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.
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.
THIS CONCEPT IS A SECTION OF A LARGER COMPLETE SERIES. THE SERIES OF LONGBOARDS THAT WE WILL BE MAKING IS OF THE FOUR ELEMENTS OF NATURE YET WE TOOK OUR OWN LIBERTY TO EXPRESS THESE ELEMENTS IN OUR OWN WAY OF GRAPHICAL EXPRESSION.

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.
