CITY OF MARQUETTE PROJECT

Support your favorite local parks and landmarks, and look good doing it! ​

We teamed up with The City of Marquette and LoyalTees Clothing to raise money for the beautiful places we love so much. ‘These Goods Are Good for Marquette’ is a new merchandise program to benefit local parks and landmarks, launched by the City of Marquette and designed by That Girl Amber.

A portion of all sales from the Blackrocks, Ore Dock, Presque Isle, and McCarty’s Cove apparel is donated to the Marquette city parks program.

Ore Dock

Once the heart of Marquette’s economy, the old Ore Dock in downtown Marquette remains a symbol of hard work, and the foundation Marquette was built on.

Presque Isle

From surfing the angry waters of Superior to first kisses at Sunset Point. Presque Isle is enjoyed by everyone who visits or lives in Marquette, Michigan. 

Blackrocks

Test your courage or watch as others take the plunge! It’s a common Marquette tradition to jump off Blackrocks in the summer… or the winter.

McCarty's Cove

The Marquette Harbor Lighthouse overlooks Marquette’s most popular beach front area. Swimming, volleyball, kayaking, and even surfing. McCarty’s is always ready to play.

the clink to your drink!

Superior sloshing around in your hands; maybe in the form of coffee, or maybe in the form of beer. Or maybe you prefer yours clear. Either way, we can all agree on keeping Superior clean. Let’s use less disposable- and if you need a drink, grab your clink!

MIIR mugs and tumblers are in production as we speak!

Ooo, we can feel that Yooper envy now!

WE like our beer local

Beer is best when shared with friends,
Around a fire, remembering the has been,
Next to the lake, and back to the woods again, 
We all know, the best beer comes from Michigan.

WHO wants a 'play dirty' beer?

The name of the game? PLAY DIRTY! Chances are, if you like Marquette, you like playing dirty. Sweet, bitter dirt crumbling out of your mouth as you smile at the bottom of Benson’s Grade. Dusting grass off your perfectly grilled steak in the middle of a Red Pine forest. The cleansing power of a Play Dirty beer is a must for any backpack, saddle pack, or back pocket. Well, go ahead… WRITE YOUR LOCAL BREWMASTER!

THE BRAINCHILD of

Because Marquette is everything that embodies the Marquette area and the free soul it represents. Encouraging adventure and echoing beauty from one end to the other, Marquette has earned the right to be celebrated, so that’s what we’re doing. 

That Girl Amber has worked in Marketing & Design for over 20 years, and has been in love with Marquette for even longer. It was inevitable for the two passions to collide.
If you’re looking for graphic design and marketing with a kick, let’s grab a drink!

Marketing + advertising

Marketing without strategy is like a pasty without filling… pretty useless.
