thEM x Utopian Projects Badge
As a parent of 2 children, unfortunately, we aren’t short on things to worry about. Feeling like the world has gone sideways on so many, I wanted the project to lend aid to food insecurity issues that though impact wide communities, have a large impact on children, especially during summer breaks when there isn’t an opportunity for free nutritious school lunches for those in need.
The design and meaning behind “grow” allude to personal & physical growth as well as having connectivity to agriculture and our environmental issues.
Spot clean only (do not dry clean!) Do not iron. Contains magnets
Founded in 2019, Utopian Projects was originally intended as a personal creative outlet. The brand has since evolved into a project studio as well as a creative consultancy.
Based on a passion for all things outdoor culture, Utopian Projects focuses on reimagining aesthetics that can be applied to referential outdoor and utilitarian items. The projects are thoughtful and I hope you find a unique use for them!
Prior to UP I started my career at Patagonia in Ventura CA and was working as a Creative/Design Director at Urban Outfitters for 14 years.
Our "Grow" badge is in support of Philabundance, located in Philadelphia PA. Philabundance was founded in 1984 with the simple belief that no one should go hungry while healthy food goes to waste. Their mission is to drive hunger from our communities today and to end hunger for good.
In addition to food distribution, they strive to reduce food waste, increase access to nutritious meals, and tackle the root causes of hunger through programs such as the Philabundance Community Kitchen.
