Rad Future became a fun name to go by. A combination of a brand I wanted to create while allowing myself to create under a different name. With this my goal is to Inspire Others through creativity.
I've studied graphic design since my early teens. I started to get bored staring at the screen all day so I started creating by hand. Mixing paint, paper, letters and marks to create a new path of design.
I do not follow trends. Prints or Clothes will be available until it has run out. This is not fast fashion. Recently I've started using a print on demand (POD) service. This means on many newer products what you order is made especially for you. There is no stock, no waste.
In my designs I use a lot of old magazine papers, found items and old books. A way to reuse the old for the new. The designs are inspired by grungy or distressed textures, typography, and graffiti.
I seek to create to inspire and I'd love to have you join me on this adventure.
