An Interview with Tyler Way: Fashion Artist, Designer & Innovator

Posted by Tara Zanzig on Wed, Oct, 03, 2012 @ 08:10 AM

Recently, I had the great fortune of meeting Tyler Way, artist/designer of the TWAY Collection, and co-founder of [Fashion Has Heart]. Sharprint was printing Relentless, a t-shirt in The Corporal Hoffman Series that is a part of Threadless Causes. He stopped by the shop to take some photos of the printing. The t-shirt design is part of a much bigger project, [Fashion Has Heart] (with partner Michael Hyacinthe), that pairs an artist with a veteran to share his or her story through design. When I meet people doing incredible things, I always like to learn more about what they're doing, who they are, and how they got into it. I hope you enjoy the interview, and be sure to check out the short video at the end of the blog.

Your home page bio says you graduated college - what was your degree in? Do you feel your degree/education has attributed to your success?

I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Advertising & Public Relations and a minor in Entrepreneurship. College was a big growth spurt for me. I was finally on my own and felt like I had to start from scratch with my life. That was when I started custom-designing shoes in my dorm room and taught myself the Adobe design programs. My "outside of the classroom" education pushed my "inside the classroom" education very well, and vice versa.
