"I interned with the Wendy's marketing team during college and, during my experience there, gained an appreciation for the company's brand heritage," said Ryan Vesler, creative director at HOMAGE.
may seem on the surface, the catchphrase has really come to embody things that are quite important to firms like Wendy's and HOMAGE: quality, integrity, and value, Vesler said.
"After the campaign ends, we hope to continue offering the 'Where's the Beef?' T-shirt for as a long as consumers seek it out," Vesler said.

"I'm constantly intrigued by learning new things and finding out about the engaging moments and quirky personalities behind the stories all fans know," says Homage founder Ryan Vesler. "The surface-level stuff is team logos or slogans. We want to be less obvious than that. We want to differentiate this company and our brand."
Vesler started Homage in 2007 after graduating from Ohio University, setting up shop in his parents' basement. At first the company focused on reselling vintage apparel acquired at secondhand stores, but Vesler soon expanded into original designs, striking licensing deals with universities, including his alma mater and nearby Kent State and Dayton.
"There were no products telling [those athletes'] stories in a fun way," Vesler says.
"When Ohio State fans who don't live in Columbus anymore come to town, they can't wait to visit our shop," Vesler says.
Guest speaker Ryan Vesler, ..., 9 June 2014 [cached]
Guest speaker Ryan Vesler, young founder of the successful apparel enterprise, Homage, described the origins and challenges of his business. "It's an insane amount of work. An exercise in learning to trust your own judgment," he told the crowd. "My Spanish degree did not prepare me for dealing with the world of limited liability corporations, accounts payable and digital strategies."
Dressed down for the occasion and sporting one of his company's t-shirts, dedicated to local mainstay, Rubino's Pizza, Mr. Vesler explained that his wares are a "reflection of who we are and what we believe" and that his business was borne out of a "love of stories."
He encouraged the graduates to listen to their own thoughts and think about their own stories. "You may not know it now, but ... your story is inside of you and it will reveal itself. You are capable of crafting your own extraordinary story," he said.
He concluded by quoting advice to the grads from hometown heroine, Jerrie Mock, who, as the first woman to fly solo around the world inspired one of Homage's recent designs. "If you have a dream, don't let anyone talk you out of it," she said.
The senior class presented Mr. Vesler, a Columbus Academy graduate, with an honorary Bexley High School diploma. Read the full text of Mr. Vesler's remarks here.
