One Kolor Designs (formerly Big Nose Little Dog) was created in 2003 by comedian/author Mario DiGiorgio to supplement his income between road gigs...
"Why kolor? That's stupid."
No, you're stupid. And "onecolor.com" was taken.
Some are snarky and dry. Some are inside jokes for other comedians. Some don't mean a thing. The only goal is to make them witty, interesting or vaguely subversive, but never embarrassing to wear. Low brow for the high brow.
And one way to cut back on tacky is the clean look of one-color images...simple, with a nod to my well-worn vintage tees.
All shirts are lovingly hand-printed to order with non-toxic, "no-feel" ink. Just wash 'em once in cold water.
You can also find OK Designs in a few brick and mortars:
Parts and Labour 1117 South Congress Ave. Austin, TX
A-Town 5502 Burnet Rd. Austin, TX
Prize 202 Colorado St. Austin, TX
Rala 323 Union Ave. Knoxville, TN
I'm also proud to say that the drummer from Green Day is a fan of one shirt in particular, and purchased it on his last trip through Austin. Pretty cool, I say.
One Kolor shirts have also popped up on VH-1's Best Week Ever, Friday Night Lights, and on some dude I saw at the Fleet Foxes concert at ACL.
That last one pleases me most.
