Get Better Clothing
Margate, UK -- Get Better is a contemporary illustration collection founded in 2010 by Alex Foster. Alex works from his home studio on illustrated products, prints, clothing and commissions.
Alex started printing t-shirts in his first year at university in London to share an original take on illustration, making it more accessible and wearable. This led to him forming the products into a brand and building up the collections with printed tees, sweaters and tote bags.
As well as pitching to boutiques, exhibiting at galleries and displaying at markets, Alex has worked with a variety of clients on a range of projects. These include Hallmark+M&S cards, Tote bags for Talented, books for The Poetry Society and the Folkestone triennial, as well as Illustrated area maps and posters for Totally Thames displayed on the London Underground and National Rail stations.
Get Better places a great importance on being eco-friendly, which is why all the screen printing uses water based inks, and the packaging is 100% recyclable card. Continental Clothing have been carefully chosen as suppliers because they produce organic products. This makes it more expensive to produce, but creates a higher quality product.
Now in its fourth year, Get Better has a new collection, number four. The range features hand printed and sewn clothing, as well as art prints and stationery. These are all inspired by nature, animals and maps- using faux naïve and fun illustrative styles. Check out their new collection on their website.
