Hello! I'm Dabito, but you can call me Dab. I was born in the heart of Chinatown, Los Angeles. I majored in Fine Arts, with a focus in printmaking and photography at UC Santa Cruz. After graduation, I moved back to Los Angeles where I took on a brief internship at a litho printing company in the Arts District. We printed for now big-time artists like Chris Johanson and Shepard Fairey. After that, I worked for April Greiman at Made In Space, a graphic design consultancy for a year. It was around that time when I started blogging about my thrifty adventures and that's when Old Brand New was born.
I turned Old Brand New into a design studio about five years ago. The meaning behind the name is pretty straight forward—it's all about mixing the old and making it brand new! Also, check out our New York Times bestselling book, The New Bohemians.
