About Us

We are Jen & Doug--the creative and business minds and hearts behind Local T. Jen has loved design since, well, always. She graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and spent a decade in graphic design at Disney. Then Doug (yay!) + a move to the Midwest and two wonderful sons happened. But she never stopped designing on the side, whether it was funky bras for charity or personalized dishes for kids.

Then, in 2016, along came Local T. Building a company around helping people feel good sharing--and wearing--their hometown pride has been an absolute dream. The daughter of a cafe-owner, Jen always hoped to have her own business that allowed her to work alongside people in the community. With Local T, it's the best of both worlds. Once people began responding to her vintage(ish) shirts featuring high-quality materials and one-of-a-kind designs, Doug hopped on board to help with sales, and Local T's been growing ever since.
