Girl designer Aimée Shultz and boy designer Jeremy Miller, both New Orleans natives, combined ideas, money and last names. The result – Shultzilla. This talented duo yields sharp wit, keen design sense and the drive to be really, really awesome.

So just how did Shultzilla come to be, you wonder? Jeremy grew up in Metry and I grew up in Chalmette. We met in Baton Rouge while attending LSU and ten years later, Shultzilla was born. Both designers by trade (and just really awesome people all around), we both wanted to express ourselves in a way that we couldn’t really do at our normal day jobs. We wanted to find a hobby that would allow us to be edgy as well as express our sense of humor because believe it or not, we love to laugh and we love making others laugh as well.

We recently launched the first few items of our new children’s line, which includes onesies, children’s tees, and bibs. Our new baby items along with our other products can be found at

And We Have a Winner!
