Living Local Cap
From Nish Tees & Living Local, Peterborough
We're all living local much more than ever before, so this summer, show your pride for Peterborough & The Kawarthas in this cool cap! It has been printed in Peterborough by James Hodgson of Nish Tees. James has owned and operated Nish Tees since 2015, but has been a textile screen printer since 1998. James is also Indigenous, which he says, explains the business name. Nish is short for Anishinaabe, which is the word the Ojibway people use to refer to themselves, he tells us. This translates to “people who live the good way” and it's the foundation for his business model.
Meanwhile, the evergreen illustration is thanks to local artist Megan Ward. She is based in Peterborough, where she established her practice after graduating from OCAD University (Toronto) in 2012 with a BFA in Drawing & Painting. The final year of her program was completed at OCADU’s studio in Florence, Italy. She works primarily in oils, but she also makes frequent use of acrylics, drawing materials, collage, and digital processes.
Living Local's logo, along with this adaptation, was designed by Joanne Ward of Beeline Design and Communications in Peterborough. With more than 25 years' experience, Joanne has a special interest in serving small businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
Thank you to this talented team for helping us love local in new ways!
