General Outline /
Creative Objectives outlines the steps necessary to achieve Online (vertical) sales of overage production on low M.O.Q. In order to build a brand with honesty and integrity. We believe it will take more than just going from a solid concept, decent product, brand name and the possibility of a sale. We recommend using the following modern-traditionalist method of building a brand that is not only broad in distribution but deep in following:
*Allocated product made to order specifically for major wholesale accounts.
*Special low M.O.Q. orders cut for boutique and ecommerce sales.
*Collaboration, Private label generated through import & domestic sample lines.
*Specific SMU projects e.g. “Your Brand for Kohls, Hot topic, etc”
Pursuing sales channels paired with targeted product is a path taken by many brands seeking to establish core followings and for most brands already marketing and selling to the authenticity-seeking Millennial Generation. We know this strategic design and business strategy works, and we want it to work for your business.

We Do The Very Best We Can To Make Each Piece Perfect, But It Is The Sole Responsibility Of The Client To Proof Every Element.
