EVERYONE loves a classic Gap T-shirt, and now there are more reasons to covet one. For its latest collaboration, the American retailer has created The Remix Project that sees it team with a series of emerging artists to create an exclusive collection of limited-edition prints.
They have attracted some of the brightest emerging names on the international art scene, including: Fantasista Utamaro and Yuka Choco Moo from Tokyo; Lin Zhipeng from Beijing; Candy Bird from Taipei; Loïc Lavenu and Maud Vantours from Paris; Kyle Pierce and Jessica Hische from San Francisco; POSE from Chicago; and Neville Brody and Quentin Jones from London.
My design for the REMIX project was inspired by San Francisco, the city I’ve called home for the past 18 years—and where Gap was founded in 1969. It presents the Golden Gate Bridge within a contour of the city; letterforms recreate the fog that so frequently graces the Gate.
Get to know a little more about me and my process in the video above. The video below includes all eleven artists and serves to introduce the project.
