Thanks for visiting DirtySnouts.com.
My name is Stacey, and I am an animal loving graphic designer.
As a lifelong fan of 4-legged creatures, I have been known to go out of my way to interact with dogs, cows, pigs and goats when given the slightest opportunity to do so (visualize eye rolls from my family here).
As an art director and visual communicator, I use imagery to tell stories and convey information.
Last year, I brought these two passions together, after watching a video my husband sent me about a pig who paints.
Pigcasso, rescued as a piglet from a slaughterhouse, was given an opportunity to thrive and enjoy the life she deserved. She and her savior, Joanne from Farm Sanctuary SA, inspired me to learn more about factory farming. I was appalled by my discoveries and the more I read, the more upset I became. T-shirts I had designed years ago, but never produced, immediately came to mind and the timing felt right to bring them to light.
Dirty Snouts™ was born from my desire to raise awareness about issues that I believe are still unknown to many people – people who would not want to enable the atrocities of animal agriculture if they knew what was involved in the production of not just meat, but also eggs and dairy.
My work is intended to arouse curiosity, start dialogue and encourage action. If every person who notices one of my designs or MORAL COMPASSion for Animals logos is moved to consume fewer animal products – or at least gather more info about what goes on in the animal ag industry – then progress is being made.
I have many creations in the works and will be making them available in the future, so please check back and see what’s new. Or follow me on social media.
All Dirty Snouts™ works are my original designs and are custom printed by hand in Wisconsin, using eco-friendly methods. Print runs are done in small batches to keep costs down and to enable me to donate to help animals in need. As Dirty Snouts™ grows, I hope to add more organic and recycled options and print more frequently.
Ten percent of all direct sales are donated to farm animal sanctuaries, which are wonderful places that care for innocent beings who have suffered immensely. I encourage you to visit one if you never have!
Thanks again for your interest,
