"Local 602" Tees by Dojo Collective

When the design minds behind Dojo Collective joined forces to support a local youth program, they knew their focus would be community.

The local collective is committed to design and to supporting the younger, developing design community through education and programming.

Dojo, headed by graphic designers Dave Bjorn and Mark Dudlik, launched a campaign to raise funds for TumbleTees, a skills development program through the Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development in downtown Phoenix.

TumbleTees is a screen printing shop that employs 14-to-24-year-olds who are homeless in downtown Phoenix. Participants in the program learn screen printing and small business skills. The goal is to foster creativity while providing a transition into economic self-sufficiency and a safe source of income.

The "602" shirts are designed to reflect the local community as well as the collaboration necessary to support successful younger generations.

The shirts are currently sold in limited and special editions (with Dojo Collective print number tags). Limited edition shirts are part of a special run of only 100 printed, and are $30 with $24 going toward TumbleTees and special edition are printed by Brand X T-Shirts for $25 with $8 going toward the program.

For more information and to order the shirt, check out the Brand X website. Read more about the Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development here.
