Brooklyn based design duo Victory Press was invited to open a Pop Up Shop at Space 1520 in Los Angeles this Summer. Jonathan Cammisa and Jess Humphrey packed up their little apartment in Brooklyn, their camping gear, their dog Jasper and hit the road along with filmmaker Nathan Caswell on a cross country trip from New York City to Los Angeles. On their adventure across the United States, they stopped in major manufacturing centers such as Detroit and Bozeman to work with the factories that produce their apparel, then make their way out west, camping and exploring the Amazing Outdoors from South Dakota to California. Victory Press shares here what the USA offers, not only its awe inspiring beauty, but the dynamic opportunity to manufacture goods.
