we like to be unexpected.

The Unexpected Type began as a single patch shop in 2017 and since then has grown into a visual design + creative studio in Southern California that has produced over 30 limited edition products. Owned by duo, Sami + Nathan, TUT is directly inspired by the outdoors, travel + telling stories! In addition to our design work, we love to blog about our passions and off-road, camping lifestyle. We make items that are fit for adventure and usually do things a little unexpectedly around here.


"Thank YOU again so much for being so open and willing to put something together for me. I love how it all came together and couldn’t be more happy with the final result!!"
- Tara Dalley, Logo Design Client

“What can I say? I love these two and their patches! Make sure you are also following them on IG. Great concept for a patch. Clean stitching and nice puff elements :) I can't wait to see what's next.”
- James Parada, Our Favorite TUT Supporter
