Direction of the NATIVE(X) brand for 2013

2013 marks a significant year in the evolution of the NATIVE(X) concept, and it’s the first time that I’ll be working on NATIVE(X) as a full-time commitment, not just as a side project.

NATIVE(X) will focus on three things:

Build out our art selection with additional artists
The goal of N(X) is to help artists reach a larger audience and our work with Nathaniel Wilkerson has validated that this concept works on a NW coast regional scale. So you’ll start to see the expansion of our online art gallery highlighting artists from around the country.

Sponsor two to three art classes
We’re continuing our work with Crow’s Shadow on the Umatilla Indian Reservation and working to extend our sponsored art classes to other tribes.

Develop an identifiable product
Ralph Lauren has its Polo Shirt. TOMS has its slip-on shoes. American Apparel has its tee shirt. Brooks Brothers has its dress shirts.
We’re working with manufacturers, artists, and accessory designers to create an entirely new line for 2013. We’ll keep you posted.
