Who: Joe King Art | Orange County, CA
Background: Joe King has a vast repertoire which includes illustrated and commercial art. Native to Southern California, he grew up skating the streets of Long beach and it’s surrounding cities. School was always an uphill battle, but after only a few semesters at his local junior college it became apparent that illustration and design were going to become his career. Since 2005 Joe has been working with iconic brands such as Crooks N Castles and OBEY, as well as forming his own company, Rook.
Product: When Joe first approached us to make custom metal pins, we were up for the challenge. The unique, and incredibly detailed artwork that Joe was creating, was like nothing Ways & Means had produced before. The first round of soft enamel pins, turned out perfectly, and since then we've created an array of both hard enamel and soft enamel pins, as well as embroidered patches.
Verdict: Don't let details sway your opinion about the branding product you would like to design. Sometimes with just a few small changes, or maybe none at all, even the most unusual and abstract designs can be transformed into a small metal pin, or other interesting product. Contact us for more info if you have a design you'd like to make today.
