Keep Going - an Outdoor Adventure

We hit the road in our Sprinter van to get away and get inspired. Follow our YouTube channel and get ready for some cool outdoor designs dropping soon!

Who’s haunting your house harder right now? You? Or actual ghosts? They’re probably annoyed that you’re doing their job better than them. You know, moaning, wandering the halls, moving things around in the kitchen with no particular purpose... there’s no actual reason for this question, just wanted to make a funny observation........

Funny how things happening around you can change your perspective on stuff like... say... an alien abduction.  2019- "Probably rather not..." 2020- "Probably, why not!?"

SO… why the heck are we in Park Rapids, MN? Sheesh, I thought you’d never ask. Tina and I rented out our house in Indianapolis to live and work in Venice last year, but what used to be an inspiring place for us to plan and create new collections, became a place that we just wanted to escape. I’m sure you feel the same way, wherever you’re located. I started dreaming about creating an outdoor adventure collection.

A kid's bedroom door. Comical signs saying "No parents allowed" and "dinosaur crossing" etc decorate the basic faux-wood facade.

Door swings out as if opened by a ghost and camera enters room, pans to the right, and centers on a kid performing generic play action at a comically small table.

This project took a lot of creative muscle to pull off quickly and we just wanted to give you guys a little inside peek at our thought process. When the pandemic hit we said we’d double down and work harder than ever and get more creative to try to encourage others around us and to keep our little brand afloat. Vardagen is about everyday human experiences on everyday things like t-shirts. We’ve been exploring all the different emotions and feelings around a worldwide situation that has effected everyone’s everyday lives. 
In spite of the fortuitous timing of the release of a video game that lets you live out a social life among anthropomorphic animals, I've seen a lot of people expressing online how much they are struggling with being cooped up in their house. So, in an effort to make up for my adult angst, here are my top 5 general tips to be better at living as a Social Distancer.

I know Social Distancing is not for everyone… well… at least it wasn’t. Now EVERYONE wants to be a SD (Social Distancer) and, honestly it’s weird for me. Isolation is an art form and not everyone has the skills.
