*UPDATE* Now featuring a new design by the awesome Jason Carne!



---

Hey guys, I have been working on this in my spare time for the last few months or so and finally ready to get things going!

The Hero Collective is a collaborative t-shirt design project in which I team up with awesome artists to create limited edition print runs. All designs are done by top notch artists we all know and respect and they are given 100% creative control over what they design.

Shirts will be released in staggered series along with interviews and information about the process of the design and the artists involved.

This is just as much about the artists themselves as the shirts, if not more. I want to focus and pay respect to those who do this for a living and set the bar high for all other designers in this industry.

* All sales directly support the artists involved

* The prints are done in runs of 50 at a time and will not exceed 2 runs...meaning there will not be more than 100 shirts of a certain design

So with all that said, here is the first artist and design by the one and only Derrick Castle!

The site may be a tad buggy for a couple days until it is 100%, but I wanted to share this with you guys before the weekend! :)

    I wanted to post this on mintees first as sort of a "soft" launch...if you guys notice anything weird with the site please let me know so I can fix it asap. Thanks!

    Derrick did an amazing job and I look forward to seeing what Jason and David contribute.

    My only peeve with the site is that in the shop section, I have to click the title to view the product. It would be nice if the product image linked to the item as well. Other than that, everything is great.

    They are on Next Level...I have really liked the changes and improvements they have made over the past year or so. I love the fit and feel.

    *I should also add this is a discharge print so after being washed once you wont be able to feel any print at all, super soft and nice :)

    Really enjoy the rugged design of the site, the copy fits with the overall feel and the brand image is strong. I like it, it feels different and i want one. Let us know when you make the jump across the pond.
  • Jason Carne

    Glad to be a part of this! If any of you will be at WMC this year I'll have some of these for sale there, so stop by and say hi and stuff.
