Oaklandish roots logo

Oaklandish "roots" logo

A few years ago Oaklandish began with a simple idea: design a logo that would celebrate the history and culture of Oakland.  But the 'œroots' logo became so popular it set off a domino effect and now there is a clothing company, an awesome website, a farmers’ market rig, and lot’s of great community projects.  Now Oaklandish is holding their 1st Annual T-Shirt Design Contest.  Here’s the scoop (read the site for the fine print):

$250 Grand Prize (plus a stack of shirts with your design)
2nd Prize: 1 Oaklandish hoody & 1 Oaklandish T-shirt of your choice
3rd Prize, Two Oaklandish T-shirts of your choice

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
