Interviewing Zach, founder of Yung N Savage
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
My name is Marc Russell and I was raised in a super poor community inside of Flint, Michigan. I’ve spent years pursuing a career in the Music industry which has lead me to working with local and big name artists around the country. I produce, write, perform and do visual effects for many artist, including myself.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
I came up with the idea for YungNSavage Clothing after decades of being entrenched in Hip Hop culture and fashion. I wanted to make Edgy Urban designs that really caught the eye, and at the same time felt good to wear. I had dealt with a bunch of small companies in the past that either didn’t have the quality of print I wanted or the same ol’ T-shirts everyone else was selling, so I decided to put my artistic spin on something that would instantly stand out and always feel good to wear. I didn’t just want to make shirts I wanted to make people’s favorite shirts.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
If YungNSavage Clothing was a person he/she would be a Leader formost and never follow. They would stand out in a crowd and be the life of any party. They would Know what society expected but never conform to the rules. They would do whatever to survive…and look good doing it.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words:
Edgy, Comfortable, and LOUD
For how long have you been selling T-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
Even tho I’ve been designing and working with graphics for years, YungNSavage actually just launched our Online store less then two weeks ago with five T Shirt designs in our first collection. The only horror stories I’ve had so far is some minor issues with the website, but nothing major. Any advice I could o would be in the starting stages of a brand (seeming how I just started) and it would be to just make sure that your heart is in it, just like anything else. If you don’t have a passion for this, then I can see it getting tedious very quickly. There’s lots to do just to get the designs and store up, let alone the challenges of marketing and promoting your products. Research and read everything you can, as far as any other advice – Im looking for some myself!
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
YungNSavage T-Shirts are made to be noticed. From the colours we choose to the Prints we decide on every shirt is designed to let people know who you are instantly. An Uncensored Product of your environment with an unmatched fashion sense. Mostly bright colors and edgy concepts – YungNSavage Clothing tells the world who you are…before you say a word and that’s why people should be interested in YnS.
