As design thinkers, design is a part of our daily life that lives on in how we think, act and reflect on our world. It's a lifestyle that lives on beyond the hours spent within the walls of our office. 

One of our many talented designers, who taps into and exercises her design mind every hour, submitted her own design to the Cotton Bureau, a website that curates and prints graphic design tees. 

On the site, anyone can submit a design for a shirt -- if its posted on the site, you have a two week window to sell them. If a design receives a certain number of pre-orders, then the shirts are printed and shipped. If you don't sell enough of them then they're never printed. So, it can be tough to get a design actually produced. 

Beth Sicheneder, has always been a lover of the outdoors and, as she puts it, "being a designer makes me a bit of a nerd, so she had to combine the two." Her design titled "Campersand" fuses her inspiration of the outdoors and design together and can be viewed here: https://cottonbureau.com/products/campersand

“Roaring campfires, towering pine trees, twinkling stars in the north and crisp night air. A shirt for outdoor aficionados and design nerds alike.”
