Episode 60 – Shop Talk with Jordandene


Hey Rebels!  

Today we totally geeked out with Jordan Ellis from Jordandené.  Jordandené is a Brooklyn-based, woman-owned, small business. Their casually geeky apparel and home goods are subtle enough to actually be used in everyday life. Their design team uses traditional ink and brush techniques to create unique, hand-lettered designs. They choose messages that both strike a chord with hardcore fans and promote positive messages to everyone who sees them.

This episode was fun and inspiring!  We chat about finding your niche,, Comic Con, and working with her equally creative husband.  This is a must listen!
