“Everything is Jake” is a saying from the early 1900′s which translates to everything is “fine” or “satisfactory.” Nick Kuchar is the talented artist who designed our "Vintage 1965" t-shirt design and the man behind "Everything is Jake" designs. We asked Nick to design a t-shirt that reflected our brand as well as our connection to Ventura, Ca. Nick did a great job of incorporating our favorite local surf spots into this now best selling design. We started with just t-shirts and added tanks and hoodies. 

A little about Nick...Nick is from Florida and received a degree in Industrial Design from Auburn University. He enjoys baseball statistics, listening to The Who, indecisiveness, air, and driving his VW bus. He does not enjoy splinters, cold weather, or sea monsters and is quasi-afraid of cold cuts. After graduating college, Nick worked for several years in the industry designing trade show exhibits along with interior displays and kiosks. Longing for the beach, he and his wife sold their house, quit their jobs and drove across the U.S. to the west coast, where they flew to Hawaii.

Nick is continually studying the use of colors, text, shapes and materials around him to further his knowledge of art and design. He currently lives on the island of O’ahu, Hawaii. We are looking forward to partnering with Nick again for some new winter 12' designs.
