Lately we have been asked a lot, what’s the inspiration behind our designs? what inspires our tongue-in-cheek and humorous designs?
Well, the truth is that all members of the Fun Education Tees team have worked for the education sector. While we truly believe that education is important, we have watched the sector change dramatically over the past several decades. Now, long gone are the days when a college degree guaranteed stable employment.
The invention of the Internet has made it possible for everyone out there to have side hustles. Often, the dream is to turn a side hustle into a successful business, giving the owner the opportunity to quit their day job. All members of the Fun Education Tees team have seized this great opportunity and created side hustles. As a result, we now see ourselves as college graduate entrepreneurs. Our transformation is the inspiration behind our designs.
Going back a generation or two, our parents had to attend college to learn and master a profession in order to make a living out of it, often getting into debt in the process. Nowadays, if we want to learn a new skill or just how to perform a particular task, in most cases all we have to do is to look it up on the Internet and we quickly find instructions or video on how to do it, and most of all … it’s free!
Now, knowledge is at our fingertips, and better yet, we don’t have to acquire a student loan to gain access to it! Not unless you want to become a doctor, lawyer or other specialized professional, and then college is still a must!
So with this great change in mind, we began to design our t-shirts. Ultimately, by creating our humorous tees, we want to encourage people to laugh, think and chat about the future of education.
Creating a side hustle can become a game changer. It has been for us. It has shown us that we have abilities we didn’t know we had and also helped us develop new skills we weren’t taught at college. And, that’s the inspiration behind our designs.
So, we are college graduate side hustlers! Are you one too?
