Target Files 20 Trademark Applications For Possible New House Brand

On October 16th, Target Brands, Inc. filed twenty different trademark applications for the phrase MADE BY DESIGN. Target filed each application in a separate class of goods, which accounts for the large number of applications.
Some of the products filed in the twenty different classes include fresh fruit, nuts, and vegetables, jewelry, stationary, baked goods, clothing, bed, kitchen, and bath linens, furniture, carrying bags, kitchen utensils, and cosmetics.  

Is this a new house brand by Target? Maybe. Target filed all of the applications on an intent-to-use basis, which means the company is not yet using the trademark in commerce but has a bona fide intention to do so in the near future. While this might signal Target is going to release a line of products under this trademark, it also might only signal that it is one of the brand names the company is considering. Regardless, a new house brand by Target may be hitting stores soon.
