Done Creative started with a simple idea… create high quality apparel and products that give back to protect and improve the world we live in.
Started by Ian Adams, a professional designer & illustrator from Vancouver Island, Done Creative initially started as a side project. Ian saw a lot of companies that said they ‘gave back’ to their communities but always talked more than they acted, so Ian decided to take action and get things DONE in his own way. He decided to create a line of merchandise that would automatically donate a minimum of $1 from each product directly back to the communities that supported him. By combining his passion for design and knowledge of apparel manufacturing it seemed like an obvious solution.
Knowing he wanted to start by supporting environmental initiatives Ian began sketching ideas. Growing up in a small town on Vancouver Island, Ian was always surrounded by nature and wildlife, this quickly became the inspiration for his first designs. With only 3 designs, men’s and women’s shirts were printed and sales started happening. The feedback from the public and retailers was completely unexpected. Not only was there a positive reaction to the designs, the cause behind it seemed to resinate with everyone.
Today we continue to expand our online/retailer presence and our donations. But no matter how much we grow Done will always remain as a craft boutique shop: hand-made, socially-conscious and with the personal touch people have come to expect from us.
Thank you for your interest in Done Creative. I sincerely appreciate all the ongoing support from our family, friends, customers and retailers.
I started Done because I am a firm believer that everyone has the power to improve the community they live in and the environment that we all share. It doesn’t matter if you’re donating your time, skills or money, we all have the ability to make small improvements to the world around us. And whether or not you’re giving back in a direct way I hope you at least make an effort to be respectful to all the people, animals and natural wonders that surround us to help make the world we share a little brighter.
Together we can make a difference. It’s time to get creative and get sh*t DONE!
