Angela & Co’s local lovin’ tees grew out of a little project called Oaklandish, which was proof positive that a simple, well-designed t-shirt can rally people and build city identity in a major way. The expanded line is, of course, meant to evoke the same warm, fuzzy pride of place. The challenge is to take local icons and represent them in a new and artistic way. What they go for is a little somethin’ they call the “second read”—they slip little insider surprises into the design, so when you give them a closer look, a that’s-my-hood chuckle awaits.
