For Summer 2009, Teamworks presents a minimalist collection inspired by the lean and unsteady times being experienced the world over.

Both were created by Alexander Dawson, who also did the Teamworks “T” from Fall 2008. “The Rose” by Damon Johnson is a simple yet iconic symbol of both the beauty and the struggle of life, the blooming flower representing the goal while the stem represents the path and the blood shed along the way.
