December 19th, 2008 by Ross

So this week I went up to Ruin with Larry to check out the selection of SB’s and while I was there I came across something pretty awesome. It was the Lakai Fully Flared shirts that were shot by Atiba Jefferson. Atiba is one of the most famous skateboard photographers out there and has been killin’ it for a while now. He has branched out into basketball and football over the past couple of years but always keeps the best stuff of his skateboarding pictures. Either way here are a few of my favorite images of his. I hope everyone out there has a great Christmas next week and I will have something pretty awesome for you coming up next week!

Making of: El Bar Tee

December 17th, 2008 by Larry

Here’s a preview of the new El Bar tee that is one of the many reasons you should pre-pay for their New Years Eve party. $20 gets you so many benefits including one of these shirts. Nothing is more ATL than this tee… except for being a Celtic hater. (Don’t pretend like you rep the A and let me see you at Philips Arena cheering for Boston. That’s negative points in my book, you poser!)

Photo Friday: William Eggleston

December 12th, 2008 by Ross

eggleston_2_girls_on_couch.jpg

Hello everyone and welcome once again to another installment of Photo Fridayz! I want to first start out by giving a little bit of notice to everyone out there about the postcard show that is coming up this Saturday night at Mint Gallery here in Atlanta. The show is open to the public and it is recommended that everyone participate! You can present up to 4 pieces up to 4×6 in size. It should be a fun time with good people so everyone should check it out.

This week I wanted to share with you someone who I find a lot of inspiration from. William Eggleston is a photographer from Memphis and is credited with making color photography a legitimate form of art. He was the first person to have a solo color photography show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and since then has continued to create images up until this day. His images are beautiful in terms of color and composition but are also comprised of the most mundane subject matter. I could go on and on about how amazing I think he is as a photographer and it still really wouldn’t do much justice. If you like what you see in this post I would strongly recommend going out and renting William Eggleston in the Real World. Its one of the better documentaries I have seen in regards to photographers. It gives a very indept and personal look at Eggleston and his process and the steps he has taken over the years to get where he is. Very impressive and well worth the watch.

Zoom Kobe IV Webcast/Photos

December 11th, 2008 by Larry


Zoom Kobe IV sketches

I just participated in a webcast where Kobe Bryant revealed the new Zoom Kobe IV that claims to be the worlds lightest basketball sneaker weighing in at 11.6 ounces. Surprisingly, it’s a low top sneaker. The sneaker boasts technical details such as Flywire technology in the upper (which was made famous by the Hyperdunk), LunarLite foam in the forefoot, and a Zoom Air unit in the heel.

The sneaker comes out in China on January 1st, 2009 and hits US shelves on the 1st of Febraury. Kobe’s first game in the Zoom Kobe IVs is December 19th against the Miami Heat.

Check out screenshots from the webcast and photos of the sneaker after the jump.

Jamie Hopper Photography Website Launch

December 10th, 2008 by Larry

We just finished the final tweaks on jamiehopper.com. As I mentioned last week, we felt that the great photography should be allowed to speak for itself. Our challenge was to find a way to amplify Jamie’s work while allowing the user experience to be both simple and intuitive.

It’s great that she was so willing to let us do what we do best: taking a design risk knowing we would land our feet. Thank you Jamie for being an amazing client and for bringing us pizza the other day. Everyone loves your site!
