Chatty Tees Australia?
Hello! I’m Michelle Stewart – the designer, creator and owner of Chatty Tees Australia. I am grateful to live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland where I truly enjoy every day in this forward-thinking, beautiful and supportive environment around me.
I’m a graphic designer and over the past 4 years I have collaborated with many amazing charities and community groups such as SunnyKids, Connect Community Plus Kids, Noosa Biosphere Reserve Foundation and STEMM. In each group I witnessed the vast amount of effort, time and frustration that went into raising awareness and money to fund the significant work they do. These beautiful groups always compliment me on my contribution of making all things looking wonderful for their campaigns, but really, they are the stars.
It got me thinking! how can I use my skills to help them improve and innovate their efforts in brand awareness and fund raising, enabling them to focus more on their passion and impacts on the community. With some research I discovered most groups don’t have an online merchandise store, a budget for merchandise or the technical and design skills. Designing, organising, marketing, and shipping merchandise, is expensive, risky and takes HEAPS of time. These groups have better things to do….. and so the idea of Chatty Tees was born!!
