Dearest of dearest OZ friends, family and fellow supporters,
You might have noticed a lack of posts from our website, and we’d just like to assure you that we are still alive!
In fact doing quite well.
Over at the Ok Zebra offices we have been taking a closer look at our processes and have decided to restructure our releases and layout. This will give us time to focus as independent artists and designers which will benefit our development. What does this mean for the OZ collective? Stronger and better designs. We will continue to bring you our highest level of design which may manifest in different avenues, not solely restricted to apparel. New design releases will be shared sporadically and could be spaced out as little as 6 months to as much as 2 years apart. We will continue to feature available OZ swag online plus more in the near future!
We’re extremely excited for the progress of the Ok Zebra movement and our future personal projects. We look forward to seeing the collective evolve with our new artistry and your continued friendship.
Thank you to all that have supported us thus far – whether it was a high five, a sticker on your internet surfer, or a recent purchase of the latest hoodie. It’s all love and we’ll be sure to take it with us in these coming ventures!
Make sure to keep updated on our facebook page to receive any OK Zebra news.

We’ve wanted to release a line inspired by First Nations for quite some time and today I’m happy to present the Ojibwe Collection for Fall & Winter 2012.
Subtle native patterns and pieces such as the dream catcher and carved stones receive the Ok Zebra treatment to bring hints of urban culture. Each design features it’s own signature hand-drawn illustration to create a natural texture reminiscent of First Nations drawings.
This line was a lot of fun to create and we hope you’ll enjoy just as much as us .

It’s been almost a week since the gritty showdown that had over 20 beer pong teams battling for Ok Zebra swag, the #1 spot, and of course, sweet glory. With 4 pong tables, the action was in constant motion. Each matchup offered some of the most emotional wins, losses and most surprisingly, last cup redemptions!
In the end, three teams were left. Team K-Bay played valiantly but got cut short in the semi-finals taking third place. It was down to the final two, Jeff+Alex vs. Jesse+Anthony. By this time, the remaining teams had consumed a considerable amount of sunken shots. Both teams were glowing with confidence but it came down to the focus and precision of Anthony’s finishing shot! They climbed the ladder, got the swag, the glory and now hold the winners’ title. Until next year…
We’d like to send out a huge thanks to MOLSON BREWING COMPANY and a few people from the Ok Zebra Family:
Grant Roberts: Host/Organizer/Custom Table
Andrea Bertossi: Bartender/Merch
Matt McGuinness : Organizer/Molson Rep
Cam Schreiner: Host
Rachelle Beaty: Photographer
And of course to everyone who came out! Really hope to see you all again next year

Since the Osheaga lineup was released earlier this year, we knew this would be the perfect opportunity for Ok Zebra to reassemble in a city capable of handling the upcoming ruckus.
We created Limited Edition Osheaga Tanks with the custom Ok Zebra – Bear Mace font for the upcoming festivities. It’s always a blast when custom type is involved and this one was no different.
If you make it out to the festival this year be sure to come say Hi! Adventurers, pack your bags!

We’re really excited to reveal to you our first cut & sew! A collaboration with the crafty Miss D Humps brings a splash of colour to your wardrobe. With 3 different styles, you can find that custom-made match, just for you.
We took off on foot to Vancouver’s English Bay with our in-house photographer Megan, with hopes of finding a group that mirrored Ok Zebra’s values. We were warmly welcomed by everyone that we approached to be part of this season’s tanks. Big shout out to all our new friends! Thank you.
Check out the pictures below for a full look into the shoot!

Inspiration comes in many different forms and usually when your least expecting it.
A year ago I came across a small logo that I felt very passionate about but couldn’t quite stick how to showcase it in a different light. I ended up throwing in my library of pictures. Almost a year later, I decided to revisit the vault to find this inspirational quote sitting exactly where it was left. For some reason, a light bulb went off and the layouts and logos started pouring out.
* Weapons of Mass Creation is a designers’ haven founded by Jeff Finley (Design Guru). The original logo was created for the festival by Brandon Rike and continues to hold true. I recommend visiting the website or taking the trip to WMC if you get ever get a chance!

It’s been almost a year since Dirty Art Club compiled their debut album, Heavy Starch. They’ve been busy and with hard work comes the payoff. Phonosaurus recognized their psychedelic beats and invited the duo to be part of the team!
Phonosaurus Records are based in Montreal with roots spreading as far as Switzerland and France! Make sure to check their site out as they frequently update with artists’ updates and videos such as this first DAC live show. Enjoy the catchy beats synced with beautifully twisted visuals.

The Playoffs are here and we’re more than excited to welcome them back with open arms. There’s a hard long road ahead filled with cold pitchers, sauced hot wings and high fives all around. This truly is the one of the hardest times of the year . Enjoy the games and best of luck to your playoff team!

Young, wild and full of spirit, years of bottled creativity had unleashed itself with the thoughts of unifying like minds into a community. With heart in the east and soul on the west, the influences of both brought what you now see.
We thought we’d bring it back to the classics on this one and go back to the roots. Music! I’ve compiled this 3 Year Strong Mix hosted on 8tracks to show you our appreciation for all the support and our excitement for what’s to come. It’s a celebration!

A Fair for the Prosperity Campaign was hosted this past Sunday to raise funds for microloan clients. The fair presented many new faces, introductions and friends all while contributing toward a bigger cause. Regardless of the bone-cold weather and gray skies, many came out to view and purchase works from various artists and like-minded individuals were able to connect and relate with Ok Zebra.
This time around the featured photography comes from our new friend, Anders Kitson.
I shared a tent with the super rad James of The Sky Captain. His tees are one of a kind with custom hand-drawn elements. Quality!
James and I going on about silk screening and/or new creative ideas.
Even with drab weather, friends and visitors made the experience a successful day! Thank you to everyone who came by whether to support the campaign, bring delicious mocha lattes or just say hey!
