Recently, I’ve found myself returning to the inspiration that really opened my eyes during my development years as adesigner. These development years established how I view design now, what I regard as good design and what I find aesthetically pleasing.
Note: I define development years loosely as late high school when I tailored my education by selecting graphic and design based subjects, through to leaving university.

A coupla’ weeks ago, the awesome folk at Mister Dress-Up asked if I would like to design a t-shirt to be sold via the site. Mister Dress-Up is a Montreal based artist community that launches a range of new t-shirt designs every week, each design is only posted for one week, so if you would like to get your hands on any, do it now!
I was super stoked to be asked , you can buy the t-shirt in both mens and womens sizes here.

A favourite, and more so now that I ride, is the bike pictured above with its awesome stress test inspired colour way. You can view some more photos of the bike here, and read an interesting interview with Garrett here.
