Our First Design

May 18, 2022

When we first started, we had no idea where this would go. My creative juices weren’t flowing just yet. I just remember all these sayings that I had seen growing up and thought they were cool and wanted to do something with them. This saying, I can’t remember where I had seen or heard it before, but it was the first one that came to mind. The design was a stock photo and the saying had attitude, The kind of attitude most scaffolders have, that’s why I liked it. I also had a spare hard hat and ran those stickers and plastered the hard with them. Never did release the photos of the hardhat back then, the stickers weren’t really that great, but I was excited about being able to do that kinda stuff. Back when we started, the sticker material wasn’t that great, it was very stiff and didn’t really conform the curve of the hard hat, but like I said we were very “green” at that stage and just starting to explore. We found better sticker material and definitely learned how to design better images. Also, the process we started with to actually make the design to put on the hoodies took about 2.5 hours to complete, we have the process down to about 45 seconds now to complete a hoodie or a shirt. The material we use for that is also better and more durable and will last longer. We don’t do a silk screen print for our designs, we use vinyl material and it has more durability to it.
