Winning at Local Design Contest

This past weekend, our Art Director, Tracie Schmidt and her husband, Don, won the 2015 Chalk Walk’s 2016 T-Shirt Design. It took about 7 hours to complete their award-winning design. In 2016, their design will be featured on t-shirts, bags and other gear for the event. Marla Laurer and her son, Malcolm, along with a team from our sister company, Blue Pony, also participated in the event.
