  Solution     We designed each shirt to represent the two largest exports of the 13 countries that sit on the equator. The colours meet proportionally where the equator divides the country. The logo takes inspiration from the phonetic symbol at the beginning of Ecuador. It's form is also to reference the brands interest in geography. The stroke is theoretically looping around the equator.   The limited run of 100 shirts sold out at our launch. The money raised was used for a group exhibition at the Rochelle School, London.
