Finding New River George

SG-New-River-George

Time for some adventure with New River George at New River Gorge in West Virginia.

New River Gorge is known for some of the world's best white water rafting. They also are a place for adventure, relaxation and lots of other outdoor activities.

Given that there is a lot to do at New River Gorge, the New River Gorge Convention and Visitor Center staffed a guide to show people all the fun stuff in the area. That's where New River George comes in.

“Just call me the Steve Irwin of Appalachia,” George said. “I know this wild place better than anyone!”

New River George is an awesome guide to the area and just full of stuff... You can follow him on Instagram as he goes on adventures around New River Gorge with #FollowGeorge and #NewRiverGeorge.

This social media adventure guide had to spread the word by more than just mouth with a colorful line up of full color stickers. These custom stickers feature New River George and information on where to find him along with his companions Quinn the Peregrine, Oakey the Raccoon, Ani the Otter, and Monty the Dog.

We are so excited that New River Gorge came up with such a fun way to welcome travelers to their area and have a playful way to learn. The fun sticker designs mixed in amps up their marketing campaign to a whole new level of epic.

The National Park Poster Project: Successfully Funded!

StickerGiant helped to successfully fund The National Park Poster Project

StickerGiant loves to help small businesses, independent entrepreneurs and creative artists with their endeavors when we can. We love our home state of Colorado and we truly enjoy helping fellow residents, which is why we recently contributed to The National Park Poster Project campaign on Kickstarter.

We're happy to report that the project was successfully funded! This means that the National Park posters from the 1930's and '40's that were started and never finished will now have a place in America's hearts as Rob Decker works tirelessly to finish the art he holds so dear. As a personal study under Ansel Adams, Decker has a special love for the National Parks and now we can all share in his heart's endeavors.

Following your dreams is something we should all be working towards, which is why The National Park Poster Project means so much to StickerGiant. We're so glad we could help this project come to fruition!

Are you ready to share your passion with the world? We can help! Start creating your own world-class set of stickers, and one of our Sticker Experts will get them to you in no time!

 

Kickstart the Art with the National Park Poster Project

StickerGiant supports the National Park Poster Kicstarter campaign

Our country is full of natural wonders that are just waiting to be seen - from fall leaves to snow-capped mountains and every landmark in between - which is why the National Park Service is your best friend. They've been working hard for the last 98 years to make sure you have a natural, beautiful place to take your family, hike, relax and see the sights in a safe, comfortable environment. With 59 parks in 27 states, there is no shortage of adventure should you go looking for it.

In the 1930's and '40's, the Works Progress Administration started a series of artwork to showcase the country's natural park system, but the project was abandoned over time as more pressing matters needed attending to. Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker is a Colorado man who has taken on the task of finishing these posters in the same style the WPA used during their original run, but he needs your help! A Kickstarter campaign called the National Park Poster Project  has been started to help Rob meet his financial goals so the project can forge ahead.

StickerGiant has donated to his Kickstarter campaign because we love art and appreciate our great state of Colorado, which is home to four national parks of its own. Any time we can support a fellow artist, count us in! Stickers are a great form of artistic expression, so if you're ready to take your projects to the next level we're ready to help!
