Nick Cocozza graduated from Duncan Of Jordanstone college of art in 2010, shortly after he went travelling before setting up camp in Berlin.
“I sold all my belongings on ebay before I moved to Germany, investing £300 in printing the first run of T-shirts. With a lot of support from mates, they sold really well and i just continued to invest the profit into new designs.” Nick Cocozza
Shortly after the first run of T-shirts got printed, Nick teamed up with a good mate “Sencer” over at “Digisin Apparel”, who now takes care of the printing side of things, giving Nick more time to concentrate on new designs and promotion
Within the past year the company has come so far, Last month We teamed up with the very talented photographer Rebecka Wolfe and had the first professional Bad Blood photo shoot in Brighton. The photos will be made into a full online lookbook and will be online soon.
Skateboarders “Toby Shaw” and “Dean Robertson” have also become sponsors for Bad Blood and will be representing the clothing in their new Skate video coming out in December 2012.
“The company is still growing but its an extremely exciting time, what started off as a small idea to make a few T-shirts has rapidly become a new and exciting clothing company that is gaining worldwide recognition.”
