Brutal By Design

What began years ago as a sketch in a pizza shop in the last year has grown into dare we say…a movement?  We didn’t found Brutal Face so much as it found us.  Starting a clothing brand was never something that we ever dreamed of or was even on our radar, yet here we are, fully invested into what has become not just a hobby but a way of life.  

The idea behind the brand is pretty simple; self love and in turn love for others.  We want people to embrace their true selves and show it to the world, because that’s where real connections are formed, and connections are what make the world go round.  Brutal by Design has served as a platform for us to meet and collaborate with so many amazingly talented and unique individuals.  It has become about something much bigger than clothing; it’s about having honest conversations, sharing ideas and being who we were born to be no matter what risks we have to take to get there.  Join the movement and show the world your Brutal Face!
