About Us

Hero Heads is a clothing brand with unique, hand-drawn designs of inspirational people, allowing you to ‘wear your heart on your tee’. We contribute 10% of profits to a charity related to the hero's cause. In order to create high quality clothing with artistic designs that last, we screen print with the best inks on high-end fabric that is super comfortable, resilient, and produced responsibly.

I'm Colin, and came up with the concept by noticing a lack of representation of inspirational legends on apparel with classic, portrait-style designs. By designing, printing, and offering them, we hope to empower you to project positivity out to the people and world around you. 

We strive to be socially conscious and give back. 10% of profit of each and every design go to a charity that hero either supports, did support, or would have likely supported based on their cause(s). For example, the Nelson Mandela designs go to I Am We Are, a non-profit dedicated to creating a world where all youth are socially engaged, globally aware, and economically free. Also, our tees come from Next Level, which has a strict Code of Conduct for Manufacturers - and has super comfortable and resilient tees.

We ask our supporters who they would like designs of for tees. And we listen. In our first month both new designs of Nina Simone and Harvey Milk came directly from requests and feedback. And we will keep listening to your requests for the heroes you want to wear unique designs of. We have worked very hard designing the art for these tees, and greatly appreciate all of the positive feedback. Please let us know, though, if you have any suggestions. 

Finally, thank you all so much for your support. From family to artists to friends to new acquaintances - your positivity and encouragement  have brought this to life the past few months. 

We are located in Washington DC, and you can find us at a variety of markets and festival. See our VISIT US page to see where we will be in the coming months. Follow us on our Hero Heads facebook page or Instragram to see new design releases, and for market and festival updates. 

If you have any questions, or requests for hero designs, please email us at support@heroheads.com
