FREaKER USa
Company profile
Freaker USa Inc IS a north carolIna baSed company that IS on theForeFront oF keepIng bottleS cool and handS more comFort-able. Zach craIn and the Freaker team are pUrSUIng theIr amerI-can dream oF preventIng all moISt handShakeS wIth theIr patentpendIng prodUct the “Freaker.”
Freaker USA Inc. started with one man and two knitting needles. Now the company consists of a small group of young & inspired entrepreneursusing the ingenuity of their generation to create a unique and interactivebusiness model. The FreakerTeam is a crew of quirky creatives; designers,internet-gurus and lmmakers. In a time that presents little nancial op-portunity for the contemporary youth, the Freaker team is creating theirown job market through the social media they were bred on. They weavethe Freaker so artfully and seamlessly in and out of everything they do, thatit’s hard to see the lines between the product, the life and the prole of Freaker-culture.Rather than seek out angel investors or venture capitalists for their project,the company once again is turning to the social media they know so well:crowdfunding via Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a dynamic platform wherethe general public can nancially support creative projects through smalldonations. In order for this funding to succeed, each project launches a video in order to pitch the idea to potential backers which is ideally theentire online community.The video produced by the FreakerTeam is ri-diculous; it’s over the top stream of consciousmadness- think the Pikey’s from ‘Snatch’ meetsthe dino-DNA video from Jurassic Park plusMartha Stewart and a twist of methamphet-amines- and afterward it leaves you completelyblindsided, like if you’re not with them you’rebeing left behind on the ride of your life.They aren’t selling a product, they’re giving youan invitation to their party; a starter kit for anew lifestyle. The Freaker isn’t a strike-at-the- wind attempt to get rich, it’s the backgroundmusic to a never-ending journey. Infusing lifeinto a drink sweater, the FreakerTeam of mad-cap facilitators want to make sure you know that you’re invited to join in the fun.
Manufactured in Troy, North Carolina, Freakers are nationally recognized as the one-size-fits-all knitcoozie that functionally makes your beverage feel special. Presented in myriad of prismatic designs; theFreaker is a strong, tight knit that keeps your liquids insulated in style!
 
 
There are countless examples of “I wish I’da thought of that!” inven-tions that have branded themselves on our anthropological landscape:the Slinky, neon lights, Febreeze, laser pointers, and most recently SillyBandz. Humans love the peripheral and even more than that we lovestyle, and Zachary Crain, inventor of the Freaker, knows this.Even if there was never such a thing as a Freaker, Zach Crain would getnoticed; he makes his own clothes (and his dogs clothes), and he can’tremember the last time he wasn’t smiling.He originally was trying to develop “beer-sweaters” that he was making from actual sweaters. He wanted to manufacture them without seams, sohe contacted a sock mill that had a circular knitting machine; the millsent a sample made with spandex, and the Freaker was born.The mill is located locally in Troy, North Carolina. Zach Crain has atendency to sleep on the factory oors so that he can stay overnight de-signing and lending a hand to the production process.Now, Zach Crain has fully bloomed into the Freak Master of the USA.He spends his days designing Freakers and building paper mache worldsfor Freakers-turned-marionettes. He works day and night for the greater
