The story behind the new 88Nine shirt

640 426

Each drive, we work with local artists to design a new member t-shirt and achieve three main objectives:

  1. Create something special for our contributing members, to say thank you for donating!
  2. Capture the “feel” and brand of Radio Milwaukee
  3. Allow the artist to express their individual vision and interpretation of who Radio Milwaukee is

I’m always impressed with the final product, but this spring I’m particularly excited (all bias aside) about this shirt. Yes, we achieved the three main objectives that we always seek to achieve, but this time it’s so much more than a shirt. The process, and ultimately the design, epitomizes the spirit of collaboration, community-building and creativity that make me proud to be a Radio Milwaukee employee and a contributing member.

The spring 2019 Radio Milwaukee membership drive shirt

This spring we partnered with Islands of Brilliance (IOB), a Milwaukee nonprofit that builds programs and learning experiences developed specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum, to design our exclusive shirt!

Islands of Brilliance utilizes project-based learning and one-on-one mentorship to grow students’ intrinsic capabilities and practice communication, increasing their likelihood of independence as adults. IOB students leave with intangibles that are far broader and more important—a collaborative experience, sharing and presentation opportunities, conversation, friendship and most of all, a sense of accomplishment.
