WHO WE ARE: A Marianas inspired apparel brand established in Northern Mariana Islands, TINIAN.
OUR MISSION: To carry on the native languages and cultures of the Mariana Islands through lifestyle apparels.
OUR CORE: We hope to inspire our youth and next generation to continually learn about their cultural heritage, customs, and roots.
OVERVIEW: We just want to express the unique side of the Mariana Islands through its people as well as to everyone and anyone around the world.
OUR LOGO: Drawing inspiration from the megalithic lattes of the Mariana Islands, our logo integrates the native letter "Ú" with the upper part of the latte known as the tåsa (a hemispherical stone).
We chose the tåsa as a logo because we see it as a symbol of success; a capstone set at its highest point that reminds us of the perseverance and strength of the Marianas peoples, making it one of the greatest achievements our ancestors have accomplished.
With that, we hope our logo brings pride to the people of the Marianas and motivates them to continually strive for the best, set their capstone, and rise like the lattes no matter what obstacle lies ahead.
The concept of the code “67Ø” is an integration of the area codes “670” and “671” representing the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam together as one area, one location.
Because these fifteen chain of islands were historically known as the Mariana Islands, we decided to keep it as that and took the ending area codes, “0” and “1" combined them together and came up with this symbol “Ø” (zero with a slash).
Next was figuring out how to pronounce it, so we converted the numbers “0” and “1” into words, added them (zero + one), and came up with “z-one” which then led us to finalizing and pronouncing the symbol “Ø” as “zone."
This code was created to represent the entire Mariana Islands and its people as well as to take pride not only in the 670 or 671 area code, but in the "SIX SEVEN ZONE 67Ø" area code!
