Once upon a time, there was a bespectacled chick with funky fresh hair (that would be me) who was tired of the constant barrage of advertising and marketing that seemed to saturate every aspect of modern life. Everywhere she turned, she was bombarded with messages that felt fake, insincere, and sometimes downright deceitful. She longed for a world where honesty was the norm, not the exception.
One day, this chick had a curious idea. What if she created a brand that was refreshingly honest? A brand that told it like it is, without any of the usual fluff or spin. She could call it But No, For Real, a name that perfectly encapsulated her commitment to honesty and transparency, as well as her warped sense of humor.
She started small. She created a few poster designs with slogans like “Blazing a Trail with Dumpster Fires” and “Coffee Keeps Me From Killing People” – messages that were honest, relatable, and a little bit funny. She started posting them on her social media, and to her surprise, her images quickly gained a following!
As word of mouth spread, more and more people began to take notice of But No, For Real. People were drawn to the brand’s commitment to authenticity, and its utter ridiculousness. They appreciated the way that the chick’s images expressed their own thoughts and feelings in a genuine (and sarcastic) way.
Over time, the business grew and expanded to include a wide range of products, from mugs and wall art to shirts and hats. But no matter how big the brand became, its commitment to sincerity and silliness never wavered. And that’s how But No, For Real became the go-to brand for people who wanted to keep it real.
