As part of our ongoing effort to “build better cities” we have just launched a new online shop featuring fun, funky and fresh hyper-local designs.
Each shirt is printed on demand on a fresh tee from Next Level Apparel (Website) by our local partners at Go Big Marketing (Website). Each of our models was hand-picked for the work they do in our community and the impact they’ve had on making Orlando a better place to live, work, and play.
Our models were:
- Nicole Higgins (pictured above in our College Park tee) is the Rally Director for Downtown Credo (Website) which means she’s the one getting her hands dirty and rubbing elbows with the communities the pay-what-you-can coffee shop chain supports. The first Credo was started in the heart of College Park, and we think it lived up to the location.
- Trina Gregory-Propst (our Milk District model) is the chef/owner of Se7en Bites bake shop (Facebook), a growing small business that’s making a real impact on Orlando’s baked goods and comfort food scene. We were honored to have her represent her growing district in our new Milk District tee.
- Sarah Peerani (sporting the pink Orlando tee) has her hands in countless community-based projects, most notably the Orlando Conductor Crawl (Facebook) and Orlando Bike Tours (Website). We’re excited to see what she can come up with next.
- Thaddeus McCollum (the handsome man in the Thrills on Mills shirt) is most readily known for the time he spent as the Will’s Pub doorman in the Mills 50 District. Apparently one event a night wasn’t enough as he’s moved on to be the Calendar Editor for the Orlando Weekly.
- Scottie Campbell was once the Executive Director of Ivanhoe Village Main Street, but even though he’s moved on to the Orlando Science Center he’s still trying to stay rooted in his favorite Orlando neighborhood. Every Tuesday night he hosts trivia at the Hammered Lamb (Website) where a percentage of the bar goes towards supporting Florida Little Dog Rescue. That’s right, you can save puppies by drinking, hopefully in our Ivanhoe No You Da Hoe tee.
