A terrific illustrator who understood the brief immediately. A pleasure to work with.
The design for our Revolve shirts completely reflects our studio style. This was a fun contest!
This is the second time I have worker with Clean-Designs and once again, I am very happy with the end product.

What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Animal & Pet
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Satches is an animal accessory company with the purpose to 1. eliminate animal homelessness by committing a portion of net sales to grass root animal rescue organizations throughout the country 2. reduce stress on the environment by using recycled and post-consumer materials to create singular products with bold designs.
Primary- Animal Lovers
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.” ― Anatole France
Engage with pet lovers, people who stop to pet every animal they see as they walk down the street and care about all animals—dogs, cats, giraffes, hippos; people whose hearts ache when they see animals in distress, and whose lives are incomplete without four-legged companions.
Secondary- Socially Conscious People
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” ― John Wesley
Engage with people who want to make a difference in the world, those who seek out products and companies that aim to make a positive contribution to society; people with a strong sense of optimism, who want to challenge the status quo, innovate, and improve the world around them.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We'd like to capture the essence of our company's attitude and personality with some graphics that can be used primarily on apparel.
The theme of the t-shirt design is "Oh no, Satchmo!". We like a retro feel but are open to your interpretation. Be fun, be unique, and be mischievous.
Satches company was named and modeled after a mischievous Jack Russell terrier named Satchmo. Satchmo was often getting into trouble to which we would respond "Oh no, Satchmo!" Like chasing after the mail truck with lightening fast speed, tackling small children and excessively licking their faces, spending hours jumping vertically up and down….
Although we take our company purpose very seriously, we go about achieving it with a sense of humor, corky attitude and some sass.
We are open to many options for the graphic including text only, cartoons, meme and more. See attached for some inspiration for "Oh no, Satchmo!"
