We were delighted when THE Danilo Franco had contacted us to do a silkscreen for one of his projects.
Besides being one of the best fashion designers the Philippines has to offer (and the most humble), he is also an INCREDIBLE fashion illustrator. We love the way he comes up with inspiration for his work as there’s always a story behind it…
Who knew that the banana leaf print we silkscreened for him…
Would be transformed into this brilliant origami-like vest…

He loves motorcycles. She’s one-eyed and living it. We placed the two together and came up with a logo for this entertaining union.
The logo was part of Guada x Inaki’s customized bandannas. Here’s the bigger picture…
Eyeing the fun details…
Love is blind… And so is my wife.
These made-to-order bandannas were given away as wedding favors during Guada x Inaki’s European union. We’re sure they were especially useful for wiping those tears of joy/tears for fears as they said their “eye-do’s”.
Most people are familiar with the bandanna as a fashion accessory such as a head/neck scarf or fabric bracelet (and to wipe off sweat). Here’s how some of our favorite international photographers and photo editors wear their “Eye-Do’s” on their forehead…
Another international photographer, Daemon Becker, while on a shoot in Umbria, Italy.
“If you wear it, they will come.”… Master photo/video editor, Jake (the Snake) Espedido while on assignment in Palawan.
International photographer, Paco Guerrero takes the “Eye-Do” on a mission with the World Health Organization in Tacloban.
Other uses for the handy bandanna… After eating, use it to wipe your hands. How about as aromatherapy? Simply apply a few drops of essential oils onto your bandanna. Keep in your bar or closet. Need a little pick-me-up? Douse an energizing scent (such as citrus) mid-day to revitalize. Lavender at night to help you sleep and eucalyptus to battle the sniffles. Don’t forget to cover your sneeze with it… Bless you!
Then there are fans of “Furoshiki” (the Japanese way of wrapping things) which uses fabric as carriers for their packed meals, cookies or even a bottle of wine…
Wrapping locally sourced Italian grappa.
The bridesmaids did a wonderful job wrapping it up.

We love silk-screening on t-shirts! We got it down to a tee. So when a friend commissioned us to re-design an existing statement tee to give as gifts to her friends and co-workers, no time was wasted on getting back to the drawing board. “Re-designing” to us is just like starting from scratch.
The original design…
Summer is here! The sun is out! But we’d rather stay indoors and silk-screen!
The re-designed tee in Tan…
And an option with Red…
Our friend couldn’t resist and chose the two colors! We wish she could have given us one too!
