Fennec Design is the collaborative effort of Joelle and Justin Arawjo, a multi-disciplinary project that includes print making, jewelry design, and textile work. The couple hand prints and crafts their own line of apparel, home goods, and jewelry available online and all over the country in small boutiques. With a combined 15 years of experience in professional screen printing and design they specialize in both fine art and commercial printing and branding. They pride themselves on using non-toxic, water-based inks, sweatshop-free apparel and environmentally conscious paper goods as the starting point for all of their work.
Rather than embracing a strict divisions of labor, they both enjoy the complicated and rewarding challenge of a truly collaborative process. Most printed pieces are drawn together, with each artist contributing elements to the overall collage design. Over time they have constructed a visual lexicon that draws inspiration from folklore and mythology, medical and scientific illustration, alchemical etchings, sacred geometry and early tattoo art. The compositions of pieces are informed by a penchant for geometry and gridding techniques culled from studying the history of textile design. Similarly jewelry pieces draw on the rich themes of natural form, symmetry, and the careful incorporation of mineral, botanical, and other organic elements.
