Good Fruit Designs features designs that portray positive themes and hold periodic competitions for new designs that portray given themes. Winning designs are featured and designers are awarded a percentage of the profit.
The purpose of Good Fruit Designs is:
– To get people thinking positively as they ponder about how to portray positive themes.
– To create apparel that depict positive theme and get wearers and the people around them thinking positively.
– To engage artists in a fun quarterly competition and give them the chance to get their designs on marketable t-shirts, &
– To raise money for Project Esperanza!
