Design Tribe™

Meet The Team

We have multiple personalities at Design Tribe, and that’s just fine with us! It’s our crazy, fun staff that makes us who we are. From sports fanatics to skate-boarders, musicians to vegetarians, the Design Tribe family gets the job done right every time. We’re Fort Wayne’s Premiere Custom T Shirt shop. 

Although we sort of stumbled into this business, we have a clear mission of what we’re about. Let’s be honest, we’re basically obsessed with you Hoosiers! Your happiness is our happiness. We want to help share your message using quality custom graphics & custom apparel and make sure you have a great time doing it. We’ve whipped up a straight-forward recipe to help us do just that: being customer centered, maintaining pristine integrity and character, focusing on the bottom line to expand our audience and continue to grow, and finally, nurturing the fun, family atmosphere among our team. These core values are evident in everything we do, from customer service to art to production.

Design Tribe was birthed out of popular demand to be honest. In 2006, the founder Randy Conrad was an IT Manager for a fairly large law firm and was getting special order requests to make custom sports apparel for Attorney’s kids & team in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area. A business venture began as well as a love affair.  One thing led to another and this unintentional adventure eventually became the real deal! With a world-wide customer base as our foundation, Design Tribe has grown into a thriving, robust company specializing in custom t-shirts and adding more members to our family each year.

Where we excel:

Design Tribe delivers Urban & Sports custom designs. Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers. We also offer custom memorial merchandise and custom graphics. 

Design Tribe has over 10 years of experience in custom apparel industry and is passionate about exceeding your expectations.
