Zoro (Leon Kelham)
Born and raised in Bristol, Leon Kelham AKA Zoro (D&B Producer and DJ) has D&B running through his blood. Brought up on the sounds of the city at 19 years old he’s already proving himself as a force to be reckoned with, gaining support from the likes of Sam Binga, Bou, Born on Road and AC13 to name a few. Working with Zoro we collaboratively designed a gothic style T-shirt. The tee graphic was inspired by the music/rave scene and it features a broken vinyl record and a smiley face with little details like a 'Z' tattoo under the eye. We have built a rewarding relationship with Leon, and will continue to promote each other as we grow together.
Smogg is a 23 year old, Leeds based graphic artist. She is best known for her pattern which takes shape in a number of forms including digital illustration, painting, drawing, streetwear and most recently a delve into street art. "I like to explore multiple themes within my work but a lot of it in the beginning was inspired by underground music culture and from there my ideas flow from societal topics to personal emotions and stories. I don't like to set limits with anything I do whether that be from the methods/materials I use to the topics I cover. I think it's important to allow ideas and new skills to flow with the Smogg, I never get bored that way."
Born and raised around South East Asia, Sabrina is an artist studying at UAL Central Saint Martins. Recently, her work is based on the Drum and Bass culture. "I draw out DJ's I've met, friends from the scene as well as up-comers." The scene is important to her because the community never fails to maintain inclusivity, friendliness and the energy is truly inspiring. Sabrina won our T-shirt design competition, featuring a linear drawing of two girls dancing. The design was influenced from reminiscing on better days dancing away with her friends before COVID came along. The t-shirt is part of our summer 2020 collection! You can find further exciting stuff over her Instagram: @sabsart_
Exeter Demons are the Exeter University American Football Team, who play in the BUCS 1A South West Division locally. We collaborated with The Demons early 2020 and again in January 2021.

The Demons make a lot of demon inspired, streetwear style high quality merch; so when collaborating our ideas combined perfectly to produce some crazy designs. In 2021, we created a collection including a T-Shirt, A Military Shirt, and a Long sleeve. We plan to continue working closely with Exeter Demons to build our club/brand relationship and support them as much as possible.

Quinn Watterson is a 19-year-old skateboarder from Teignmouth in Devon. He first got into streetwear through skateboarding and now designs his own clothes too. "I’ve been skateboarding for about 7 years, too long to keep count really! I’m currently studying Graphic Design at Falmouth University. Art and skateboarding have always been the two things that I care about so in a lot of cases I find that they feed into one another". Collaboratively with Quinn, we designed a Tee with a back print graphic which had a repeated 'Creativity' logo back print. Quinn has a speech impediment called a stammer which effects him when saying words like creativity, other 'Cr' words and similar sounds. This is where the inspiration behind the design came from.
