t’s not the kind of response 13-year-old Aidan Hanson was expecting. It’s been six weeks since he set up his online merchandise business selling hoodies, T-shirts, sweaters, hats and iPhone cases with a partially eaten orange Creamsicle as its logo, but he’s already sold out once. Hanson worked with an online design company, making alterations to the logo he initially sketched until it suited the look he was striving for. He said he now owns the rights to the logo, which uses a ‘K’ for ‘Kreamsicle.’ His online store is hosted by Ottawa-based e-commerce company, Shopify, which creates platforms for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems. “It gives you all different options on what you can use so I picked out all the things I’d like to put my logo on, and made a mock-up of it and put it on the website,” Hanson said in the kitchen of his home on Hillside Road.
