About Vandalia Goods
Born and raised in West Virginia, founder Rob Russo creates many of the products to reflect his passion of all things Mountain State and the surrounding areas.
In addition, the company launched with its signature product, the Vandalia Sticker Club, delivering three custom-designed, faith-based stickers to its members each month. (Learn more about the club here.)
The Vandalia Community
Concepts for gifts and goods come from the collective community (that's you!) on Instagram where we encourage feedback and discuss future design ideas.
Community members also receive sneak peeks and other special offers like early-bird discounts when we release new products. Follow Vandalia Goods on Instagram now to join in on the fun.
About Rob Russo
Rob Russo is a visual marketing consultant and professional graphic designer working full-time at his local church.
He loves to help small business owners and churches stand out online and in their community by creating bold brands and engaging content that commands attention.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Rob has experience in print and web design, a passion for social media, and a (healthy) guacamole addiction. He has worked with small shops — coffee shops, local gyms, health & wellness coaches, and photographers — as well as bigger brands including WV Tourism.
Rob co-created the quirky lifestyle brand, Avocado Shirt Co., featuring tees, stickers, and other gear that stemmed from his love of guacamole and everything avocado. The company created a buzz online, garnered the attention of local media, and was rewarded a successful Kickstarter campaign. This success led to partnerships with industry giants Avocados From Mexico and Wholly Guacamole.
When he's not designing or studying the latest marketing trends, Rob likes to relax at home with his family (and a fresh cup of coffee) or attempt to play the banjo.
