I've been freelancing recently which has been ace. Rather than just a 'yournamehere.com' domain I decided to have a bit of a brand. After all, if you're looking to hire a freelancer that has a solid understanding of brand voice, copywriting, and marketing - then you'd probably expect their own site to demonstrate some of those values. Would you not?
www.dropthicmic.digital as a brand, is the embodiment of what I want it to feel like when you see the results of my freelancing work. It's best described in GIF form I suppose. It is purposefully juvenile, arcane, self-indulgent and fatuous. Because you can spend all the money you like on the most incredible content for your brand only for some millennial to post a GIF of a cat which goes viral in hours. Embrace it. It's the internet.
When Printsome said that they'd sponsor some t-shirts then I thought it would be a great opportunity to get #DropTheMic out there.
For the t-shirts, I've gone for a 'Earth Positive' range because think they're values are rad. They are also 100% cotton which is better than all your other t-shirts you cheapskate. I also chose a longline style because I'm desperately trying to hold on to my youth in any way possible, but also as I get older I really don't care anymore and I quite like it. It's comfy. It's an internal coming-of-age struggle that really doesn't affect my ability to work. I promise.
Shirts are not available publicly although I could do a print run if you like them. Let me know in the comments. I'm wearing one now. Printsome kindly part-sponsored the creation of these shirts but this did not impact my critical evaluation. The 'Drop The Mic' design itself was commissioned from Kai Nodland.
