Meet Our Team!
Ever wondered who made things happen around here? Well, you've came to the right place!
My name is Brandon Martinkus & I started Brand One in the sketchy basement of my house, in college. (Sketchy is an understatement) What started as learning how to screen print and repurposing thrift store threads, slowly has turned into a team of us hustling to build an established clothing brand in Kansas City!
Meet Ethan! "E" came onto the team shortly after I graduated from college and has played a key role in designing for the brand ever since. Early on, Ethan was kind of our, "right hand guy" as he modeled for us, came up with business concepts, and designed. Although he no longer lives in Kansas City, Ethan is still a key asset & the designer behind a lot of our current pieces!
Next, we have the one and only Kristina Murphy! Kristina serves as a key strategist for our brand and I honestly can't say that there are too many ideas or moves that occur without her input. Her positivity is second to none & certainly what any team needs, but don't get it twisted... She is also our "go to" when it comes to laying the law!
In the cleanup spot, we have our boy Jonathan - A.K.A. "Jaywil". Jonathan has helped design and animate for the brand for the last couple years (as well as even modeled)! From becoming homies in high school, to now collabing and bringing together new ideas/concepts for the brand, Jaywil is a KEY asset to our team and brings genuine vibes every time he's around!
