Recently launching at the MCM London Expo, Mamoo Designs
(meaning Manga Moods)
are a new UK company which specialise in producing t-shirts featuring
manga-inspired designs by well-known artists.
The Mamoo range currently consists of work by four artists from
the UK-based Sweatdrop Studios and sixkillerbunnies.
The introductory range is an eclectic mix of styles designed to please
everyone. Acutely aware that they needed to cater for fans of all
manner of genres, Mamoo have created a range which does just
that. Cute girls, cyberpunk, unusual gothic designs and action
manga panels are all included. With this much variety available so
early in their life, Mamoo look set to make a major impact on the
UK scene when they unveil products, including bags and belts, featuring
new designers next year.

A Chinese born artist currently studying in the UK, Joanna Zhou is
part of the UK manga artist group Sweatdrop Studios
and her mainly cute style brings a traditional manga look to the
Mamoo range. Joanna has worked with Channel 4, NEO
Magazine and TokyoToys (among others) and is a great designer to
kick off the Mamoo range.
