2013 was a great year, although the ups and downs as usual we hold steady as 2013 tappers of into the upcoming 2014, DAGRAPHIXX definitely has crawled through some beginning stages of operation. This year we have purchased our first two machines for in-house manufacturing which led to our first printed “Winter” collection and the photo shoot which created one of my favorite AD’s above.
We also had other great outside projects this year as we where commissioned to paint a mural for a batting cage business store front, a local church commissioned mural as well as design summer t-shirts for the “Roots” during one of the biggest summer events in Philly, “The Roots Picnic”.
We also have made some great affiliations and business deals which are still in the works from 2013 that will carry over to 2014, which we can not wait to share once all the “T’s” are crossed and we have dotted all of our “I’s” on those deals.
I’m greatly impressed with our progress, next year we do see as a challenge but we can not wait to conquer whatever is to come.
We are almost there. For a long time we have been in the process of identifying what it is that we do, who “DAGRAPHIXX” is and what direction we would take. The pivotal moment is close. We are in the end process of collecting and packaging everything to deliver to the world and make our place in reality. Stay tuned to celebrate our first home, our website which is coming soon!
Today was just a good day for inspiration and we took a leap to design around form and function. Winter is coming soon and the weather for good old reliable skullies and warm headgear is close so we began to concept and design what you see here. This is just the digital concept so stay tuned to see the full layout and printed versions of this product that will be accessible by our bigcartel.com
The beauty at DA.GRAPHIXX is we only don’t just design for ourselves we collaborate with local freelance opportunities. Check out this fun project we recently completed to animate a portrait of rapper Mayne Event also known as
@Mayne for promotional purposes. We hope you enjoy this fun project and we will Talk to you soon.
Over the days DA.GRAPHIXX has been brainstorming concepts of possible campaigns to move forward with to help release the grand opening of our BigCartel.com e-commerce store. This is a fun concept we thought could be an interactive concept with our DA.GRAPHIXX fans where this campaign could run, track and receive comments from people all over our social media platforms. Fans would be encouraged let us know their favorite color. We then would release our first apparel design reflecting the most prominent mentioned color at a limited time promotion price.

JUST RECENTLY DA.GRAPHIXX HAS BEEN INVITED BACK FOR ANOTHER PKG PHILLY KID GRAFFIX ART GALLERY. THE CONCEPT FOR THE NEXT SHOW WILL BE TOY CONCEPTS. WE STARTED OUR CONCEPT ON THE POPULAR KID ROBOT MUNNY BLANK TOY. AFTER OUR ROUND OF SKETCHES WE CAME UP WITH THIS LITTLE CHARACTER THAT WAS FIRST CREATED AS A GRAPHIC FOR A T-SHIRT THAT WILL BE RELEASED THIS SUMMER. OUR TOY IS THE SAME CHARACTER BUT IN A BABY FORM.
AFTER GOING THROUGH OUR FIRST COUPLE OF DRAFTING CONCEPTS I HAVE A STRONG FEELING TOYS WILL BE SOMETHING DA.GRAPHIXX WILL BE REVISITING AGIAN BUT FROM COMPLETE SCRATCH. WE LIKE THE CUSTOMIZATION OF BLANK TOYS BUT WE HAVE IDEAS FOR A MORE EXPRESSIVE TOY. STAY TUNNED TO SEE THE FINAL PRODUCTION OF THIS TOY AS WELL AS THE NEW SKETCHES FOR OUR OWN TOY.
THIS MONTH ART GALLERY WAS AT PKG “PHILLY KID GRAFFIX” LOCATED AT 516 W. GIRARD AVE. IN PHILADELPHIA. THE THEME OF THIS ART SHOW WAS FROM PAINT TO SHIRTS WHERE LOCAL PHILADELPHIA ARTIST WERE TO DESIGN AND CONCEPT A PAINTING TO BE APPLIED FOR A T-SHIRT GRAPHIC. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR “LOST SOULS CONCEPT” WE SUBMITTED FOR THE ART GALLERY.
THIS IS A LATE DESGN WE HAVE USED BUT IT HAS MADE IT TO THE ART GALLERY THIS MAY FORM THE OLD PAGES OF A SKETCH BOOK. THIS CONCEPT WAS A PLAY ON THE WAY FASHION TRENDS SOME TIMES MISLEAD AND DEMOLISH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.
THE CONCEPT WAS CREATED BY THE WAY DA.GRAPHIXX NOTICED HOW SOME BRANDS USED WOODEN JEWELRY SUCH AS ROSARIES FOR THE YOUTH TO WEAR AROUND THEIR NECKS AS A FORM OF JEWELRY. IN MANY RELIGIONS AND THE WAY I WAS REASED, WEARING RELIGIOUS ARTIFACTS OR SYMBOLIC GARMENTS ARE MENT FOR THE CLERGY OR SELECTED ANOINTED INDIVIDUALS YET WITH THIS FASHION TREND THIS FORM OF RESPECT WAS TAKEN TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL AND ERASED.
WE WOULD NOT LIKE TO ELABORATE ON OUR IDEAS AND VIEW POINTS ON THIS TOPIC BUT WE FELT EXPRESSING OUR CONCERNS THROUGH A VISUAL INTERPRETATION WOULD BE ENOUGH SO WE HAVE, SO HERE IT IS,”LOST SOULS”
WE WOULD LIKE TO BE THE FIRST TO WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY VALENTINES DAY FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS…:)
