LIFE IS GOOD FESTIVAL
Celebrating life’s simple pleasures.
Life is Good Company
In 1989, Bert and John Jacobs designed their first tee-shirt. They knew nothing about the business. For five years, the brothers hawked tee shirts in the streets of Boston and traveled the East Coast, selling door-to-door in college dormitories.
In 1994, John sketched Jake’s face than the brothers decided to print Jake’s with the 3 word phrase “Life is Good”, they printed up 48 Jake shirts for a local street fair in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They laid the shirts out on their rickety card table. By noontime, all 48 of those tees were gone. A star was born.
Soon Jake was introduced to local retailers, and his simple message of optimism was embraced like nothing the brothers had ever seen. As demand for product soared, Jake’s team grew, and the Little Brand That Could began to spread across America.
