About STATIC X CHAOS APPAREL
STATIC X CHAOS APPAREL is an original, custom design clothing company based in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada.
Most of the designs are originally hand drawn, then scanned and converted into a vector graphic file.
Background (Jamie Fitz, Founder):
The name and several designs originated in High School (2012). It wasn't until the summer of 2015 however, that I finally had a direction. With the creation of the "Galaxy Lion" as it was called back then, I originally made as a tattoo design, but it was put on a shirt for my birthday that year and everything finally clicked. The name Static X Chaos came from a friend and it initially had no meaning, however that has evolved over time.
Wave 0: The first run of shirts I made with the Galaxy Lion was printed on a handful of shirts from the local London Drugs during the summer of 2015.
Wave 1: After some contemplation, I created a logo for the brand, and later I made the first rendition of my online store. By November 2015, I had launched the website, www.staticxchaos.com with a few more designs I drew then later edited on Photoshop.
Wave 2: I wanted to increase the level of quality of my printfiles, with the advice of a few graphic designers, I learned to use Adobe Illustrator and created Vector Graphic enhancements to my original run of designs, as well as releasing a "wave" of new designs (Summer 2016). However Wave 2 went on a Hiatus as I focused on my studies at SAIT. Now that I am graduated, Wave 2 is officially continuing with a new website and many designs to be announced in the near future.
The meaning of Static X Chaos to me relates to my struggle with Depression (Static) and Anxiety (Chaos). I have been able to rise above these daily struggles by having a creative outlet that lets me express myself. I strive to promote this with this brand, to follow ones passions, to find your gift and use that to find purpose and to grow.
I pride myself in my attention to detail and I like to incorporate vibrant colors and contrasting imagery. I draw most of my designs by hand with Prismacolor pencil crayons, but I am planning to expand my skillset to include other mediums as well.
Currently owned and operated in the Airdrie, AB area. I *currently* print my designs through a Californian based company, Printful. They offer many different shirt styles, fits, colors, as well as other products that I shall be incorporating into my catalog as I keep expanding my online store.
As I am a new business, this is all a learning experience for me, but I value my personal integrity and attention to detail. All my products have to meet my standards and I hope that they will meet yours as well. Thank you for your interest in my artwork and I hope that you will support me and other local artists so we can continue to create!
