Turning what they loved into more than just a hobby


The First Shirt

It all started when GV teamed up with the Cavs and Quicken Loans to create a time-lapsed video of George etching a portrait of LeBron James on the Etch A Sketch. They created a whole campaign around it called, "One Town. One Team. One Dream". It was the first time GV designed and produced a t-shirt from start to finish, and found they really enjoyed the process. Launched during the NBA Finals, this video quickly jumped to 1 million views on YouTube in just a few days. It was picked by 20/20 and YouTube as one of the top viral videos of 2007 and the start of something great.
