be utilized for
Initial Skulls T-shirt Inventory - Each one t-shirt design is a minimum 72 units.
SEO, Social Media, and Email Marketing
Ongoing Site Maintenance and General Guerrilla Marketing
This project will only be funded if at least $8,500 is pledged by Sunday Jun 16, 6:05pm EDT.
