Only New England is an Adventure Apparel Company. The idea of the business is to build a community of New England/ outdoor lovers, by bringing the beauty of New England alive through photography and art and sharing it through the medium of apparel.
The Only New England team (or ONE for short) would go out and find treasured local locations around the New England area photograph them, document the experience, and then make a design to be used on a shirt/ piece of apparel. These locations aren't commonly found on your google searches they're places that you need to talk to locals to find or have some knowledge of the area.
The locations and the experiences were then shared via social media and posted on our site in a blog/ video format. The site also includes a locations map in which the Only New England team would mark the locations the visited with photos and links to the blog on the locations, encouraging others to go and experience the location themselves. The map also allowed for users to post there own locations, which would allow for a community to be built.
