To celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of our flagship store in downtown Portland, we teamed with long time friend Cole Gerst / Option-G to create a limited collection of graphic tees, a hat, and tote showcasing Gerst’s unique geometric art style.
“The designs are inspired by living in the Pacific Northwest, “ said Gerst. “ I wanted to celebrate our culture and the arrival of Spring when we all get on our bikes, get out and explore and enjoy all the nature around us.”
The multi-disciplinary art director and designer who runs a small design agency named Option-G, developed the four unique graphics from his own original paintings reflecting iconic PNW symbols in nature including animals such as bears, foxes and hummingbirds. Gerst’s artistry shines through in each tee as he uses geometric shapes to piece together each graphic, creating a retro-modernist feel. Simplicity is interwoven with intricacy in each design as a classic woodsy scene and totem poles round out the collection.
Manufactured in San Francisco (where all Bridge & Burn’s tees are born), the tees are incredibly soft and keep getting better after each and every wear.
