1. Tell us, how did you start CINNIG?

I love graphic tees for as long as I can remember. I’m always on the lookout for a cool graphic design but couldn’t always find it. For years I collected in my head the most fantastic ideas to put on a tee.

And finally last year, I dared to take the step and bought the equipment: hobby plotter to start with, simple heat press, many colors flex-foil, Adobe Illustrator to create the designs (YouTube to learn it!), WordPress to set up a webshop and of course, a supplier who produces ethically made T-shirts. I didn’t want to print on budget T-shirts which most probably are produced in sweat shops. Imagine you are wearing a shirt that someone else has suffered for!

Let everybody have a favorite tee.
It brings instant joy.

I’m currently out of work because of the pandemic so I have a lot of time for building up CINNIG. I’m designing for my kids and boyfriend as well. That’s why I feel like a T-shirt mama.

2. What are your dreams?

My designs are playful, pure and positive. When they are printed on the supersoft feelgood T-shirts of Stanley / Stella they have the potential of becoming someone’s favorite tee. And that’s my mission. Let everybody have a favorite tee. It brings instant joy.
