New Fall 2012 Tee Original Rumble

This design pays homage to the classic boxing title fights of the early 1960’s. The original rumble tee was inspired by the nostalgic ticket stubs of that era. Each design is screen printed with super soft black water based ink on a camel color premium fit American Apparel tee.

It’s been awhile since I did a post on food for thought. I thought it would be good way to start out the day. Below is a list of some great life quotes. Some are serious & others are funny. But they’re meant to make you think about this gift we have called life. Enjoy!

2.  It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.

Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick on Vimeo.

I recently wrote a blog titled passion vs. money. And I couldn’t think of a better example that gets that message across than this video I saw recently about a 9yr old boy name Caine who had a dream/passion to build his own Aarcade. This video has inpsired millions around the world with over 2.5 million views to date. Caine is a perfect example of someone who has passion for what he does & not just focused on making money. Please check out this very inspiring video. I think it will truly speak for itself!

The Idea Behind Wood Hay & Stubble

The idea behind this tee was to create an Intellectual - simple/clean - urban style design. The t-shirt has a premium fit that gives off a look that is tailor made. The concept behind the tee is meant to stir up a conversation about its meaning. Vogink is known for creating designs that center around wise sayings & proverbs. And we think the new Wood Hay & Stubble design fits beautifully into the concept. This popular term was coined in the bible from 1 Corinthians 3:12-15. Wood Hay & Stubble represents the validity/weight of our actions in life & whether the things we do in this life will yield us a greater eternal reward. This design is meant to be a daily reminder to focus on timeless principals & to wear it proudly with style.
