We’re tiny. Really tiny. Well, not tiny as in “hung like a hamster” tiny, but small enough. We are the brainchild of a handful of idiots in Metro Detroit. You know Detroit. It used to be in Michigan. The locals pretend that it still is. We’ve been in the commercial art and graphic design business for a long time, but as the city has decayed around us, so have the prospects for easy money in the advertising world. Hell, we used to be able to eat pretty well off of putting together Chrysler catalogs once a year, but you folks around the world have told us to grow up and stop relying on cars to make a living. Well, we listened. We had to. All the business dried up. And we weren’t rich enough to move to where the work is, like the Sun belt. Or Mumbai. So, here we are, selling t-shirts and posters on the internet.
Growling Hamster is the website face of Conceptsmart, Inc. That’s the official, tell-the-IRS-our-deepest-darkest-secrets business entity. If you actually buy something from us, your credit card statement will indicate Conceptsmart, Inc. as the company with whom you’ve done business. It’s even tinier than Growling Hamster.
Why “Growling Hamster”? Well, we’re pissed off about the dire prospects for the automotive business, and the resulting panic, depression, social collapse, cultural malaise and soul-searching experienced by the entire Midwestern United States, which explains all the growling. And, as we mentioned, we’re small. Small like a hamster, but mean enough to eat each other if need be. Just like a hamster. Lovely pets, those, and a nice allegory for the people around this part of the world, as it turns out.
Seriously, we value your interest and the potential to actually sell you something. If you like what you see. let us know. You can comment on our News page, or send us a nice note at our CONTACT page. Send us naked pictures, too, if you’d like. Well, you can if you’re of legal age. Send us gifts, too. Or cheese. Or crates of filet mignons. If you can convert a hunk of sharp cheddar into a PDF file, and successfully attach it to an e-mail, we’ll hire ya.
