Brothas N Sistas spawned from the mind of Arielle Wilkins, a New York-based graphic designer who was raised in the heart of Texas. Inspired by her father’s performing arts background, she quickly immersed herself in music and naturally visual arts.
While lyrics from hip hop, jazz, and rock rang through her mind, Arielle decided to make a real difference with her talents. Initially, her designs were inspired by the 1970’s funk trend, but as she honed her skills Brothas N Sistas developed into a company with the mission to introduce urban culture in a positive light. Music being ingrained in her soul, Arielle was compelled to first pay respect to the core of her existence, rappers. Don’t get me wrong, her love for music stems farther than just hip-hop, and the intent for this brand is to grow farther than just illustrations. Brothas N Sistas looks to penetrate the toy and cartoon industry.
Brothas N Sistas believes the lack of representation for the urban culture is a shame. For that reason, it’s dedicated to delivering the quality design of culturally relevant products to the unfortunate souls who have yet to discover the awesomeness.
