RAW Artists Charlotte: Reflect (2.4.19)
In shocking news, we’ve been selected to be a part of the RAW Artists Charlotte showcase ‘Reflect’ on February 27. RAW is an independent arts organization that invites local artists from a variety of genres (visual art, music, photography, fashion, etc.) to come and showcase their work. We’re real excited to be a part of it but we need some help!
For us to participate we need to sell some tickets. Attending the event is a great opportunity for us to showcase our work to a ton of local artists and community members, and each ticket sold helps make that happen. Pre-sale tickets purchased though our RAW profile are only $22.50 ($30 at the door). Not only will that ticket help support us in participating, but it will get you into an awesome event to see some of the best local artists and music that Charlotte has.
IF YOU CANT MAKE THE SHOWCASE IN PERSON YOU CAN STILL PURCHASE A TICKET TO SUPPORT OUR PARTICIPATION.
As a way to say thank you to anyone that buys a ticket, we’ll pick a couple random winners and give away some free stuff from the site. Also if you buy a ticket we will buy you a drink or two for being awesome.
The event is on Wednesday, February 27th at 7pm at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC. If you have any questions just let us know!
TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED AT THE LINK BELOW:
Crewnecks and Dad Hats (1.27.19)
We’ve been working on getting these released for a couple months now, but crewnecks and dad hats are now for sale! We’ve kind of expanded the frnk ‘brand’ a bit over the last few weeks by adding the reversed face logo and the ‘Frnk’ script, so it’s cool to see them in the flesh on a couple of new products. The crewnecks are legit very comfortable and the dad hat is your classic adjustable cap with front embroidery and a buckle closure in the back.
It’s still cold out so go buy one and stay warm while reppin’ the brand. We appreciate you.
Carolina Hurricane Relief (9.21.18)
For those that don’t know, the FRNK Design Co. loves North Carolina. We lived in Chapel Hill from 2013 to 2016, and have now officially relocated to Charlotte, NC for good (we did not like living in NYC). We’ve moved around a bunch but have always had a special spot in our hearts for NC, so seeing everything that happened with the hurricane last week was awful. We were living in Houston when hurricane harvey hit and saw first hand the damage that caused, and know how difficult the recovery process will be. We have friends that live in Wilmington and New Bern and other eastern Carolina towns and we want to help in the relief efforts. It probably won’t be much, but every bit counts.
For the next month, we’ll be donating a portion of profits from all of our Carolina prints and t-shirt orders to the Julius Peppers Hurricane Relief Fund, which provides relief to victims of the storm.

Go Heels. Go Frank. Go America. Go North Carolina.
Supporting The Sato Project (8.6.18)
Ever since we launched this whole thing we knew we wanted to do some good and give back in some way. Over the past month or so we had been looking around to find a local charity or organization that was really doing something awesome, and doing something that we felt we would be proud to get behind and support. Then one day somebody sent us a dm on Instagram about this dog named Finn (KeepingFinn IG). I can't remember who sent it but they thought it looked like a mini Frank. We noticed that Finn was called a 'sato' (a Puerto Rican term for 'street dog') and that led us to discovering The Sato Project.
The Sato Project is a Brooklyn-based organization 'dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs from Puerto Rico'. They specifically spend a lot of their focus on an area known as 'dead dog beach,' where people just abandon their dogs. They rescue them, test and treat them, and fly them back to NY to foster, and finally to get adopted. Finn was one of those dogs, and for those that don't know, Frank was also a rescue dog in Ithaca.
We're donating a portion of our profits to help support The Sato Project. They're an awesome organization, and if you want to learn more about what they're doing you can check them out here, or if you'd like to donate visit TheSatoProject.org/Donate
