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!
