CHAPTER 11: ADLxFuture Proof: The Future is Bright...

Collaborators: The ADL Scholarship, Gregory Edwards, Tribal Printing Project: Future Proof "Writing Tools" Tee When we started RARE, one of our goals was to create a design that post-secondary students would love. We wanted to create a design that was not only exceptionally dope, but benefited post-secondary initiatives. At the time, we weren't ready to take on this project yet. So we filed it in the "revisit later" pile...  About the ADL Scholarship Well, later came sooner when we were contacted by another local up-and-comer Cierra Bray (Founder of CGal Media & YQG Talks) about a collabo opportunity with her good friend Cessidia De Biasio.

Chapter 10: FORD CITY A True Underdog Story...

Collaborators: Sydney Taylor, Tribal Printing Project: Model T Neigbourhoodie/Model Tee Communi-tee Ford Model T assembly line in 1924 - picture from The Windsor Star You can't celebrate Windsor without a Ford City tribute. Windsor's rich automotive roots have helped shape Windsor into what it is today. This is all thanks to the Ford Motor Company and the Model T. In addition to the automotive influence, Ford City has also had a major role in influencing labour regulations in Canada. The Ford strike of 1945 saw 14,000 members of UAW Local 200 take to the picket line for an unprecedented 99...

Chapter 9: Celebrating the Greatness of Windsor AND Canada

Chapter 9: Celebrating the Greatness of Windsor AND Canada

Collaborators: Sydney Taylor, Tribal Printing, The Great Canadian Flag Project Project: Oh Canada Tee This year marks Canada's 150th as well as Windsor's 125th birthdays. Naturally, we had to come up with something to commemorate this momentous occasion... (enter Oh Canada tee) The story of this design is equal parts celebratory and coincidence. Here's how it all came about: Last year, we identified that one of our main focuses this year would be to incorporate more of a philanthropic aspect to our business. Then along came Peter Hrastovec. We met Peter Hrastovec (the man spearheading the Great Canadian Flag Project (GCFP)) last...

Chapter 8: All Aboard the RARE x EXPRESS!

Collaborators: Windsor Express, Gregory Edwards (Dark Roast Digital), Accurate Creations Most Windsorites (like most Canadians) are die-hard hockey fans. I guess I am an exception to that rule. From a young age, I've always been a basketball guy. So naturally, when it was announced that they were bringing a professional basketball team to Windsor, I was game.  In a hockey-town like Windsor, it's always been a challenge to get fans to get "on-board" the Express fan train. I've always been one to proclaim to others about the quality of basketball played by the Express (and the NBL all together). This was...

Chapter 7: Cookin' Up Some Freshness with Arcata Pizzeria

Chapter 7: Cookin' Up Some Freshness with Arcata Pizzeria

Collaborators: Bob and Rina of Arcata Pizzeria, Sydney Taylor, Tribal Printing Project: "Arcata" Tee Those from around these parts know that Windsor-style pizza is truly world-class. Windsor pizza is something that Windsorites are relentlessly proud of - and for good reason! I didn't realize how good I had it here in Windsor until I tried some "out of town" pizza. It's really no comparison. In fact, I challenge anyone who wants to put their city's pizza against ours to step right up. I will no doubt be the one judging and making the final decision... (more pizza = winning). In fact,...
