"Let’s face it: if you’re single, it can be challenging to meet other available singles. While out and about, you may have encountered people who have caught your eye and wished you had a way to let them know you’re single and available—without having to come right out and say it. It’s a rare kind of confidence that allows a person to walk up to a cute stranger and say, “I’m available and interested—are you?”
You don’t want to kick yourself later for not taking the opportunity to find out if this person is also single, available—and interested. But what if you were to wear an ice-breaker that did this for you instead?
Tamera Lawrence and Kristin Moore are the founding partners of SingleTease—an online product company specializing in various types of “conversation starters.” These two designers have developed products to help singles connect face-to-face, using t-shirts, water bottles, clever business-style cards that provide information for getting in touch, and even shirts for your dog to help message your singlehood.
It’s a fun, hip, laid-back way of taking the pressure off of talking with someone face-to-face, and letting them know your status. Now when you leave the house, you can throw on a t-shirt that says, “Apply here (if you’re single).”
Launched in 2007, SingleTease has three employees and draws on the owners’ combined experience in branding and graphic design. Tamera and Kristin relocated from Washington, D.C. to Venice to expand their vision of developing ideas into products that can help improve the lives of single people.
And this dynamic design team is excited and inspired by what they’ve found in Venice: “The entrepreneurial spirit is creative, alive and active!”
