The company that we designed was called Atlantica Apparel Co. This company idea came from myself personally because I am from the East Coast and love the ocean so much. I wanted to express my passion for water sports such as cliff jumping and boating and put it into a clothing company. We initially started of some cool designs and names for the line, but after much effort and collaboration we finally were able to come up with our final products.

These products were various long sleeve shirts that can be sold to people across the world, but our specific target audience is teenagers who have been to the East Coast before or currently live there. We created classy and comfortable shirts so that it could resonate with the teenage trend. Our business model canvas explains how marketing is critical to us. While we have to focus on production and shipping, marketing with key sponsors such as famous celebrities is critical and expensive. On top of that, brand image is another major emphasis since the mission behind our brand is the real selling point.
