After working as graphic designers in the streetware and skate industry in California, Stephen K. Reeder and Anna Breitenberger started Motmot Design in Los Angeles in 2001. They eventually ended up in Vienna, where they opened up the Motmot Shop in the 7th district. Here you can find the Wiener Dog shirt and lots of other rad designs. All t-shirts are screen-printed at the shop, while the customer watches.
Besides their love for t-shirts, the Motmots also work as graphic designers with clients in the fields of media literacy and non-profit organizations. To have a better overview go to www.motmotshop.com
