The Mallard logo was inspired by local tattoo artist, Ego Ink. Curiosity for the brand grew after Duane Mallard (CEO/Founder) was seen wearing his customized clothing at many of the 717's premiere events. His entrepreneurial spirit, along with co-founder Marice Brown, inspired them to create a clothing line centered on the Mallard logo for the world to adore. Duane Mallard was born and raised in Harrisburg, PA. Mr. Mallard currently resides in Harrisburg.
In addition to Mr. Mallard, co-founder Marice Brown, president Ebony Scott, and vice president Satin Smith all reside in Harrisburg, PA.
