Beginning in 2014, Artists For Humanity launched a partnership with Barnes and Noble’s college campus locations. The first retail space to receive designs by AFH participants was the Boston University bookstore. Soon to follow? Yale, Lesley, Harvard, Berklee and Simmons. The collaboration has been invaluable to AFH, not only because of its commercial success but also because our Graphic Design studio participants, who create the illustrations for the t-shirts, are able to see their designs sold at some of the area’s top colleges and universities. Plus, the partnership provides an opportunity for cross-studio collaboration, as the Screenprinting studio translates designs from Graphics onto the tees, totes and mugs. Scroll down to see some of our favorite designs!

Barnes & Noble hired AFH’s Graphic Design studio to design a product line that spoke specifically to Berklee College of Music’s students, constituents, and the public in general. The final outcome was a bright and youthful line of t-shirts, tote bags, and other accessories inspired by their curriculum and popular instruments they practice.

Artists For Humanity's partnership with Barnes and Noble is in full bloom this Spring, with new designs for Boston University and Yale just released. We were honored to receive news that Graphic Design Mentor Kelsey Arbona's t-shirt design has been the number one best seller at BU Barnes and Noble for several weeks and counting.​

MEET TOM!

Tom is the Director of the Screenprinting Studio, which has produced work for everyone from Cheers to Yale. When asked what Screenprinting means at AFH, Tom explains, "It's the process of taking our participant's ideas and turning them into physical products." Each year, the Screenprinting studio creates an average of 78,000 products including shirts, totes, mugs and more. Thanks for your hard work, Tom! ​
