Daily Inspiration: Meet Trevor Redding

Today we’d like to introduce you to Trevor Redding.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started GdeedsCompany in 2019 as an experiment really, I knew I always had a passion for streetwear and fashion but I was unsure if I wanted to dedicate my life to it. My first ever release was 12 logo embroidery shirts for 20 dollars. I made the shirts to see if people would actually buy them. Surprisingly they were all gone the same night. At the time, I didn’t have a website nor any social media platform for them like Instagram or Twitter, I basically just posted them on my Snapchat story and next thing you know within 5-10 minutes, I had over 30 notifications. From that point on, I knew I was on to something great.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has definitely not been easy, one of the struggles along the way was trying to find my purpose with the brand. And what I mean by that is trying to find the message I want to put out for my customers. I came up with GdeedsCompany which Gdeeds really means Good deeds. I’ll always been an observant person my entire life. I’ve noticed through family, friends and society that people aren’t perfect we sin, we do horrible things but at the end of the day, we try hard to do good deeds and become a better person than we were yesterday. Another struggle I had was being creative because I am a simple person when it comes to clothes. It was tough to find a balance within the area but I finally knew the route I wanted to take. Which was being simple but having the graphic or logo to be enough to stand out. I honestly feel like simplicity wins over something extreme every time. Lastly, I would say finding manufactures and networking was another struggle for me. In streetwear, I realize that it’s always room for improvement, whether it was from your artwork or the type of garment material you used. You have to constantly search for different manufactures that will provide you with the best type of quality and also different items your last manufacture might not be able to make that you want to present to your customers.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
What my brand is known for really is the simplicity, I have a bunch of dms saying have simple my artworks are but how effective they are at the same time. Which makes it easier for a person to put together an outfit.

How do you define success?
My definition of success has honestly never been about the money nor the fame. Being successful to me is being able to put people in the position to be successful. If you’re successful, you know what it took you to achieve that level of high standard. It’s your job to give those resources and gems to your family and friends to be on the same level you are to become successful at whatever craft they are doing.
