The designs for sink or swim channel the local coastal scenery with an earthy and oceanic colour palette creating a visual connection to the sea. They pay homage to the salty ocean lovers; surfers, divers, fisherman, swimmers and the pirate in all of us.
Sink or swim's prints are made with love and ethical philosophies. Small-batch, environmentally sustainable and individually silkscreened with water based ink. Printed on blank tees that have been carefully sourced from brands that have environmental and ethical commitments.
Due to the hand printed nature of the t-shirts please embrace the perfectly imperfect, the Wabi Sabi*
*Wabi Sabi – The Japanese approach to the celebration of the beauty in imperfection.
Sink or swim is a side project by graphic designer Kellie Olarenshaw. Designed and screen-printed by me in Coffs Harbour - for saltwater souls.
