What We're Doing
International, man. Shipping shirt love all over the place... Flying Pork has shipped to 43 of our 50 states, and we have shipped abroad to Canada as well as far, far away to Japan and even Australia. Thanks to all for the outpouring of support we have received thus far.
The Flying Pork Apparel Co. (FPA) was officially co-founded by Nate Ward and Brad Lark in April of 2014, but the groundwork and various designs have been under development since September of 2013. In April of 2016, Brad took over sole ownership and proprietorship of FPA. The company still does its thing out of Cincinnati, because it's a pretty creative place.
A little more about Brad. Brad has gathered over 20 years of experience in design, illustration and motion graphics since graduating from University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning (DAAP), and still gets plenty of freelance work that utilizes all of this stuff... but when the day jobs are all done, he'll grab an evening gig as a live musician every now and then somewhere in the greater Cincinnati area, throwing down a solo acoustic show of guitar and vocals. Busy brain.
Flying Pork's inspiration comes from a collective desire to focus on the the simpler things in life... things that generate good vibes amongst you folks out there. T-shirts are but one time-tested vehicle that does this very thing quite well.
The designs you see here come out of what are often Guinness-fueled brainstorm sessions, and these ideas have neither ridden nor will they ever ride the coat tails of another entity's intellectual property. We prefer plain old inspiration and elbow grease, and there's a huge (and growing) idea list for Flying Pork to draw from, and we're very excited to eventually give it all over to all of our fans.
Flying Pork's future will involve increasing variety of products and services, purchasing better equipment to increase the efficiency of day-to-day operations, and building fun relationships with vendors and clients to enable the creation of intriguing apparel options and perhaps even some charming non-apparel items and accessories for all customers everywhere.
Thanks very much for your interest in The Flying Pork Apparel Company... we hope to see you often :) Oink.
