Formed in 2007, the founding members of GAR–DE are a diverse group of young designers, artists, and producers who find inspiration in their urban terrain. Their shared appreciation of streamlined aesthetics, the cultural complexity of their surroundings, and a distinctive sense of humor influences the collective–s work. By collaborating with talented artists in different fields, GAR–DE hopes to bring an idiosyncratic perspective to design that is both subversive and considered.
