The Art Faculty x S.E.A. Aquarium Merchandise Collaboration

Brand: The Art Faculty x S.E.A. Aquarium



In an inspiring collaboration, The Art Faculty engaged DTC World to produce a stunning collection of merchandise, designed to not only enchant but also to transmit a powerful message of inclusion and diversity. These products, reflecting the unique talents of artists on the autism spectrum, would find their retail home at the S.E.A. Aquarium, bringing awareness and support to a meaningful cause. This project spotlights the exceptional talent of artists on the autism spectrum, particularly highlighting the vivid Sea Creatures series by Selena, a remarkable artist known for her detailed and whimsical interpretations of marine life. 

Our role in this unique collaboration extended from design adaptation, ensuring Selena’s intricate artworks were reproduced with high fidelity on each product, to sourcing quality materials that complement the beauty and ethos of The Art Faculty’s vision. Our production process was marked by meticulous attention to detail and quality, ensuring each item was a perfect canvas for Selena’s art.

This exclusive collaboration encompassed:

Drinkware with designs inspired by the diversity of marine life

Thermal Mug, Thermo Bottle. Enjoy your favourite beverages while admiring the meticulous art that adorns each drinkware.

Lifestyle and Utility Products with Sea Creatures designs


Foldable Shopping Bag, Travel Wallet, Foldable Umbrella. Art-inspiried designs functional lifestyle products. 

Embracing the beauty of marine life through the distinct lens of an artist on the autism spectrum, this merchandise collection was exclusively available at S.E.A. Aquarium. Each piece served as a vessel for Selena’s passion for marine biodiversity, particularly her fascination with Manta Rays, allowing aquarium visitors to carry a piece of this underwater wonder with them.

The Results:

Increased Awareness: This collaboration brought heightened visibility to the talents of artists on the spectrum, celebrating their abilities and contributions to the art world.

Enhanced Engagement: The unique backstory of the merchandise and its connection to marine conservation engaged customers on a deeper level, encouraging them to become advocates of both art and environmental conservation.
