Behind the Design: Refuse to Lose

“Results? Why, man, I have gotten lots of results! If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward.” Thomas Edison

Cold World-Refuse to Lose

Design description: Folding in the pursuit of what you deserve should never be an option. Those who have ever achieved anything great didn’t care about the bumps in the road; they only knew that the sacrifice was well worth the outcome. So get hungry, roll up your sleeves and transcend the masses in the pursuit of what’s rightfully yours!

I’ve always had somewhat of an unrelenting attitude towards the things I want in life. I was that kid that lived and breathed what I was into whether it was music, sports or skating without a care of what anyone else thought. Not much has changed these days and I guess you could say that the drive has certainly intensified. I don’t know about you but I see a lot more talkers then doers out there and it does not surprise me that people are so unhappy and apathetic these days as a result. Hard work and determination are two ingredients to a beautiful creation if you choose to mix them. This is the essence of this piece.

Design wise, this is our first piece that incorporates both graphic design and hand drawn tattoo styles. The centerpiece was important as it is to symbolize the story. I chose a single candle to represent independence while the coffins and spiderwebs stand for time.
