Learn more about how YPMO teamed up with the local brand!
If you live in the Valley, you have likely seen the eye-catching “State 48” design on anything from T-shirts to bumper stickers. The brand, State Forty Eight, was founded in 2013 by local entrepreneurs, who all shared a great love for the state of Arizona. The brand represents community and serves as an expression of pride for those who call Arizona home. Aligned with State 48’s values, YPMO saw an opportunity to collaborate with the local brand and put our own spin on the design.
Our company’s purpose is to provide public information and outreach services to the community, and although we are a small but mighty team, it takes a network of people to meet our goal of making sure the public is educated on the projects that affect them. This inspired the collaboration with State 48. Our design highlights the many faces involved in public outreach. From construction workers to City councilmembers, we all play a part.
Collaboration with State 48 goes beyond seeing our design come to life, as the brand donates one dollar to their foundation for every shirt sold. The State Forty Eight Foundation’s vision is to foster a vibrant and prosperous Arizona that puts local business and community enrichment at the forefront. This is achieved through educational workshops for entrepreneurs, an entrepreneur speaker series, and many more community programs and events.
Now we have our own State 48 x YPMO merch to proudly flaunt around town! To learn more about State 48 or if you would like your very own State 48 shirt, go to www.statefortyeight.com.
