Brando Corradini: NoMade Clothing
“My personal projects are nearly always research and experimentation projects. I pick a topic, research the content, and most of this work happens in the editorial field,” Brando said. For him, there is a clear division between his personal and his commercial projects. He prefers the freedom of creativity that he can express with his personal projects, "In fact, very often I'm told: they don't seem to be made by you, it's kind of like you have a split personality."
Brando told us about a project, "Phillip Windly Kim", commissioned to him by the creative director of the New York-based design studio Sundae School. For an exhibition at the Sylvia Wald & Po Gallery, he was tasked with the theme: “What are you doing at 4:20pm?” Having carte blanche for this project, he decided to use a combination of 3D techniques along with some of his own typefaces: The already mentioned Lil Thug and the Shawty typefaces. "At the center of the poster there is an image of a bubble that ideally represents myself, when I create and isolate myself from the world around me."
"My desire is to create something that you don't see around" Brando said. From undertaking his own brand to his experimental posters utilizing digital elements, Brando still seems to be experimenting with the tools at his disposal. He joked: "It's about always improving myself to be remembered and recognized around the world, and maybe have a Wikipedia page."
