The Corporal Hoffman Series pairs wounded U.S. military veterans & active servicemen/women each with an established artist/designer. Together the two individuals collaborate to share that hero’s story through the medium of art & graphic design. The result of their work is artistically silkscreened onto a Threadless t-shirt to become a wearable work of art that carries a significant story with it. This [FHH] project also includes each of the 5 Heroes working with footwear designers from Bates to custom-design their own military-inspired boot that aids to further tell their story through the medium of fashion.
This project fills the void between the military world and the creative community. By bringing the two parties together to utilize the talents of the Artist in order to share the powerful story of the Hero, it serves as a celebration of our freedoms by the those who sacrificed for them & by those who benefit from them.
