Muldrow Girl Sells Design To GAP

GAP, a popular clothing retailer has ordered 15,000 units of a T-shirt design from Danielle Kling of Muldrow.  Kling is a graphic design student at University of Ark -Ft. Smith.  She made the design as part of a project in her Digital Illustration class.  Students submitted designs into a weekly contest.  They would submit them on Threadless, an online clothing retailer, which sells designs that are creat- ed by online users.  GAP partnered with Threadless to sell the website's clothing merchandise at se- lect GAP locations.

Even though Kling's design did not win the contest, she received an email from GAP showing interest in buying her design.  It took several months after she signed the contract to hear anything back from them, but approximately seven months after receiving the first email, she received a royalty check in the mail.

Kling got the idea for her design while at her house working on sketches for her project.  She notice a spider outside her window that had been there for almost a week.  Kling began to think about the spi- der building a web.  Thus came her design, a blue print diagramming a spider web titled "Web Con- struction".
