For a long time now I have been knocking around this idea for launching my own brand of clothing. I have had the name 'Deth Kult' in my head for a long time and even went to the lengths of registering the domain and whatnot in 2011. However, I have never found the time or confidence to fully pursue this ambition. Yet when I saw that this class existed I felt that it was a perfect time to start following my ambitions.
The original idea came from an ambition to combine skater clothing styles, and skate deck designs, with a roclk style clothing brand. Brands with simular style such as Drop Dead, Rebel 8 and Lives&Levels.
The name kind of refers to the skater/extreme sports attidude of pushing yourself to the extremes in a 'no fear', death-defying, death-proof mentality. It is meant in a positive way similar to the Bones Brigade skate team.
Ultimately I want to use Deth Kult as a platform to showcase my illustration abilities and my typographic skills and design clothing and skatedecks that convey the attitudes of the rock/skate lifestyle.
