Origami Ghost is the collaborative effort of Ricky Krieck and Colin Gilliam, two long-time friends who initially met when they attended first grade together. As fate would have it, twenty years later the events of their lives aligned in such a way that they were both ready for a new, creative project. That creative outlet turned out to be Origami Ghost.
Origami Ghost is a natural extension of Colin and Ricky’s passion for clothes and street culture. As such the brand features tees, hoodies, sweatshirt, hats, and more. The designs are infused with a healthy dose of Asian culture and popular iconography but are rendered through the lens of Colin and Ricky’s unique West Coast perspectives. As the name implies many of the designs also depict some kind of origami style image. Take for example the t-shirt named Crane or Lucky Cat.
These are great looking Origami style designs that feature popular Asian imagery. Another cool character is Charlie the Koi fish. Whether knocking back some Sake or just relaxing under an umbrella, Charlie looks like the original gangsta of good times. He gives a distinct style to any t-shirt or skateboard that he graces.
That’s just a small sampling of what Origami Ghost has to offer though. They’ve only been around for about a year and yet they’ve already cranked out some solid pieces. It’ll be exciting to see where Ricky and Colin’s creativity leads Origami Ghost next.
