Interview with Jerry from Lazy Oaf
Name: Jerry O' SullivanAge: early 20s
What about other graphic designers, do you have any favourites at the moment or particular pet hates about different designs?
There’s some good graphic design stuff happening at the moment, I don’t think there’s a huge amount in the UK of graphic design focused fashion labels for girls. It’s a lot of men’s t-shirts and there are some really good ones, but its more from freelance illustrators who turn designs into t shirts ... I guess we used to do a lot of cartoony and more pun driven designs. There are too many t shirts with logos slapped all over them and clichéd phrases, and we’re over that – there’s just too much of it.
Yeah, especially when Topshop and H&M tapped into it... There’s a lot of cross prints in your SS 11 collection, do you think this witch-house electro ‘explosion’ has merged into today’s trends?
You also stock sellotape adorned in various prints and diaries etc, how did this all come about?
