Who are we?
Offend My Eyes is an LGBTQ run, independent clothing brand who specialise in colourful, creative clothing that can be worn by everybody, regardless of size, shape or gender.
We feature hand-drawn artwork printed in vivid, bright inks and custom make all of our clothing to make it really stand out. Because we never mass produce, all of our clothing is extremely limited and produced in small quantities. We try to never print the exact same design twice!
We have our own instantly-recognisable style and work alongside musicians, bands and influencial artists to produce official merchandise and limited editions within our communities.
We're mostly known for our incredibly bright colours and designs that start conversations wherever you go.
How it began
Have you ever heard the phrase: 'Keep staring and we'll give you something to stare at?' Well, we took that ethos to the next level. Frustrated with being labelled as 'weirdos' and fuelled by the negativity we received for looking different, we decided to embrace what made us strange and create clothing that was just as colourful as our personalities.
Offend My Eyes was born in 2013 when we screen printed one colour onto pre-made T-shirts and sold them to our friends. Fast forward six years, and we now offer over 50 different designs on over 35 products. A journey we are incredibly proud of and have devoted our lives to. We've honed our skills and perfected the art of sublimation - a special printing process that gives our clothing the incredibly bright colours without ever fading in the wash, and we also listened to feedback which called for a bigger range of sizes and extended our range to include 2XS up to 8XL
Our brand is all about being proud to be who you are. We don't just use that tagline to sell clothing, we believe it and live by it everyday and encourage our fans to do the same.
Meet the humans
Offend My Eyes is run by just two people: Jack and Nick.
Jack is a 33 year old artist from Doncaster, UK. He is responsible for hand drawing all the artwork, patterns, advertising and visual assets using his BA Hons degree in illustration and his experience and life as a transgender man to shape his creativity.
Co-founder Nick manages the day-to-day running of the business. From posting orders to managing stock, Nick is one busy person! You'll most likely see her managing our pop-up shop.
We both believe that everybody should have the right to be who they are and express themselves through the creative use of clothing. Fashion should be accessible and fun!
Every year, from May until November, we take our products round the UK's best festivals and events to meet our customers face to face and celebrate life together. We love meeting new people, so if you spot us come and say hello!
We aim to be the number one colourful clothing company in the world. From design to sale, our focus is making something unique that can be worn over and over again without ever losing its character.
In 2020 we're focusing on how we can improve our brand to become more sustainable and produce less waste whilst still maintaining our incredible quality.
Our customers are family to us, and so we take time to listen to your feedback and make improvements wherever we can. Thanks to you, our little company has become one of the most recognised queer clothing brands of 2019 - and we won't stop until we're at the top!
