Our design "Shaka the new LIKE" went VIRAL!

Late one night, I was creating some Facebook graphics for  website and was trying to come up with something more original to go along with Hawaii theme.   My rubbah slippah social media icons piled up, were a hit so it was time to top it.

I had been staring at the Facebook LIKE graphic for too long …so I decided it needed an overhaul.

I shared it on my personal Facebook page and pinned it.  Within the hour, DJ Maleko from Clear Channel’s Star 101.9 put on the Clear Channel site and Facebook page.  Within days it had over 14,000 likes on Island 98.5.  It was being repinned like crazy and was starting to show up on hundreds of local websites and blogs.

Within a week, it was reported in Seattle, Colorado, Texas and Florida!

After several requests we created 3000 t-shirts which sold out in 1 week.  I hope to make more at some point.  But for  now you can get them HERE.

A great example of the power of the internet.

    I would like to use this on our site. We sell surf boards in California. I also want to use this in a design I am working on for a board that promotes our Facebook page. Is that ok? I would be happy to send you some free gifts from our store. Or pay for a license? What kind of beach activities do you do? (surf, dive?)
