Linya-Linya literally started from scratch—that’s us scratching our heads.
Long-time college friends Ali Sangalang and Panch Alvarez were workmates back in 2012. Ali, a writer; Panch, a visual artist. Trying to fight off daily feels and frustration from work, both friends sat down at a local restaurant to sort things out.
To address their creative slump, the solution was quite simple: go back to basics. Ali, a class clown; Panch, a cartoonist who drew mischievous caricatures of his teachers. On a lined blank notebook, Ali wrote his one-liners, and Panch matched it with his doodles. They shared it online and the followers started piling up. It didn’t take long until their Linyas were turned into shirts and other products.
