“Social Living to live a happy and full life.”
Artist and designer Darrin Milliner wants you to be open, to think for yourself, to be who you want to be. To spread his message he created Social Living in 2017, a lifestyle brand with clothing, accessories, art, and home goods all featuring Darrin’s creative designs. Growing up in Beaver County, Darrin and his friends began creating photos and videos of themselves skateboarding and that led him to a local, arts-focussed high school and eventually, a creative life. When the city beckoned he moved to Pittsburgh and started working in art, graphic design and media production.
Many of Social Living’s designs are based on Darrin’s work in collage. For years, he has been collecting old books, piles of magazines, posters, and other vintage printed materials. In his studio, he carefully selects, cuts and assembles them into new illustrations and visuals. Working both by hand and digitally allows him to create unique designs which end up on Social Living products including wall art, t-shirts, hats, even lighters and other accessories. With a retro style and a counter-cultural message Social Living invites you to feel empowered to be yourself.
