#12 Becky Tomac: How to Build a Memorable Brand

August 27, 2018

Becky Tomac is the founder and creator of Oh Geez! Design, a one-woman graphic design studio located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Becky grew up on a farm and ranch in South Dakota with three creative sisters and has always had a love for making and creating.

With a background in graphic design, Becky opened her Oh Geez! Design Etsy Shop in 2007 where she offered her “I love pickles” greeting cards. A few years later, Becky’s “I love cheese” and “I love bacon” designs were featured on Taste of Home and Food Network magazines that is when her business really started to take off.

Becky sells her items on Etsy and sells wholesale to local shops in South Dakota and across the country. Her passion for small business, shopping locally, creativity, and building a genuine brand is evident in our conversation, and I can’t wait for you to hear all she has to say!
