I know there are a lot of ladies that have been telling us we don’t make enough stuff for women. Well now you have nothing to complain about because we decided to release the first tee of our new line, PROCESS, exclusively for the ladies. This tee was created in collaboration with everybody’s girl, Megan Huntz which will be available at the next Megan Huntz Dresses showcase at Changing Room in Barcelona on Saturday June 14th.
Changing Room is held for one day only at the chic and basic hotel located in the historic center of Barcelona. 29 designers take over a room each and open to the public for a shopping extravaganza of the coolest, most cutting edge young designers in Barcelona. If you’re not able to attend the event in Barcelona you’re in luck…we’ve kept some tees stateside that you can pick up in our online store.
This tee is the first in a 2 part series. Part 2 will be available with the rest of the PROCESS line in the Spring of 2009 at your favorite boutiques nationwide. Until then, you’ll have to hope you’re lucky enough to score a PROCESS tee prototype directly from us or be invited to our private lookbook photoshoot later next month. We don’t have all the details set in stone for the lookbook photoshoot/party, but we’re pretty close. If you want to come, let us know immediately by emailing email@example.com.
“Angelica” has been a mainstay of Epidemik Coalition from the very beginning so we figured there was no reason to leave her out when creating our new line, PROCESS. Tonight we got together with some of our favorite collaborators on the “Angelica” graphic for the line.
Ross Martin worked the photo magic, Marie Hanson did hairstyle concept & make-up, and our new friend Jessica Nash modeled. We’ve reinterpreted a lot of the Epidemik Coalition brand for the new line and the “Angelica” is the last on the list of things to complete.
Come out and show your support for your boys (& girl) at Pop Art at Halo on May 29th. We’re unveiling our Medusa Armada 3D installation that night. It’s nice that Halo Lounge realizes the impact of the creative community here in town and wants to help showcase our work. “Ultra Lounge” type places don’t usually host events for local artists but hopefully this will be the beginning of a trend here in ATL. I guess “design” is mainstream these days. Anyway, admission is free for everyone before 10PM.
Chris Hamer of Urbn Pop, Epidemik Coalition & Ted Ullrich, Ted Murphy of Spooky Toons, Jenny “Bunns” Young of Apprentice Diaries, Ashley Zeltzer of Cartoon Network, Andrew Bellury, Pierre Cerrato, Drew Dominey, Thom Foolery, Amanda Goodbread, Jennifer Henley, Damon Hooks, Stephanie Howard, Brett Thompson, Todd Redner, Dan Young & more.
For all you process lovers, here’s a production video of our laser-cut, acrylic jellyfish for our installation in Pop Art at Halo, taking place at Halo Lounge on May 29th. We’ve been working with Ted Ullrich who has been making the concept structurally sound.
Jessica reminds me a lot of how Georgios and I went about our careers at Portfolio Center. She takes on as much as she can to gain valuable experiences. This past week, she took on freelance gigs, participated in two workshops, heard two speakers, made a paper dress for the MA 08 Launch Party, did homework for school, and helped us keep our operation afloat. She’ll be with us all summer with our weekly scheduling & concepting our apparel lookbook. Knowing her, she’ll probably take on more than that. Welcome Jessica!
This past weekend, Belgium-based fashion illustrator, Jarno Kettunen, came by our studio to borrow spraypaint for his gig at the MA Design & Fashion Show and snagged my copy of this tee and proceeded to rock it all weekend. Jarno, you owe me one, so drop in on Black Top Skate Shop and pay it forward, bro.
We collaborated with Modern Atlanta‘s forefather/design connousieur/big picture man, Bernard McCoy, on this run of limited edition tees for MA08′s “Design is Human” event taking place tonight [5.9.08]. The above photo shows back collar graphic location and hand-numbered detailing.
We were asked to create a hanging art installation to be featured in an upcoming art exhibit at Halo Lounge in Atlanta. We don’t have all the event details yet, but we’ll post them as soon as we find out more.
Realizing that a clean & sexy version of the installation can only be achieved through experimentation, we decided it would be good to begin working in real space. Today we created a rough prototype of what will be called, Medusa Armada.
Thanks to Ted Ullrich for helping us create this 3D piece from concept to execution.
Georgia Tech I.D. grad student, Ted Ullrich, is a man on a mission to stay busy this summer. He’s doing double-duty with us in addition to an internship with our pals at Armchair Media. If you’re around our studio at The Center for Design Study this summer, you’ll probably run into him. He’ll be helping us with all kinds of “outside-the-box” projects, including a possible art installation later this month. More details to come. For now, check out Ted Ullrich’s Portfolio Site.
