In this series, we meet the designers behind the POOL brands for a special look into what it takes to be an independent designer.

SPOTLIGHT ON: DeadBuryDead

1. Tell us about yourself! What is your brand's product? My name is Brandon Grbach, I am the creative director for DeadBuryDead.  We are from Pittsburgh, PA and we make shirts and accessories.

2. What sets your product apart from the crowd? Details.  Our collections go the extra mile, whether it's hidden prints, custom packaging or free stickers.  It's all about the customer's experience.

3. As independent designers, how did you get into the business? I dropped out of college, bought a screen press and Photoshop. I started small and failed a lot.  But 7 years later, it's still the best job in the world.

4. Any words of wisdom for aspiring designers? Be patient. Anything worthwhile takes a lot of time.  Build your brand on what you believe in and keep moving forward.
