behind the scenes: in the moon
Our unique graphics are sourced from a number of places including vintage library graphics from The British Library. Our newest design, Moon Discovery, is carefully pieced together by my husband, Tim, and co-owner of Creation Lab.
Over the last two years we've spent countless hours sorting through thousands of images available for use and piecing them together to form new graphics with a vintage feel about them. At times we drop a project for a few months before coming back to revisit. The process is long and often times frustrating but well worth it in the end!
We started with the idea of a moon print but wanted something more unique than just a one color print of the moon high and low lights. Pulling in pieces of a deep love for math and science we happened upon these five images...
And after a lot of cleaning up, rotating, playing with contrasts and most importantly, love, we have our final design.
Designing doesn't stop there, our design is printed onto a Black Heather Tee and a Charcoal Heather Bella + Canvas Kids Tank. These garments are soft, light, durable and created in sweat shop free factory that recycles every scrap. Our garments only use combed and ring-spun cotton - top notch for top customers!
We chose to print this design with Ryonet's water based discharge, so after the first wash the print is clear as day but you can't feel it with your fingers. It becomes part of the fabric.
