RetroDuck Secret: If you’ve gotten a mock-up in the last two years that required a name and number on the back (for say a team sport), you have likely seen the combo above. That is the work of our main graphic designer, Dustin J. Grimes. The 14 is apparently his “lucky number.” Zookaru is an old Fantasy Role-Playing/Internet handle. “Zook” he described when asked today as “Gnomish,” and, as he said, he has “know idea where the Hell the ‘aru’ came from.”
He also admitted past Internet handles included “Amy the Skank” and “Barbados Joe,” at least the latter of which we’d personally like to see written on some customer mock-ups.
