Ryan formed Wide Eye in 2002 out of frustration in the lack of creative clothing available that represented the free party scene & other subcultures. He based the brand on printing unique illustrations from talented artists onto quality garments. The designs caught people’s eye from far and wide at Teknivals & festivals in the UK and overseas.
In 2011 the founder of Public Nuisance gave Wide Eye Clothing their artwork and permitted them to print Public Nuisance garments to enable the iconic brand to live on for many more years to come. Wide Eye took on this challenge and re-branded themselves as a collaboration, using their artwork & the Public Nuisance logos to create a formidable combination of artwork and rave history while providing options to purchase stock online and through independent retailers.
Unfortunately, due to life events including the tragic loss of Emma, who was a big part of Wide Eye, their mission temporarily stalled.
In October 2019 Ryan reflected on the Public Nuisance collaboration with pride and sense of achievement, for bringing this legendary brand back to life.
After achieving this goal Ryan decided to continue to make Public Nuisance garments available by being an official stockist. However, Ryan wanted to concentrate his creative flair on his own brand, working with Wide Eye’s established network of artists alongside a verity of new talent and www.wideeye.co.uk was relaunched!
