ZCLOCO began in 2007 when I tagged my signature anywhere I could :: on whiteboards, chalkboards, binders, driver’s license, school assignments.
I would sit in class drawing it over and over, decorating my binders, school papers, everywhere. I would borrow markers and pencils from nearby students, populating whatever I could get my hands on with multitudes of my logo.
Then I had the idea to put it on a shirt. I don’t even remember how it came up with the idea. The name took quite awhile to figure out and I eventually settled on ZCLOCO :: Z CLO.thing CO.mpany. From there I sat down with the graphic designer at the print shop to make the vector file and made the first run of 24 shirts.I had no idea if people would buy them, how they would sell, or what the hell I was doing. But I jumped in anyway.
All 24 sold out immediately.
Over the next 3 years I sold over 500 variations of the design printed on t-shirts, tank tops, and hoodies.
After high school I moved on to other ventures but ever since I've wanted to bring back ZCLOCO.
Years later, fueled by creative inspiration from around the world, ideas picked up here and there, and ambition to create eye-catching products focused on the creative community I present :: The Sequel
