About / Transparency


Hello! :)

My name is Rob and I am the founder and independent artist behind Dark As Day.

A little about me...I grew up spending most of my days down at the local skatepark, Skating and drawing on my mate's boards and grip tape for fun, It was here I found my love for 'underground' cultures and art like skateboard graphics, Tattoo and graffiti.

I quickly realised I wanted to pursue my love for the art in these cultures and while I was painting skateboard decks and walls, I longed for new mediums to apply my artwork too and after struggling to find clothing on the high street that matched my aesthetic I decided id have a go at having some of my designs printed on t-shirts and that was it, I was hooked and Dark As Day was born.

From that first batch of t-shirts in my mum's kitchen to now 5 years down the line Dark As Day has its own art studio situated in the Lake District UK where I have brought all production in-house meaning that every item that is on the site is printed, embroidered and shipped by yours truly ensuring premium quality each and every time.

But I'm far from done, My goal is to expand and hire staff while producing new and exciting designs and garments to share with like-minded people all over the world.

Dark As Day is for the underground types, people who have a disdain for large faceless corporate companies and a love for fuelling the fire that is small businesses and independent artists.
By shopping with Dark As Day you are directly supporting a independent artist and a small business at the same time!

For me, Dark As Day is a creative outlet that has allowed me to connect with 1000's of people and fellow artists from all over the globe and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon!
