JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

One spark 2014 will take over downtown Jacksonville in April.

Creators who have come up with ideas in art, innovation, music science and technology will showcase their innovations over five days at the world’s largest crowd-funding festival.

Organizers have just unveiled this year’s One Spark merchandise with T-shirts, sunglasses and many other items available for you to support this Jacksonville festival.

“Chad went a little off brand with some of it to make it a little more unique this year, kind of a more modern flare and we also did some kid stuff that I think is really fun,” said One Spark Volunteer Service Manager, Meredith O’Malley-Johnson.

Chad Landenberger is the One Spark 2014 marketing brand manager. Since July, he’s been sketching and designing this year’s merchandise.

“Sometimes the inspiration just comes to me and I just start with a sketch and then clean it up on the computer, some of the other stuff is a little more involved. I involve the team get their feedback so each piece it kind of varies a little bit,” said Landenberger.

T-shirts for adults and kids, wristbands and sunglasses in a variety of bright colors are all available to purchase.

“The sunglasses have been really popular actually, someone bought a pair off my head off the street the other day so they’ve been really selling like hot cakes,” said Landenberger.

Profits from all sales will go back to One Spark to help organizers continue to grow the event. It’s a project Landenberger is very passionate about and hopes you’ll like his designs and decide to buy something to help support the festival.

“I’m the type of person I think you need to love where you live and I like Jacksonville. I’ve been here 10 years I think it’s a great city that has a lot of potential so to be involved in One Spark and, in my opinion, make the city bigger and better and provide some energy for the city and creativity, I’m just really excited to be a part of that,” said Landenberger.

The one spark shop will be inside the main library off Laura Street and will be open during the festival. If you don’t want to wait until then, and really want some One Spark swag, you can purchase the gear online now at http://one-spark.myshopify.com/
