Lots of fresh new things are happening here at DroneBoy right now and with the storeroom being closed I guess you must be wondering what we’re all up to…
For those who don’t know me already, I’m Abi, Dave’s girlfriend and now manager of DroneBoy
So ye, what are we so busy with? We’ve got our new spring summer collection being designed by myself and dave as we speak. Im super excited about this next range as we’re introducing some sleek little numbers for us birds. These garments will be completely unique for DroneBoy (or DroneGurl) only. Here’s a sneaky peak at what I’ve been busy with today..
We’re of course going to need a whole new space for DroneBoy. Me and Dave have been shop hunting all around Cardiff. There’s a few gaffs were pretty keen on, one in particular is a real eye catcher! Wherever our new shop may be, its going to look very different from Low Coal. Were going for a new shop theme, everything’s going to be much cleaner and fresher. I can’t spill too many beans though so keep tuned for the launch party!
It wouldn’t seem like a thorough clean without giving the website a makeover either. With the help of Daniel Ford, owner of Neon Panda Design Studios (http://www.neon-design.co.uk/) we’ve managed to draw out a hot new site. Keep your eyes peeled for the logo that give you curious cats 10% off.
CCFC PREMIERSHIP TEE
Dropped a design two days ago to celebrate my hometown club Cardiff City getting into the premiership. Kind of a big deal, been going to watch them with my Dad since I was four and they always been the underdogs.
Loads of messages have come through asking for it to be printed. Have never done pre-order before, so gonna see how it goes.
The magic number is 50, if we reach 50 pieces it gets printed, we will limited the tee to 75 pieces.
IF WE DON’T REACH THE 50 YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET REFUNDED ON TUESDAY 23rd APRIL.
WHEN WE REACH 50 THE TEE GETS SENT TO THE PRINTERS.
designed and printed in Cardiff.

Been DJing out alot over the holiday season, it’s kinda nice being able to go do a job with no pressure. Everyone locally knows I’m not a DJ, but know that I love music, basically I act as a selector. I know i’m privileged to be able to do this, i’m picked to do it because of my clothing brand and the artwork I produce, but at least I know this and can have fun with it. The last few sets i’ve played a kind of best of the year set, consisting of Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Angel Haze and my new favourite from P.O.S – Fuck Your Stuff.
To celebrate the holiday season, we are bringing down one of our sponsored artists for a special intimate christmas party at our flagship store in Cardiff. On Thursday 20th December we will have Beatbox champion Hobbit and free ‘DroneBoy’ tattoos from the Lucky Strike tattooists including LaLa and Dom Continents. There will be 10% off all products in store and maybe even some Haribo.
Tattoos:- first come first served (tattoos from flash sheet)
Hobbit:- performing around 4:30pm/5:00pm
