Interviewing Edwin and James, founders of Rogue Whale
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
Rogue Whale was founded in 2016 by Edwin Towler and James Hadley. Ed and James are both design students at Loughborough University who quite like T-shirts and graphic apparel. Whilst Ed grew up in Africa and the Middle East, James was raised somewhere equally as exotic, The West Midlands. After 38 years of life experience, their true potential as specific T-shirt and graphic apparel designers was realised. Then, after a lot of
b ee r hard work, Rogue Whale was born.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
Our brand is Rogue Whale, its unique in the sense that its been made by two young British designers who simply love and enjoy making T-Shirts and clothing. Every design is a little bit of our passion.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
100% roguishly handsome and handsomely rogue. Would definitely have a whale of a time.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words:
Rogue. British. Design.
For how long have you been selling T-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
Right now we’ve been selling T-shirts for under a month, but between the two of us we’ve been practicing design for nearly two decades and counting. As for advice, we’d say… Have confidence and pride in your work – if you put the effort in, everything will fall into place.
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
Why should people be Interested in the brand? Simple, because every T shirt is unique to the Rogue Whale and all the designs are produced with 100% emphasis on quality, fuelled by passion for what we do. More than anything we just want people to enjoy wearing our tops as much as we do designing them!
