"I am a self starter with 12+ years of experience designing in the clothing industry. I enjoy the struggle to find great ideas not only worth fighting for but worthy of the viewers attention in order to make that connection on a personal level.” — Aaron von Freter
"T-Shirt printing using traditional rubber stamps is a process that I innovated a few years ago for my current employer. The concept was a huge success and is used for large events. It’s amazing to see the variation you get from print to print."
"I’m developing some new vintage style swing tags and I wanted to capture that human quality and all of those tiny imperfections that you get when you work by hand."
"I couldn’t help myself when I saw the challenge for Threadless loves Vintage. This submission is based on vintage typefaces and inspired from old Billheads and ephemera. I used a line from a Billy Joel song “The good old days weren’t always good, and tomorrow is not as bad as it seems” to play on the idea of the over romanticized look of the days gone by.
Digital Arts Magazine asked me to do a tutorial based on this piece for their October 2012 issue.”
"I was approached to write up this tutorial for Digital Arts Magazine UK October issue, to create this vintage typographic piece which was based on my ‘Good Old Days' piece. It is also now live to view online here.”
"I was recently asked to create a poster to help promote the newly released font by Decade Typefoundry called Basingstoke that was based on the classic style of vintage ephemeras and specifically by the Sanborn Insurance Maps. I created a poster based on similar influences as the typeface to showcase it.”
… definitely reminiscent of the work by the Sanborn Map Company.
