Each year leading into the holidays, Alabama Outdoors offers a limited edition holiday shirt featuring a holiday-themed design. This year Alabama Outdoors partnered with AAF of Birmingham to find local talent through a design contest. We would like to congratulate Savannah Kurtz from Ashville, Alabama as the winner and creator of our official Alabama Outdoors Holiday T-Shirt design. Her design features a cozy A-frame cabin nestled in the pines, reminiscent of many winter scenes here in Alabama. We sat down with Savannah and asked her some questions!

Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A: I just got home after exploring the west and living out of my van, Clifford, for the past 6 months! Lots o’ desert climbing and mountain summiting and thanking God for creating such a beautiful world to explore.
Q: How did you hear about our t-shirt contest?
A: I saw a post about this contest while I was using wifi at Jackson Lake Lodge. I’m glad I saw it when I did because it was the last day to enter!
Q: Were you familiar with Alabama Outdoors before? If so, tell us a little about that.
A: Yes, long-time fan of AO! Support your local gear outfitters!
Q: Where do you live? Have you always lived in Alabama?
A: Home is in the woods of Ashville, Alabama! My family and I lived in Pennsylvania when I was a wee child before moving here. I lived in a van this summer, which felt like living everywhere and nowhere all at once!
Q: Can you tell us a little about your design and what inspired you to create it?
A: I have a Pinterest board dedicated to tiny cabins and A-frames. I’ll build my own in the woods someday and you can come and stay!
Q: How long have you been an artist or designer?
A: I’ve been a professional designer for 2 years, but I’ve loved creating in many ways for as long as I can remember.
A: Rock climbing! Climbing has unlocked places in the US that I wouldn’t have thought to visit otherwise, like the top of the Grand Teton in Wyoming or the middle of nowhere Joe’s Valley in Utah. Want to get into it? Try climbing at the local gym @bhamboulders!
Q: Where can people find your work?
A: Online at SavannahKurtz.mountainridgemedia.net
