The Strong Athletic & Fat Design by Strong Athletic in Collaboration with Chub Club
We created the Strong Athletic & Fat shirt after a request came in from Major Chaos, aka Wendy Marois, from Maine Roller Derby. While in the process of designing this shirt and also deciding if it would say "Strong Athletic Fat" or "Strong Athletic & Fat" we met Caitlin Schultheis and Eleni Burd of Chub Club, a Fat-Positive Clothing Brand and Collective. We already knew that we were going to make this design, but knew it would be more impactful to do so with another company that had set out to specifically highlight fat fat athletes. As Caitlin and Eleni said to me when we met, "fat is our favorite f-word."

This shirt was printed by a small-locally owned printing shop in the USA. This design is based on the original Strong Athletic shirt designed by Cristen Perks in 2013. The Strong Athletic logo was created by Angel Ortega of Garzig Design. The Chub Club logo was created by Caitlin Schultheis.
