R.E.W.O.P. clothing "Recognizing EmpoWerment Of the People", is not just a black community empowering movement, but also a clothing line that brings recognition and homage to the power of all people, when we unite as one. R.E.W.O.P. is designed to mostly impact the way you feel and perceive life, and less how you look. With R.E.W.O.P. clothing I plan to infuse urban, and trendy clothing with positive quotes, messaging, my logo; creating what I like to call, "Swag with Substance."

Enhanced Greeting Cards
posted by Matt Nolan

The idea is to integrate videos into traditional paper-based greeting cards (e.g. holiday care, birth announcements cards, birthday card, get well soon cards, etc.) . I anticipate the video running no more than 15-30 seconds and would use an app to facilitate the process from recorder to manufacturer. Contact me for further information.
