In 1989, Phenomenon Designs was started as a side business while I was working at a t-shirt shop originally making pre-print BMX shirts. I primaraily did shirts for my various extra curricular activities, (BMX, bands and eventually, racing) In the early 90's it was a great way to help fund getting started racing microstocks and while I took a break from racing in the mid 90's, I continued doing side jobs for a wide range of customers while working for various screen printing companies. After finding a home as art director at Echo Ink custom screen printing, I focused on doing t-shirt design work again in the racing field and also did design work for the USTA and Extreme Championshp Wrestling. Having always been into racing and art, it was just a natural progression to gravatate to lettering and pinstriping.
