Kid A!

Recently, i got an amazing opportunity to start working with a company that goes by the name of "Kid A".
Let me start off by saying, they are a great! I am so excited to have been able to work with them! Be sure to check out there website at http://www.kid-a.ca/home/ 


Planet Koda: To start off, What’s your name? And what is your brands name?
Kid A: Hello Dakota, it’s good to hear from you. To answer your question our brands name is KID A.  As for our actual names, we prefer to keep it anonymous. 

How did you come up with your brands name, and when did you start your company? 
The letter A is predominant in both of our legal names and our nick names.
We had the idea for the KID A label in early 2008 but did not officially launch until late 2008.

What inspired you to get into the clothing/streetwear business, and to start KID A Apparel? 
There is a short answer to this question that we posted in our ABOUT page but we have always been into skateboarding and street culture.

Truly, as long as we can remember, we have always had a deep desire for the best clothing. We would hit up countless stores to look for that perfect t-shirt or pair of jeans. We would critique every piece that we saw, saying how it would look better if it was cut differently or if the design on the shirt was a little bolder or offset. Over time the idea just kept coming back to us that if we had our own line, we would make the most amazing clothes and that’s how we started.  



Where do you guys set up shop?
We are located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  



How Many People Run Kid A?
KID A consists of a two man team.

Where do you find inspiration for your designs? What’s the process in creating a shirt? 
We grew up skateboarding are inspired by the skate scene and the people and culture that surround it. There is a deep passion for old movies, and music of all types. We both love to travel and feel at home backpacking as much as we do in Edmonton. A lot of our ideas have stemmed from our travels and our experiences from around the globe.

The creating process starts with an idea that we may have gotten from anywhere. We take the idea sketch it out first, tweak it, and then make a digital version.
 

Do you have any goals, or upcoming plans for Kid A?
New shirt designs are always on our minds.
In the future we would like to launch a series of skateboard decks.




Personally, What are some of your favorite brands?
Stussy, Maiden Noir, addidas, HUF, Original Fake.  


Do you print your own shirts, or just design them and have them printed?
We have them printed. In the future we would like to buy our own printing machines and warehouse to print our shirts but right now we just can’t afford it. 

Since the 1st day you started KID A, have you come away with any memories or funny stories?
When you start you have no idea if anyone other than yourself is going to like your clothes. After we launched some time passed and we got an order from Australia. We couldn’t believe that someone on another continent would be walking the streets with our shirt on their back. The feeling is indescribable.
