Ed & Flo is me, Tom... hello. I make t-shirts. Basically. Eli designed the main logo (cheers Eli). And Mike came up with the name (cheers Mike). It doesn’t really mean anything. But I’ve since found out that some turbines in the River Trent are called Ed and Flo. And I was born in Burton-on-Trent. And my dad’s name is Eddie, so... Apparently Frank Zappa’s roadies were called Ed and Flo too but I think I’m drifting a bit off-topic.
So yeah, t-shirts. I print them all by hand. My designs depend on whatever I’m into at that particular moment. Some are hand drawn, others are vector graphics – I like to switch it up from time to time.
I always start with the t-shirt colour and essentially take it from there. It’s hard to say where my designs actually come from. Sometimes I’ll see a photo and start sketching, otherwise it’s just random.And me? Well, I live in Cardiff. I work full-time at a screen-printing company, VisibleArt. And in my spare time, I’m a partner at the Printhaus – an independent creative community.
That’s about it, really.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering... These t-shirts won’t change your life.
But they’re still pretty awesome.
