Q Design and Play – Two Heads Are Better Than One
Q is a modular font that includes uppercase base layers and attachments that can be combined to produce layering effects. It also comes with physical drafting stencils that contain the basic shapes needed to construct letters in different styles.
Q Design and Play was founded by Art Somboonsitti and Ekkapoom Treechairusmee, who both graduated as graphic designers. They have a pure love for design that is apparent in their clothing line.
Founded in 2010
Two heads are better than one and Q Design and Play really embodies that with their collections. Founded in 2010 by two Thai designers, Art Somboonsitti and Ekkapoom Treechairusmee, their brand produces street-urban wear that comes straight from the heart. The pair’s love for fashion has allowed them to quickly rise in popularity both in Thailand and abroad.
The FW18 collection is equal parts minimalist army gear and graphic architecture. It features a range of leather waist bags, harem-esque tailored pants and unique utility jackets. The line also pays homage to cultural stories of UFOs abducting farmers and their livestock.
The fonts come with physical drafting stencils that can be used to construct the capital letters in various styles. The system allows for almost unlimited combinations, just like a creative toy such as Lego or Meccano. In addition to the base fonts, Q also includes a set of attachments that can be added as separate layers.
Designed by Art Somboonsitti
Designed by Thailand’s young blood designers, Praphat Somboonsitti and Ekkapoom Treechairusmee, Q Design and Play is a street-urbanwear brand that combines their love of design and fashion. Art, with his bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, and Ekkapoom, with her adoration of fashion, put their minds together to create this unique clothing line.
Their designs are based on real life experiences and their latest collection is titled Mars Plastic. This collection uses neoprene and PU leather to reflect the feeling of stationery wares. The collection also features harem-like tailored pants and unique utility jackets.
This FW18 collection demonstrates the contrasting nature of the brand’s style, with its military-inspired silhouettes and graphic architecture. The collection also includes a Tarzan-like boy version with his male bag over his chest and long black silky season less coats. This collection is bold, yet still accessible for modern men who take their style seriously. It is definitely a must-have for the stylish men out there.
Designed by Ekkapoom Treechairusmee
Founded in 2010, the brand has grown from denim to streetwear staples like tees, caps, and track pants. It also has an extensive line of accessories including shoes, bags, and even face masks. Its designs are known for incorporating Thai elements and folk culture into its pieces as well as parodying trademark logos such as Nike and Stussy with a local twist. It is stocked at various retailers in Thailand and also ships worldwide through its online store.
Designed by Praphat Somboonsitti and Ekkapoom Treechairusmee, Q Design and Play’s menswear collection is bold and beautiful. Their 2015 collection is titled “Mars Plastic”, and the designers wanted to capture the feeling of stationery ware and plastic clothing. The result is a unique and whimsical take on ready-to-wear. The brand’s motto “We Design You Play” reflects this creative vision.
Designed for Everyone
Q Design and Play designs clothing that works for everyone, whether they have different sensory abilities or habits. By combining solid clothing silhouette structures with neoprene and PU, the designer wants to make their pieces feel like stationery wares that are casually cool. This concept is similar to Mollerup’s ‘multisense wayshowing’, which means that the design is meant to be seen by people of all ages and abilities, at different times and in various environments.
