Our Team's Favorite Designs

Why we do what we do

It's a definitely big idea. And there's no doubt a lot of responsibility when you make a statement like this. But we take it to heart. It's our "why". It's the reason we wake up and get excited about what we do. We care about our team. We care about creating high-quality art. We care about the customers who trust us to bring their dreams to life. Our "why" is something that we take very seriously. And we set out to do it every single day.

Where are we

We're anywhere you want to be. From towering skylines in the Northeast to the sunny shores of the West Coast, and everywhere in between, our team shows that creativity has no bounds.


Heather Beard

UTees Contract Artist

"My favorite part about being on the UTees Art Team IS my team. I work with a wonderful group of individuals, and despite the fact that we aren't always together we still have fun. My time with UTees has been a rewarding experience and I love that I have grown and improved in my skills over the years. I have become a better designer and artist because of it. I also can't forget the amazing friendships that I made along the way too."

Peyton Roberts

UTees Contract Artist

"Being a part of the UTees team is a lot of fun! Every day is full of new and exciting projects, and I've been given lots of opportunities to let my own style and personality shine through my work."

Carrie Happel

UTees Full Time Artist

"I've loved these last 3 and a half years at University Tees. I've learned so much through the years and the Art Team is always so incredibly kind and helpful. The art requests keep every day different while the new trends each semester keep me learning new Illustrator and Photoshop techniques!"


Why do we staff seasonally?

During our busiest times of year (Aug to Nov & Feb to Apr), we receive a CRAZY amount of requests for artwork! The nature of our business creates high peaks and valleys (that coincide with school semesters) which means we need a rockstar team to help us during our peaks. We GREATLY value our team of seasonal contract artists for this reason and hope that by giving them access to a position with great flexibility and community, we can attract talented artists to work with us during our harvest season.

Am I able to work part-time?

Absolutely, we always can accommodate a few part-time seasonal contract artists, especially students who are currently in design school. Just be aware that spaces are limited, since we are only able to accommodate so many part-time artists at once.

What if I'm interested in making artwork but not in a seasonal graphic design position?

We may have a position available for you as a freelance illustrator! Ask us about our UTees Resource Artist Program which encompasses all of our amazing illustrators and graphic designers we work with every season. There is a separate application process for this program, so reach out to us if you are interested. For more information, please contact our Art Director, Sam Grusell, at: We would be happy to send you more information.
