Rude started about 15 years ago as T-shirt label that quickly grew into an exciting street brand (selling to shops worldwide with agents in Japan and the US) by utilizing a passion for screen-printing and the simple starting point of hand drawn illustration on T-shirts. Rude has since evolved into a image-making collective. Over the years Rude have produced countless clothing collections with numerous catalogues, screen-prints, commissioned projects and pop-up shops. Rupert specializes in hand drawn illustration and original artwork, working closely with agency Blunt on illustration commissions. While in the studio, Abi is responsible for animation and moving image. Rupert and Abi live in London with their two sons Billy and Herbie.
