We know that their official Mint 400 sunglasses will be a hit every year.” Heat Wave Visual® was founded in 2014 by Justin Hertel and Doug Karlson, who sought to bring something more to the table in the eyewear market. The brand sought to create an original, affordable and customizable sunglasses platform on a level never before offered. “Heatwave is driven by a passion for design and customization. Whether it’s wrenching on cars, bikes, websites, graphics, whipping up some art, snapping photos or even making videos, we’re creators at heart,” said Heat Wave Visual CEO, Justin Hertel. “The Mint 400 brand has been an outlet for that creativity and we have together produced some awesome products over the years. We can’t wait to get back to the event!”
