Hi! My name is Kymberly O'Carroll-Fitzpatrick, I'm the Aussie behind Fitzygogo!. I spend my days hanging out in my home studio in Essex listening to seventies music and coming up with new ideas and designs.
I started out as a painter, working on large canvases and exhibiting in galleries in London and Essex. With the support of family and friends I decided to go in a different creative direction, I took a leap from painting which I really enjoyed to designing t-shirts which turned out to be something that I absolutely love. I launched Fitzygogo! in September 2014 and haven't looked back since.
The inspiration for Fitzygogo! designs come from my obsession with sixties and seventies fashion, romance comics, pop culture, record album mart, music, branding, packaging, advertising and typography.
In the current Fitzygogo! collection you will find men's and women's t-shirts, vest tops, sweatshirts, greetings cards, risograph prints, lino print, shrink plastic badges, metal badges and hand painted vintage handbags. I will be launching new designs throughout the year so stay tuned!
I am in charge of the designing, drawing, painting, creating, lino printing and the everyday running of Fitzygogo!. My hand screenprinting is done by Lynne Blackburn at Hippo Screenprinters out in the Essex countryside. All risograph A6 prints and greetings cards are printed by the very groovy Hato Press or super funky Ditto Press, both based in London. Awesome Merchandise in Leeds take care of making the metal badges using my original hand drawn illustrations.
