“DeKryptic is proud to announce our very first licensing partnership with Popeye, one of the world’s most iconic cartoon characters,” says Christopher Fermoselle, co-owner and creative director, DeKryptic. “As this is his 90th anniversary year, the timing could not be better to introduce Popeye’s fans to an entirely new brand experience, something that’s never been seen before–augmented reality apparel and accessories!”
