LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ye Republic (https://yerepublic.com/) recently unveiled its signature series of t-shirts, mugs and other merchandise emblazoned with sarcastic and funny themes, with the inaugural collection offering takes from the often-tumultuous year of 2020. Founded by Ada Desravines, who was herself a victim of a layoff due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ye Republic was formed in large part as a creative outlet. The current line of themed apparel and mugs include "This Is Not a Test: This Is 2020," and "Can We Just Cancel 2020 Already?" slogans – now offered with free shipping for a limited time.
With unprecedented job loss nationwide since February 2020, and no guarantees that those jobs will ever return, many out-of-work residents began looking for alternate ways to generate income. Utilizing her experience as an advertiser, coupled with graphic design skills, Desravines began designing an entire line of funny, 2020-themed products to express the current temperament of many Americans. Sharing how she originally developed the concept for the line, Desravines noted:
"Most of us did not see this year coming. But instead of focusing on the grim nature of all that's happening, I thought taking a more tongue-in-cheek approach might help make people smile. And I look forward to growing Ye Republic with new designs and product lines in the future. 2020 has essentially bottomed-out almost everything; so, the only way to go from here is up. I want my company to be an inspiration to others – you never have to look very far to figure out how to apply your skills toward making ends meet. Always be willing to look in your current career field and see how your skillset can be applied in other ways, or even in other industries."
