This month marks the one-year anniversary of his blog, and KJ wanted to do something special to commemorate it. That's when he came to Not Made In China. Or in the words of KJ's blog, "[Nikki] made these cool buttons and other neat hand crafted thing-a-ma-gigs and I vowed to myself that I would someday work with her. Well–inspiration hit– so I reached out."
KJ supplied two button designs and asked Not Made In China to design the third and the packaging. He had a new concept for a sub-brand he wanted to roll out. Enter The Fighting Enlightened button. I have to admit KJ is an ideal client. He's prompt, passionate, provided me with multiple sketches for concepts, and promotes the heck out of NMIC! I had a blast designing and creating for him. I even enlisted my boyfriend to help since he's got more of an urban design sense than me. And the finished product is one both H1GHER and NMIC are proud to present... seriously, it's only been a couple weeks since I mailed him the packs and already he's got them on the streets (see below)!
