Located in Dundee’s thriving Creative Quarter, Abandon Ship Apparel is an independent clothing brand which uses art as a catalyst to create opportunities and positive change for others. Founder Richard Davies is a creative and entrepreneur who wears many hats. Abandon Ship Bar, Abandon Ship Art, and Gnarly Pizza are just a few of his creative business ventures. Rich’s love of drawing and illustration is reflected in the brand’s arty aesthetic, its playful ethos, and the vibrant artwork decorating the walls of the shop space in Downtown Dundee. As well as running multiple businesses, Rich has done numerous murals across the city, including our office, bringing Dundee’s urban spaces to life with vibrant drawings and unique illustrations. Using the brand as a platform to talk about important issues which typically get swept under the rug, Abandon Ship is passionate about nurturing an inclusive community built on transparency, openness and honesty.
