Senior and marketing management major, Destiny Minor, is not only the face behind the shirts but also the Marketing Executive for the custom apparel business “Trending Prints.”

According to the company website, “Trending Prints” is where people can “find today’s stylish trends on t-shirts and accessories.”

Minor said she is excited and proud about how the business has been successful and is growing,

The idea for the “Straight Outta MoState” t-shirts was brought to Minor by her sorority sister and father after seeing the film “Straight Outta Compton” that was released this past August.

“Its been raging around Missouri State, the world, and a trending topic,” explained Minor.

Trending Prints was founded in St. Louis, Mo by Minor’s father, David Minor, Sr., in 2012. He said he founded this business to introduce his children into the marketing world and to enable them to have a voice and opinion in today’s society.

“One product that I’m trying to push on campus is the “Black Lives Matter” shirts. I feel like it’s a social issue that can be seen, that can be advertised, and shown through these shirts.”
