SpinkyCat™ & Itch-it!™
Mission: Spread fun, love & happiness to the world by helping people express their “it”.
What is “it”?
We’re a small home-based mom & pop company that wants to make cool stuff to help people express their “it” in life. “It” can be an activity (i.e. - soccer, fishing, golfing, etc.). “It” can be a driving force (i.e. - peace, love, faith). “It” can also be professional (i.e. - art, graphic design, nursing). “It” is something that you do or strive to do (e.g., a little voice inside of you that says “stop thinking about it and Itch-it!”).
We came up with a unique character called SpinkyCat as a fun way to express & depict various “its” to our kids (skiing, hiking, art, biking, etc.). Since then Itch-it & SpinkyCat have continued to grow in popularity. Now it’s time to take “it” to the next level and graphically represent SpinkyCat enthusiastically enjoying some of the finer “its” in life so that peeps around the world can proudly wear SpinkyCat apparel letting everyone know it’s cool to express “it”.
The winner of this contest will likely be asked to help in the design and launch of other SpinkyCat graphics for apparel & accessories. We’re looking for the right fit to produce a long-term relationship.
We are also planning on launching a custom Café Press website this year to sell our apparel so if you have Café Press design experience, please let us know.
The brand audience stretches across all demographics & is focused on optimistic, active peeps of all shapes, sizes and ages.
With that said all of our sales to date have been to kids, teens, college students, active families and outdoorsy adults.
