In 2004, 2005 and a little of 2006 I worked in one of my favourite jobs I've ever had. I was part of the coolest gang in town, The Liberty Blue crew. Liberty Blue is an independent boutique store, an Aladdin's Cave of quirky dresses from little labels, locally made jewellery trinkets and back then we also had a t-shirt printing service.
When I worked there with sisters Emma & Fiona, Timmy (now of Gertrude Anna) and Sean, Liberty Blue owner Nigel gave us a chance to have some fun with the t-shirt printing. We had stacks of American Apparel tees in every colour of the rainbow, a file of genuine 70s' t-shirt decals as well as crisp, shiny bright tee transfers by local designers like Steven Quinn, Heather Sloane and Andy Henry.
Our fun job was to snip and collate the transfers into new patterns and prints for a series of our own unique tees. These were then sold in store, which was great craic when someone liked your crazy design enough to buy it!
Here are some of my designs from that year, 2005, I wonder if anyone out there reading this has ever seen them being worn by a friend or even did you buy it yourself?
