Inspired by my late grandfather, W. Vernon Carls, an entrepreneur himself back in his day, I began this side business in 1996. The main direction was to help new businesses and shops with their signage needs. Early on I worked with a number of small shops here in downtown Racine ,WI, creating their logo, tag lines and info as vinyl-cut decals for their storefront signage. At this time, I also began working on motion picture projects as a designer with a good friend of mine. You can find more information on the film side under the Motion Picture tab.
In 2009, I redirected my decal business focus. As an avid cyclist and cycling fan, I started contacting teams, riders and affiliated companies. Slowly getting responses, I started developing a wide range of contacts and clients. I am humbled to have built relationships with so many in the sport, including amateur/casual, pro, and club riders/teams along with affiliated companies. I branched out in 2012 working with a few NFL players as well. Beyond sports, I work with anyone who needs their logo
or idea transformed into a specialty custom vinyl-cut decal. I'll brainstorm with individuals, clubs, charities, businesses and companies around the globe to promote their brand,
mission and idea.
In 2013 I started working for the US Military Endurance Sports Team, as Creative Director, where I design all our gear and also provide our Military members worldwide with any custom decal requests for their bikes and vehicles.
