We try to work with our friends when we can. Here are those friends (and their small businesses) that make our small business possible.

  • We literally wouldn't be here if it wasn't for these two, because they built the site you're looking at right now. And boy did they do a good job.

  • The man who's responsible for making our awful food look edible. He basically shot every image you see on this site. He's one of the hardest working dudes in Philly and he's always down to get as weird as fuck with us.

  • She'll fix your room but she'll break your heart. Our feisty friend from Frankford helped design the interior and hand paint the wallpaper at Middle Child. She's also working her wonders on our next project, too. ;) I love her.

  • He's hopelessly addicted to hashbrowns. And just being around him makes your day better. So lucky for us, he's amazing at designing and photographing merch.

  • The prince of prints. The sultan of swatch. The people who've printed every tote and shirt we've made since the day we opened.

  • A fan who became a friend. A kind and caring soul. Frequently helping us out with all things graphic design and always slaying the game.

  • A steady friend with a steady hand is quite a nice thing to have. Christian and his team have been hand painting signs for us since we first opened.

  • His last name may be Paris but this guy is so fucking Philly. He's the one who does most of the fun illustrations you see on our instagram and on our coasters. And he's so god damn sweet.

  • We've made so many fun things with this sick bundle of joy. Cups, plates, shirts, you name it! And she loves smiley faces almost as much as we do.

  • A local clothing shop with the latest drip and hottest drops. If someone who works here isn't sitting at our counter, we're probably closed.

  • The kind of guy that doesn't blink an eye when you text him at 4am saying "Yo I've got a really dumb idea can you help me out?" Responsible for so many photos, videos, and stupid animations floating around the Middle Child universe.

  • They make clothing while also making the world a better place. Seriously... what could be cooler?
