We believe that creatives shouldn’t be painted with one brush stroke. The whole, starving artist image is overrated and it needs to be nipped in the bud (or wherever it has settled now). This is why we started this digital magazine that focuses on us creatives. However, instead of indulging the negative images and the overconfident artists that got us here we aim to sell creatives as professionals. At the end of the day, that’s what we aim to be. GETZ is a publication that aims to raise awareness about local creatives that do their own thing and excel.

Originally, the du-rag was the headgear worn by poor laborers and slaves in the 19th century. During the Black Power movement — a political movement that emphasized racial pride and economic empowerment in the late 1960s — the du-rag was revived among African Americans, particularly rappers, athletes and young men. Eventually, the du-rag evolved into a hairstyle preserver.
