Kathmandu - Apparel Print Design and Collaboration
I was approached by leading outdoor brand Kathmandu to collaborate on print designs for the Spring/ Summer 2023 range. The team came across my work on Instagram and I was so excited to hear that they loved my work! To be approached by such a well-known Kiwi brand is an honour. I was astonished when I first saw that Kathmandu had reached out to me to collaborate.
It's not often I get a brief with full creative license for a print design! I had the opportunity to explore multiple concepts and dive deep into the creative process. I really wanted to encapsulate what the brand meant to me, and I pulled on imagery and photography I loved of the New Zealand landscape as inspiration.
The creative process included pitching two different concept directions to the team via a Zoom call. I then developed the favourite concept into a seamless repeat and created options for placement prints for the tees.
“We are a proud New Zealand brand of 30 years, surrounded by some of the world’s most impressive nature, so to collaborate with a talented Kiwi artist who is just as inspired by New Zealand’s beauty has been an incredible opportunity”. - Kathmandu’s General Manager of Product, Robert Fry.
