Ryan Pimental, a 20-year old Wentworth Institute of Technology student of civil engineering, is exercising a bit of entrepreneurial savvy with his new business, reports South Coast Today. Combining Boston’s love of ice cream – Pimental told the website that the city scoops more of the frozen dessert each year than any other place in the world – with punchy grahic design, Pimental created Boston Cream.
He splashes brightly-colored renditions of Massachusetts, the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge and the Boston skyline across shirts, belt buckles and pins, selling them at local events and on his website: www.boston-cream.com, which has "Wicked Cheap Shipping."
"When designing the line, I wanted something that would stand out and appeal to all generations, with the target audience being New England, the City of Boston and the area in general," Pimental told South Coast Today reporter Sarah Gonet. The Wentworth student also emphasized that his shirts are manufactured and printed in the U.S.
Like any good web entrepreneur, Pimental has a blog, covering Boston’s history, photography, sports and graphic design. So when he graduates from Wentworth, Pimental will have more than just an engineering degree – he’ll have the business savvy to put it to work.[Via South Coast Today]
