It’s Feature Friday! Once a month we choose a favortie local business to feature on our website. We want our customers and clients to know the businesses that we have come to know and love! Today we are featuring one of the most amazing small local businesses we have in the Capital and Adirondack Regions of New York.
I met Rick and Lois Melito at a vendor fair held at the Glen at Highland Meadows in Queensbury, NY. I love vendor fairs because of the chance to chat with all the people! Get me talking and I’m a happy girl! As I took a few minutes to walk around the other vendors booths I was drawn to Rick’s work. I asked him lots of questions and learned all about what he does and why he’s different. Rick is not just a shirt maker. He is a screen printer. He prints the shirts by hand and most importantly he is an artist first and foremost. Rick designs all the shirts he makes.
His beautiful wife Lois helps him and they travel around selling their art at art shows around the area. A lot of his work is focused on the Adirondacks. He has a great love for this region. He has a great love for his art. He has a great love for people. Rick and Lois surround themselves with some of the most amazing people. When you’re friend’s with the Melito’s you are FAMILY. They have shown that to us time and time again. What a blessing these two are in our lives!
Rick wanted some new photos for his website a few years ago. So we got together at my in-laws farm and placed the shirts all over the place taking pictures with different backgrounds to showcase his art. Since then we have added models!! We have done 3-4 shoots with models. They are always a blast!
So I present to you One on 1 Design, the art of Rick Melito, the Happy Camper, and the great One on 1 Design family! Check out their website as well!
