About Us

EFD WAS BORN OUT OF HARD TIMES, JOBLESS, AND MOST OF ALL DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC.

 

I HAD BEEN TERMINATED FROM MY JOB AT THE END OF JANUARY 2020, AND WAS LEFT TOTALLY LOST IN MY LIFE. A JOB I THOUGHT I WOULD BE AT FOR 30+ YEARS ALL GONE IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. I DIDN’T SEE ANY HOPE IN SIGHT, THE PEDIMENT I WAS IN WAS TO BIG; I THOUGHT THIS WAS MY END. IT WAS IN THE VERY EARLY HOURS IN THE MORNING ONE DAY IN FEBRUARY, I HAD STAYED UP LATE TO DRAW ON MY TABLET, AND BOOM! IT HIT ME EFD DESIGNS; EVER FEARLESS DESIGNS. I COULD TAKE MY LOVE OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGN, AND GRAPHIC DESIGN INTO A BUSINESS, NO LONGER JUST A FORGOTTEN THROWN IN THE BACK OF THE CLOSET DREAM.

 

AS I WORKED 18 HOUR DAYS ON PRODUCTS, AND PROJECT THAT I’VE HAD ON THE BACK BURNER OF LIFE FOR NEARLY 5 YEARS. ONE DAY I WAS WORKING ON GRAPHICS FOR A RUCK SACK, AS I DREW, I THOUGHT TO MY SELF “HEY I SHOULD PUT THAT ON A SHIRT”. JUST AT THAT MOMENT I CAME UP WITH TIER- THE CLOTHING BRAND OF EFD DESIGNS. PATRIOTIC, MILITARY BASED, AND SOMETIMES JUST FUN. TIER IS TIP OF THE SPEAR, TOP OF THE TOP.

I WANTED TO TURN MY DEGREE IN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN INTO A REALITY THAT I COULD TUN MY OWN PRODUCT CONCEPTS INTO REALITY; AND NOW I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY. I HAD LITTLE MONEY, BUT I HAD A WIFE THAT BELIEVED IN ME & BACKED ME 110%, AND AN ACCOUNTANT THAT SAID I WAS OUT OF MY MIND FOR IT.

 

GEAR & APPAREL - FROM CONCEPT TO FINAL PRODUCT, WE DESIGN, TEST, AND PROUDLY OVERBUILD GEAR AND APPAREL.WE TAKE THIS TO HEART, SO THAT IT THRIVES IN KHANDHAR AND PHILADELPHIA.
