Before establishing Allan Swerdloff Surface Designs, Allan was the company artist who was responsible for all the artwork, printed material, advertising art and photo lab output for Hydro-Aire, a large aerospace firm based in Burbank, CA. He also established design and manufacturing companies such as Mode Sport, a high-end batik silk sportswear line that made the cover of Women’s Wear Daily. He was a co-founder of Sunshine Studios, which began life as a designer and manufacturer of wall plaques and children’s décor.
Sunshine morphed into a firm that designed and manufactured one-of-a-kind hand printed batik clothing for the music and entertainment business. The firm went retail in the early 1970’s and heavily influenced fashion in that era. Sunshine’s designs were featured on the cover of California Apparel News three times. After four years of military service, he received an Associate of Arts degree in technical illustration from Los Angeles Trade Technical College and worked as an illustrator for American Technical Industrial Services in Los Angeles. He served as a United States Air Force medic in the Philippines and is a Los Angeles native.
