Weschester residents Jose Francisco and Daniel Fernandez launched ISpeakMiami to capture all the Cubanisms that they hear on an everyday basis. Phrases like Ya Tu Sabes, Que Bolá Acere?, Mira Pa’ Ya, and Voy Pa’ Ya have all morphed into T-shirts. Yet, instead of emblazoning shirts with the catchy sayings, the duo who are both 24-years-old decided to go digital by creating a text message vocabulary.

“The designs are geared towards anyone who is looking to represent Miami and those who are immersed in its' Hispanic culture,” said Francisco. Tees start at $16 and can be purchased at Viernes Cultural in Little Havana and at www.ISpeakMiami.com
