New Jersey-born Marc Ecko began his artistic journey as a graffiti artist in the New York area while in college. Feeling somewhat limited in the format, he soon began applying his art to hand-made t-shirts. A full-fledged member of the emerging hip-hop scene, Ecko engendered interest with the generation's new cultural icons including Spike Lee and Chuck D, who wore his t-shirts with pride. These events precipitated Ecko founding *ecko unltd. in 1993, at the age of 20. His unique talents, couple with an innate marketing acumen, would quickly guarantee success.
Ecko hosted a seminar discussing "Creating Brands Without Boundaries."
