Era: The Streetwear Explosion
"So this one, in my opinion, is just awesome graphic design. Super simple and broken down, but this is a very elevated form of graphic design. It was actually the skate industry, moreso than the hip-hop or the urban industry that pushed the graphic design element of streetwear T-shirts. Hip-hop T-shirts tended to be blingy and very ostentatious and skate tended to break it down and go more simple, and more simple, and more simple. You look at a logo like this and it’s just like a two point hairline stroke creating a logo that's pure simplicity and that’s what I love about this."
