I launched Inclined Designs in 2008 first as Hey Baby! Boutique, with a focus on items for infants like appliqué tees and tutus. I expanded the scope of the business, offering additional children’s clothing, silicone teething necklaces, and items for new and expectant moms. After building out the brand to include adult clothing and Pittsburgh-themed products, we also added a line of snarky, sweary and trend setting designs that let you express your uncensored self.
When I’m not wrangling my daughter, working at my day job in the steel industry, or dreaming up new designs, I devote time to helping new small business owners establish their business and branding. I also work as a part-time event coordinator for several local markets and love mentoring the next generation of business owners, paying forward my decade-plus of industry knowledge to help everyone thrive.
ABOUT THE SHOP:
Inclined Designs has blossomed into a business that celebrates women’s creativity and prioritizes community engagement. I present new designs on social media before they are produced to allow for real-time customer feedback. I also support local fundraising efforts by working with sports teams, school bands, and other organizations to design custom products from tees to totes for their causes.
My current product line is a colorful array of everyday items and clothing that feature sassy and sweary syaings. My favorite line is Burgh Bits, an illustrated fabric design that incorporates homages to Pittsburgh: parking chairs, pierogi, bridges, keystones, and ketchup bottles. Items in the line include kids’ clothing, magnets, keychains, and more, allowing customers to show their hometown pride in a variety of ways.
