Graphic Design ’94

ROB NORMAN owns Planet Brooklyn Academy, a store that sells athletic apparel featuring his collegiate-style graphic designs, printed in his business partner’s factory in New Jersey. “Growing up in Brooklyn, it’s like a school of survival on the streets,” he explains. “That’s where the name came from.” His best seller so far is a sweatpant with the logo across the front instead of, more typically, the backside or the leg. Another reason to visit: the store also sells fresh lemonade.
