Our Story

How the FEEK did all this come about?

In 1982, a frustrated 13 year-old needed to shout EVERYTHING they were feeling.
To avoid hurting anyone’s feelings or being grounded, the kid created a big head on two legs to stand and do the shouting instead. A voice, a friend, a partner in crime, the ultimate mouthpiece. FEEK.
From puberty through adulthood FEEK was there. Then one day that kid realized: We all need a hand, or a head, to help get out the wild thoughts we feel every day. 
SnerkShirts by FEEK was created. You’re welcome.



Who is FEEK? 

FEEK is a big head on two feet. FEEK is the voice we use when we have something to say but don't know how to say it. FEEK has no gender.

FEEK is here.

What's a SNERK?  

A SNERK is what FEEK shouts.  It's snark with heart. 

Our dictionary definition is -
Noun: A shoutable word or phrase, motivated by any combination of emotions, that must be expressed in order to stay sane.

SNERKs set you free.



What's that super special SHIRT FONT?

All SNERKs are written in a proprietary font called NickScratch. Inspired by graffiti and the need to write quickly.  

Born with FEEK in 1982, it became the SNERK signature font in 2018.



Who the FEEK are we? 

Nick DeMatteo created FEEK when he was a wee lad in middle school. With an off-center, rock 'n' roll humor, FEEK helped him navigate the rocky waters of puberty and beyond. 

Cathryn Lundgren grew up as a young photographer who relied on pictures to express herself when words escaped her. Which was often.

They met in 2017, paired up in a short play festival, laughing their way through rehearsals for a piece on existential dread. The match was made. 

Nick introduced Cathryn to FEEK and his love of t-shirts. Cathryn told Nick of her desire to create a business that could do some good. In 2018 SnerkShirts by FEEK was born. 

C+N (Cathryn plus Nick) have learned as lifelong performers that sometimes the only way through is out! Nonsense, improv, music, goof, etc are essential for dealing with stress and making life more fun. And when ya don't know how to let it out #wearyourweird.
