Launched in 2006, Artefacture was a graphic t-shirt brand that enjoyed early success with the release of “I Will Pay For Good Design” and “Design Will Save the World” t-shirts. The brand quickly gained attention in the blogosphere, from design centric retailers and museum shops worldwide. Inspired by iconic graphic works of the past, other design themed tees followed, establishing Artefacture as the choice brand for designers and creatives alike. After a several year hiatus, Andreu has relaunched Artefacture and is focusing his efforts on graphic art and releasing this work via the Artefacture brand.
Andreu Osika was born in Chicago, Illinois. He studied art and design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a BFA in Graphic Design. Four years later he went on to the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where he received an MFA in Industrial Design. When not creating graphics, he switches gears and turns to writing short stories and poetry.
Andreu leads as a digital product design and branding studio - AX3 in San Francisco.
