thEM x Jeremy Dean Badge
"It’s a continuation of the Moon theme I started with the first t-shirt I did with thEM. This time it's loosely Sun, Moon Earth (life & stuff)."
Spot clean only (do not dry clean!). Do not iron. Contains magnets.
Jeremy has had a mildly successful career over the past 25 years as a designer, typographer and creative director. Starting his career at International type foundry House Industries, Jeremy was the first design hire before even graduating from college as well as the first to leave.
His time in the industry later took him from varied Art Director and Creative Director roles at Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Ecko Unlimited and Victoria’s Secret Pink.
During his time in corporate lockdown he managed to squeeze in freelance work for bands such as Kid Dynamite, The Explosion, Pedro the Lion, Paint it Black and Jets to Brazil as well as starting a clothing line with his House Industries friends called House33.
In early 2017 Jeremy struck out on his own, and currently manages a roster of clients that have included the Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Dead & Company, Coachella, Phish, Nike, K2 and Stella McCartney under the studio name D.E.S.
Proceeds from this badge will go to Skate Gals n Pals/ Melanin Skate Gals & Pals.
"Continuing with my support for Skate crews I chose Skate Gals n Pals for their work in empowering and amplifying the voices of marginalised communities.
They're working towards a fair representation of BIPOC within the skate world, as well as offering a safe space for anyone of colour to have fun and build their skills. They mix skating with creative arts-based education but also it's about equality for all and really building a supportive community, much like Early Majority."
Tell us about you!
I live outside of Philadelphia. I’m a graphic designer as well as partner is a screen printing studio called Studio Sevens. I’m also a Dad to two Boys and a Husband to one.
How do you lean out, stay active, get out and explore nature?
We are very lucky to live by a fantastic trail that runs the length of the Wissahickon creek in Philadelphia. My wife and I try and get there and walk as much as we can. It is invigorating, relaxing and beautiful.
What are your tools for leaning out?
Comfortable supportive sneakers, compression socks, layers.
Tell us about your gear – what do you tend to bring/wear?
I have two Arc Teryx jackets. One hard shell and one soft for lighter rain / warmer months. A Patagonia snap t for dryer weather, a Utopian Projects hat from my friend Matt, Bombas compression socks, New Balance 992’s, whatever sweatpants I can find, usually Champion reverse weave sweats, and an old band t-shirt.
Do you have a bug-out bag and if so, what’s in it?
I keep it all pretty close to home usually. I carry a waist bag from Rivendell mountain works that fits all my essentials. Keys, wallet, a few bucks.
What do you do to stay safe so you can really relax in nature?
A utopian projects hat as deer ticks are everywhere on the trail. My Bombas compression socks keep me from swelling up like a balloon.
Who inspires you in the outdoors?
My wife. She’s the one who gets me outside. She’s the one that tears me away from the computer. Without her I think I’d be in trouble.
