It started off really innocently: someone gave me a patch at a design convention, and I realised I was still thinking about it after a week. It got me interested in putting a modern spin on ’80s-style clothing patches. I find them everywhere, from street culture to weird phrases. I incorporate a lot of my sense of humour into the designs and often take into consideration feedback and suggestions from fans. Making a good patch requires strategic thinking – I need to think about how it can stand out and the sort of colours to use. We collaborated with Pedder on Scotts earlier this year. The design was very intricate and consisted of small squares that almost drove the [sewing] machine crazy! That was definitely quite a challenge! As for future plans, I intend to continue designing more patches to amass a huge collection of original designs and widen our reach overseas. I also hope to create more event-specific memorabilia and even music festival patches!
