The Elementary Project is on a mission to raise funds for schools across the country – and adding some fun style to your child’s closet while we’re at it!
The first collection features playful hand-drawn shirt designs that encourage kids to show off what they love – stand proud, mathletes! 50% of profits will go towards funding education programs through DonorsChoose.org, an incredible organization that provides direct impact in public schools, with a focus on giving all students the same opportunities.
Along with our friends at mimoYmima, a design studio in Brooklyn, we set off to create a collection of shirts inspired by young kids’ curiosity and love of learning. Science, Reading, Math and Art are featured with whimsical illustrations that invite a second look.
The idea for The Elementary Project stemmed from a sketch created by my 7-year-old son Nico, who is equally obsessed with all things science and art and has acted as a sort of associate creative director during the design process. Check out the hand-drawn sketches that became the final designs:
The designs are screen printed in Brooklyn, using water based inks, on super soft 100% cotton tees. They’re available in sizes 6, 8 and 10 – exclusively on Brooklyn Makers. So, what’s your pick? Science Rocks, Art Imagines, Math Rules or Reading Inspires?
The Elementary project tees are not available online anymore. If you’re interested in purchasing one, please contact us.
