Halftone Def vs. Billabong USA – Apparel Design


It’s not often you check your email on a Saturday afternoon and see a message from someone with an @billabong-usa.com email address but when it happens you immediately get stoked before you even open it. Also, it’s no secret that Grease and myself are Florida Boy’s born and bred and surfing and skating runs in our blood as thick as butter either. We both grew up surfing and skating and we still do both on a daily basis even in our “old man” status. I definitely don’t shred like I used to but Grease might even be getting better. Needless to say, we were born to do this type of work. It’s what we were brought up on and it’s what inspired both of us to get into design in the first place. I even still have my Billabong Pastel Corduroy Jacket Son!


The two shirts you see above are The Illuminati by Grease and The National by Tron. We actually designed 6 shirts in total but they only ended up taking two in the end but they were a couple of the favorites so we were pretty stoked about that. Anytime you can get to do even just one shirt for a label from your childhood you take it. Thanks to Rob and Brock from Billabong for the opportunity and we look forward to more in the future. Maybe well even show you the other four designs at some point if your super lucky! – TRON

The other good news is that you can actually BUY THESE SHIRTS RIGHT NOW on www.Billabong.com/us in four different color ways each! Both shirts are regular fit t-shirt with a softhand front screen print and pvc-free heat sealed neck label and 100% organic combed ringspun cotton! Oh Yeah, Get Em while they’re hot.
