An Interview with Oak City Collective
\ January 25, 2014
In 2013 Angie Scala and Jerrad Bement started The Oak City Collective (OCC) with the mission to create NC inspired apparel designed by local artists and designers. Today they have over 15 locally themed t-shirts and apparel designs that are sold at local events, on the OCC website and at DECO in downtown Raleigh. Current t-shirt designs include a design featuring a large 919, a NC barbeque tong and fork image, a shirt featuring some of the area’s local breweries, and a Raleigh neighborhood shirt that lists neighborhood names in a bold typeface.
Angie Scala, co-founder of Oak City Collective, shares the history, progress, and future of this local creative enterprise that combines design with local love. Later on current she, along with fellow OCC artist, Mitchell Beasly, discuss the creative process and inspiration of some of the current active artists of OCC.
