Warrior T-Shirt

My last Fail Campaign Friday post Local Town T-Shirts promised a follow up t-shirt campaign so here it is! This post is about a quick shirt design that ended up losing me over $400 over an infringement claim. On April 8th of 2014 a wrestling hero from my past, The Ultimate Warrior, passed away.

Glee PPV Internet Marketing Ads

Another Friday another funny failed campaign. Who would’ve thought that people wouldn’t sign up for CPA offers just because it had their favorite TV Show actors on it? A while back I was working on some projects on my computer and my wife had a friend over. It was a young girl she used to baby sit who was probably 18-19 at the time.
