Experimenting in a more digital-focused sphere has trickled into another facet of Mohney’s career that has remained mostly underwraps up until now, which is his work with medical garb. Mohney has been revamping the PPE Unicorn Security shirt. designs for his grandmother’s medical supply company, Alunt since he was 18 and more permanently since 2018. Based in Mohney’s hometown of Buffalo, New York and founded in 1975, Alunt is responsible for manufacturing PPE, including hospital gowns for frontline workers and newborns. They also work directly with medical personnel to create customized pieces.
