OUR STORY

Growing up, I was heavily into horror movies, Goosebumps books, metal music, skateboarding, and all things Halloween. I slowly became more and more intrigued and obsessed with the mind bending artwork that accompanied all of it. After years of doodling little monsters and copying Pushead skulls in my notebook, I decided to post a few sketches on Myspace (lol) - And soon after, I was contacted by a local band who were in need of T-shirt designs. So I buckled down, stayed up until sunrise, and taught myself some basic Photoshop skills and created my first ever clothing designs. From there, what was once a hobby, snowballed into a full-time job designing bold and colorful art for t-shirts, cd packaging, posters, and other merchandise for local and internationally recognized metal bands. In May of 2012, after years of designing freelance, I decided to change paths and with the help of my wife, and Co-Founder Ricki Crawford, take my art and release it as t-shirts and prints under the name CAVITYCOLORS. (A name coined from the idea of vibrant colors drawing you in to view something that may be horrific or unsettling in subject matter) 
Since 2012, Cavitycolors has become an internationally recognized brand, with collaborations with some of the leading artists and designers working today, while also acquiring licensing rights to produce official merchandise for a wide range of horror, sci-fi, and cult classic films. We're always on a quest down a path lined with glowing pumpkins, seeking that exact same nostalgic feeling we all felt as a kid discovering our favorite scary movies for the very first time. This inspiration spills over into the items we create for our brand. We're here to bring you the same feeling you get while watching a favorite monster movie after midnight, or throwing on your favorite Halloween costume to go trick 'r treating! We're incredibly humbled to have customers and supporters from around the world who share the same passion for all things spooky and weird, and we can't thank you enough for the ongoing support. Without you, our brand wouldn't exist.

He collects horror toys, scours thrift store shelves for VHS gems, and loves cuddling with his dogs, Ruby & Gizmo!

Ricki Crawford

Co-Founder, Chief Operations Officer, Weirdo

Ricki has always had a passion for the weird, the unusual and the mystical. You can usually find her helping around the warehouse, answering emails, managing logistics, and exorcising demons. When she's not working, she is hanging with two horror hounds and traveling.

Patti Crawford, the mom of Aaron Crawford, handles many of the behind the scenes management aspects of Cavitycolors. She's a lifelong creator and entrepreneur, with an Associates Degree in Business Management and Marketing. She is a lover of all things Halloween, art, and her pupper, Jojo.  

Devon Whitehead

Practically raised in a video store, Devon grew up on horror films on VHS and was obsessed with their cover art.  After graduating from Otis College of Art and Design, he began a career designing cover art for countless horror films, posters, and much more.

He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. 

Hillary White

Artist, illustrator, Street Cat Enthusiast

She grew up in mid coast Maine in a wave of ‘80s pop culture; video games, vhs movies, horror, music, action figures, and cartoons. From an early age she had a proclivity toward drawing and painting, make-believe, and anything a little creepy-the book Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and the USA Network’s “Saturday Nightmares” were especially influential (horrifying). She’s been creating shirt designs since 2009 and has been getting spooky with team CavityColors since 2015.

Ruby

Chief Morale Officer, Director of Borks, Extraterrestrial

Ruby makes sure things get done around the office, and with fervor. She's an all-around great gal, and smells like maple syrup! When she isn't at work, you can find her bathing in the sun, watching X-files, or tossing around her toys. Betchya you want her toys, and you can't have 'em! Also, she sends quarterly reports of human activity to her headquarters in the galaxy.

Gizmo

Branch Manager, Head of Security, Mogwai

Gizmo was born for Halloween - literally. His birthday is 10-31-19! He is always on guard to defend the Cavity Crew against ghosts, goblins and killer klowns. His favorite things to do is eat, toot and give out kisses. Don't let his gruff nature fool ya! He's hard and tuff on the outside but a big cuddle bug when you get to know him.
