Threadless creates amazing opportunities

Threadless really does create amazing opportunities. Ever since I have been subbing on here and getting some stuff printed, things have just seemed to crop up but it all comes back to the stuff that I do on here.


I work full time at a big creative agency in the UK and I started subbing on here just to keep myself sane and away from the stress of agency life.


I sub on here for pure enjoyment and to create designs exactly the way I want to, without being told, 'can you change this, change that, alter colours etc... and I absolutely love it.


A couple of weeks ago the band the The National approached to create a t-shirt for their new tour - they are one of my favourite bands and to have them approach me after seeing some of my work online has been amazing and quite surreal - some of the work they referred to is stuff I have had printed here and put on S6. Their design is complete and approved. I was left to do pretty much whatever I wanted.


Without Threadless I wouldn't even be creating stuff in my spare-time I don't think, let alone having GAP prints and a band like the National approach me for some artwork.


So a huge thanks Threadless, you've kept me sane, made me a better creative and helped open up some cool opportunities.
