“We try not to think of it as direct, even though this is our heritage. We try to think about how you maximize the communication value of all channels for your target audience, and, in this day and age, deliver an exciting and relevant product to a customer that generates brand excitement. To help us accomplish this, we try to hire people who have a curiosity about how things work with the customer and dig deep into what is the brand connection with that customer.”
-- Steven Dapper, founder and chairman
