Company Background
Mikey’s Graphic Tees is a small Charleston, SC -based graphic t-shirt company that reaches surrounding cities and has found its way to Asia. With ten years of experience and a team of over sixty employees we are committed to environmental consciousness in the fashion industry. Our enthusiastic and entrepreneurial attitude to business has created strong relationships with both manufacturers and distributors throughout North America and Asia. We have an established client base throughout these global markets comprised of both independent and major retailers.
With the booming fashion scene in Asia, Mikey’s Graphic Tees has a greater chance of being recognized and promoted. Competition in the Asian market, nevertheless, is intense and companies that choose to place their products in that country should be aware that Japanese buyers prefer to maintain long relationships with vendors rather than one point buying. According to Mercedes Gonzales of the Global Purchasing Group, “Small is the new big.” By this she meant that big box stores have become more of an inconvenience. What “retailers need to address is how to create personalized service and products. To adapt a grass roots mentality.” The success of Mikey’s Graphic Tees is founded on the creation of this personalized experience, enduring relationships within the industry, and the importance of maintaining high environment friendly products and solid partnerships with our clients. Both of these men’s wear collections have been met with critical acclaim and have seen unprecedented sales growth, further evidence of our commitment to high standards.
Strategic Mission Statement

...Essay on “Disney World Signage” and “That Pesky Television Test Pattern” Reading these articles really has shown just how much the Graphic Design field has progressed since the 1900’s. Seeing the process and understanding how effective designs can be and how efficiently signs can be used is so fascinating. Along with the concept of signage as a way of advertising, television had quite an impact on the world of Graphic Design. Walt Disney World is such a magnificent place to see. All the remarkable attractions help a person to escape to a fantasy world where everyone can be a kid again. In 2002 I took my daughter there and even with it being very commercialized, it really felt like we were in another world. Going through Cinderella’s castle, having lunch with Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet, and the outstanding lighted parades every night were such memorable moments. The eye catching features all around create an ambience, which people not only need in life, but desire. For instance, all the live characters actually walking around throughout the parks and mingling with children and adults is a great example of the involvement a person will encounter. It is so amazing to think with the right angle, one can capture an individual’s attention and it can be instilled into memory long term. Television is another astounding invention that even though it started out in the 1920’s; by 1930’s there were a few hundred commercially available. The test pattern created was used...

...What are graphic organizers and why are they important? Graphic organizers are visual representations of knowledge, concepts, and ideas to help students understand meaning and relationships between facts and terms within a learning task (Strangman, 2002). It is important that content being taught in the classroom is structured in a way that helps the students organize key concepts and related details. Graphic organizers are used to help students organize key concepts and related details. They help students map out ideas visually and are visual aids for learning and instruction (Instructional Strategies Online, 2013). Graphic organizers help students be actively involved in their learning process and also helps them discover new information and make connections that they did not think of or know before. A K-W-L chart is an example of a graphic organizer. It is broken up into three columns label K, W, and L. This chart is used to list what the students already know, what they want to know, and what they learned at the end of the unit. This graphic organizer activates the students’ prior knowledge and gets them thinking about the topic and what they want to know. It allows the students to organize the information they are learning and keeps them engaged and interested in the unit. K-W-L charts are a great way for students to organize their thoughts and learning and a way for teachers to direct instruction throughout a unit. The lesson I will use to teach the students how to...

Graphic Rating Scale

...Graphic Rating Scales Definition: ← The oldest and most widely method used for performance appraisal. ← A scale that allows the rater to indicate an employee’s performance on a variety of job behaviors. ← The Rating Scale is a form on which the manager simply checks off the employee’s level of performance. Graphic rating scales require an evaluator to indicate on a scale the degree to which an employee demonstrates a particular trait, behavior, or performance result. Rating forms are composed of a number of scales, each relating to a certain job or performance-related dimension, such as job knowledge, responsibility, or quality of work. Each scale is a continuum of scale points, or anchors, which range from high to low, from good to poor, from most to least effective, and so forth. Scales typically have from five to seven points, though they can have more or less. Graphic rating scales may or may not define their scale points. How is it used? ← It is used to indicate on a scale the degree to which an employee demonstrates a particular trait, behavior, or performance result. Acceptable rating scales should have the following characteristics: 1. Performance dimensions should be clearly defined. 2. Scales should be behaviorally based so that a rater is able to support all ratings with objective, observable evidence. 3. Abstract trait names such as "loyalty," "honesty," and "integrity" should be avoided unless they can be defined in terms...

...Running head: Graphic Organizers 1 Graphic Organizers Sumera Shakir Western Governors University Graphic Organizers 2 Graphic Organizers When introducing any concept to students, it is vital that teachers structure content in a clear and organized way. Using visual tools and charts, or graphic organizers, is one way to facilitate this process for all types of students. Not only do they help organize the idea or concept by breaking it down into simpler parts, making it easier to understand for students, it also helps teachers gather and organize their thought process and execution of the objective (Hall & Strangman, 2012). One type of graphic organizer is the “Spider Map”. It consists of a large center oval with four set of long arms extending from the center. Each arm, then, has two or more horizontal lines next to it. The center oval contains the “Concept, Theme, or Topic”. Each of the long legs are a “Main Idea”, and each of the horizontal lines are “Details” . This type of graphic organizer is useful when there is no hierarchy to the information (Hall & Strangman, 2012). In Mathematics, students are introduced to different types of triangles. Identifying the different types of triangles can become confusing for many students. A measurable learning objective is: Given four different triangles, students will give the name of each triangle and list the attributes associated with...

...Graphic organizers are visual tools that can help students understand lessons that they otherwise might not be able to grasp. The ideas of a lesson are written down on paper in a way that shows a clear map or relationship between what the lesson is on. Graphic organizers can be used for many different lessons including math, literature and history. One effect way of using a graphic organizer is to explain the time line of the Lewis and Clark expedition. For this I would use a series of events chain. To begin with this lesson, we would first read about the journey that Lewis and Clark took across the country. After reading is complete I would hand out sheets that had a series of events chain organizer already drawn on the paper. I would also have my own similar graphic organizer up on the board. I would then explain to my students how a series of events chain worked. I would explain how in the first box, the beginning of an event would be written down. To give them a clear understanding of this, I would talk about how a series of events chain would look based on their life so far. I would tell them in the first box, their birth date would be written down. I would also explain that other information could be used in that box as well, like where they were born or how much they weighed. I would then explain how the second box could contain the date that they first slept through the night. The third box could have the date of when they said their first word and what that word...

We are going to visit the Artists and their Art and try and determine the themes they were trying to portray and the effect it might have on the World Today. According to (Karen Farley 2012) “these pictures helped shape the public’s perception of The Great Depression.” http://www.english.illinois.edu/maps/depression/artgallery.htm we are going to see the depression, anger, deceit, and hate enthralled during The Great Depression. Now let us see that we as a people will endure in this vast economic turmoil of today, March 3rd, 2012, through the eyes of the people in October of 1929 to 1942. The first picture in the prior link is by one Robert Minor Copyrighted in 1916 this is actually before the Great Depression but depicts the coming of it, by illustrating the Army or Police in that time killing maybe some of the unemployed during riots leading up to the Great Depression. We all know that the Great Depression started way before the actual date. We are going to now skip to six years later to the 1922 picture by Robert Minor, Morgan, Mellon, and Rockefeller.
