A former classmate of mine, John Freeborn recently launched a Kickstarter project for a t-shirt club called AEditions. John has always had a knack for developing unique t-shirts, some of which I bought from him in college and still have in my collection. John has gathered a consortium of artists to assist in making this Kickstarter project different from your average t-shirt club.
Here is an excerpt from their campaign:
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.
Check out the artists that he has lined up at Æditions.org and hopefully you like what you see.
