Austin Babbitt is an American creative, best known for his eponymous clothing line, began his creative journey by designing a single t-shirt. Since then, his clothing brand has become a worldwide name, being worn by musicians and rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign. A poignant moment of Babbitts career was the design and sale of fake Life Of Pablo merchandise at a New York pop-up, which was supported by Kanye West himself as well as 3,000 streetwear fans.
Since then Babbitt has created a number of iconic pieces, that are streetwear gold dust, from his masks to his mystery boxes, the new collection sold out in moments.
It is a pleasure to work with Austin and his team.

Continuing with the success of their very popular workwear range, JCB are ever evolving, adapting and re-engineering some of their styles to reflect a changing market place and customer demands. Recently, we have seen workwear translated into street style, by the likes of Carhartt, and JCB are not being left behind.
The stylish JCB workwear range transfers easily from the traditional workplace to the outside world and has proven to be a popular leisure wear choice. Not only are JCB striving to remain up-to-date with trends, they continue to provide the highest quality products, placing emphasis on comfort and durability, which is well reflected in their choice of branding product.
Recently JCB teamed up with Dot2dot branding to create durable yet stylish leather patches, the perfect finish for their new ranges. The heat pressed real leather patches will be stitched on the outside of garments such as camo trousers, a print that has seen a massive revitalisation this Summer and into Autumn/Winter collections alike. Again, exemplifying their dedication to workwear, alongside style.

As a self-trained chef Maxine Thompson was accustomed to long hard days in the kitchen, but it seems her trousers were not. When working in Tasmania in 2013, Thompson found that she could not find a pair of trousers that were cool, comfortable and durable enough to withstand 14 hours of physically demanding work a day. Her, and other female chefs were restricted to kitchen supply store baggy trousers, or jeans that would bleed colour into their chef whites, the crotch would split and buttons would pop off. So, Thompson took matters into her own hands…
As of February his year Thompson officially launched PolkaPants, the ‘40s-inspired high-waist, slim-fit trousers for female chefs around the world. Made from 97 percent cotton, which is hard wearing yet breathable, and 3 percent stretch for that much needed movement alongside super high definition damask woven labels developed with us at Dot2dot Branding, she has provided the ultimate in practical trousers.
However, their benefits do not end with practicality. PolkaPants provide the chance to bring style into the famously hard-work environment that is the restaurant kitchen. The trousers come in black, houndstooth, and of course the signature polka-dot print, created by screen-print, thus every pair is entirely unique. Although the line has only been available since February, Thompson has amassed a loyal following from the likes of Jemma Wilson (Crumbs and Dollies), Chef Gizzi Erskine and of course, the Dot2dot Branding team. We are currently working on some rustic taffeta broad loom labels for her new range, and we couldn’t be more excited to be involved.

The weather cautions Autumn as it trickles down the Dot2Dot Branding office windows today. It forecasted sunshine, however, Vladimir Nabokov taught us not to be angry with the rain, as it simply doesn’t know how to fall upwards. A positive approach to the fall in the weather must be assumed, so we decided to explore the colour trends that are emerging for your Autumn/Winter 2015 collections.
This season displays a knit of neutral, achromatic tones punctured with bold colour statements that reflect the vivid moorland tones surrounding the Dot2Dot office. For the first time we are seeing a truly unisex colour trend, with a string of colours that are innately wearable for both men and women, and this collision of tones results in an androgynous, sophisticated and wearable palette, that will carry any collection to distinguished accomplishment.
The importance of neutrals continues to evolve throughout the season, with Pantones such as Desert Sage and Stormy Weather allowing designers to create unobtrusive and timeless pieces. A combination of luxurious fabrics in knits and leather, and organic tones envelopes us in the secure arms of nature. Deep, dusky blues will add intrigue and replace harsh black tones, yet your AW palette does not end on a neutral note…
Inspired by the flora of Autumn, and seen in Versace and Armani AW15 collections, layering heather purples and Pantones such as Cashmere Rose result in an optimistic and bold interpretation of the season, that is enchanting for both male and female lines. It becomes apparent that this season all encompasses delicate beauty with splashes of playfulness, yet is undefined by gender.
We pride ourselves in the diversity of our products, reaching large demographics from around the globe. However, we also pride ourselves on the work we do here in the UK, notably, the work we do that aids change and progression for the lives of you and I. Behind all of our products there is a story, a reason, a history, and having an understanding of this is an extremely important element of the development of products, and recently a particular batch of pin badges for the NHS caught our eye, and made us think…
The NHS was born out of a long-held ideal that good healthcare should be available to all, regardless of social standing, wealth and age; and it is these principles remain at it’s core. Yet, like all companies, brands and establishments, the NHS is in constant progression, striving to attain faster, more efficient and a better quality of healthcare for all of its patients. Many of us would assume that these progressions take place in a London office, however, we were surprised to learn that it is the youths of our country that are influencing change in one of the worlds largest workforces, via the NHS Youth Forum.
Comprising of 20 Young People recruited from all over the country and linked in to a Facebook network of hundreds more young people, the NHS Youth Forum aims to provide a voice for young people. The Young People will work with NHS England, Public Health England and Department of Health to work in partnership to improve the services for young people. The young people of the NHS Youth Forum aim to understand the NHS and then identify key issues that they could assist the NHS with, reducing stigma relating to mental health, signposting to sexual health services and critically enhancing communication between young people and health care professionals. The Youth Forum is keen to address the ambiguity that exists regarding the rights and responsibilities of young people, and developing resources by young people, for young people, and the Dot2Dot Branding Team were proud to be involved in such an influential and worthy process.
Heatwave on and TGI Friday! We're feeling your pain. I can see the team repeatedly gazing out of the window, staring longingly at the pub across the road, that both handily and unfortunately stares back. It's perfect weather for a cider... a Mortimer's Orchard Cider.
From the Westons Cider Mill in Hereforshire, Mortimer's Orchard is rich in tradition and rich in flavour . Their fresh sparkling medium-dry cider is produced with 100% fresh apple juice from English orchards...So one of your five-a-day, right? Its crisp, its fruity and its refreshing, the perfect beverage for a Summer's day. We love it so much, that we recently helped out Mortimer's Orchard to recreate their legendary silent disco in the heart of Taste of London festival in Regent's Park, and they smashed it.
Their presence on Instagram and Twitter was unavoidable, with festival goers using #silentselfie in a bid to be the best silent groover. This disco was not discriminatory, no-one was too old or too young to get down to the cheesy music, and for many it was their first ever silent disco. With hundreds of hashtags, pictures and videos Mortimer's Cider had the entire festival silently pumping after indulging in some of the finest food London has to offer and we were proud to be involved.
