Like every Tuesday, here we are again with the latest episode of our most popular series, #TshirtTuesday! Where we feature up-and-coming personalised T-shirt brands and interview the designers behind them.
This time around we bring you Amoy and her brand Capital POP. There are a lot of clothing lines out there that try to satirise the current political climate, but they hardly ever have sharp graphics such as this one.
I hope you enjoy our newest #TshirtTuesday!

Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
This is a partnership. My name is Amoy Sobers and my partner is Carlon Thibou. We are from Brooklyn NY. I am a Director at L’Oreal USA and he is a graphic designer on the side and client specialist at an advertising agency,
For how long have you been designing T-shirts?
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
My brand is Capital POP and what makes it unique is that we approach our T-shirts in two different ways; literal and abstract. Literal would be our political and social commentary tees and abstract are our Visual Vice tees in which you have to dig a little deeper to figure out the meaning.
Describe your brand in three words
Literal. Inspire. Abstract.
