Our Philosophy

About | Kelley Jordan essential tees for women

It’s all about Living in a white-t-shirt-kind-of-way. Simply, that means working in a way that works for me. That's how the work philosophy WOW (work our way) came about.  I knew I had to work in a way that fit me and my daughter. At the time, that meant working after 8 when my daughter was asleep. A8 is abbreviated for After 8 because that's how it all started. 



Our Founder


I’m Kelley Jordan, Founder of A8kelleyjordan. I’m a woman  first and foremost. I’m also a mom, a creative, a risk-taker, an adventurer and an advocate for women. When my life took an unexpected turn with a young daughter years ago, I found an opportunity to take an empowered turn in life. And I created a philosophy for us.



Our Studio

A8 is based out of an exposed brick studio in downtown Bloomington, IL. We occupy the 6th floor of the historic Castle Theater building. Our space has been renovated to fit our minimalistic aesthetic with exposed brick, flooding sunlight and smooth music filling our space.
