This year’s merchandise graphic was designed by Tamara “Tami” Haring.

Tami, who also designed last year’s merchandise logo, has her own graphic design, advertising, branding and Web business in Oley (Pa). and is a graduate of Kutztown State College (now Kutztown University).

In the past, she has worked for the advertising department of Smith Kline and French (currently GlaxoSmithKline), Kutztown Publishing Company, Gilbert Commonwealth’s advertising department (currently Worley Parsons), Tom Sheehan Worldwide (advertising/marketing agency), and various freelance projects.

When Tami isn’t designing, she enjoys community work, gardening, cooking and travel.

The fest merchandise committee will have a wide variety of souvenirs with Tami’s logo available for fans during the fest.
