TOP 10 THURSDAY – 10 FAVORTIE 8291 DESIGNS

8291 is the design team of myself and Christian, we started together working on merch for Manifesto and from there we were able to do small pieces or projects together or seperatley as 8291. We’re about to debut our newest Notauriuos Collection and it had us looking back at some of our favorite pieces we’ve done over the years. Below you will find our 10 favorite designs we’ve done. Most during our time at Manifesto and other pieces along the way that lead us to where we’re at right now. Take a look at some of our faves, we chose to call it favorites over best because although we’re proud of all the work we’ve done the goal is to always get better and evolve. So I don’t think we’ll ever have a best of.

One of the 1st Notaurious pieces was this Made to Order Collaboration with Heartbeats T.O. The inspiration came from when I was in the Bay Area the same time as Drake’s “0 to 100” came out.
