Brett Childs & Crystal Hanks Childs
Brett Childs and Crystal Hanks Childs are the owners of Vital Industries, a modern craft studio specializing in screen printing. Their design inspiration comes from the things they love—bicycles, craft beer and cocktails, crisp modern graphics, road trips, intriguing typography, their Minnesota roots, and Scandinavian heritage.
The creative couple met in high school and have been building their artistic collaborations since 2006. Always eager to learn new techniques, processes like embroidery, photography, candle making, quilting, dyeing, and painting appear in their wares.
Brett and Crystal live in Denver, Colorado with their young daughter. When they aren't taking care of business, they enjoy skiing, travel, and collecting vintage cast iron cookware.
