Curren$y – Weekend at Burnie’s

June 30th, 2011 by Staff

currency_weekend_at_burnies_655_new.jpg

New Orleans rapper Curren$y has been knocking out records non-stop since his solo start in 2004; in the past year alone he’s released four albums on his own, as well as numerous guest appearances on other projects and a couple of mixtapes. You’d think with that much material in such a short time, Curren$y would skimp on quality, but his records have been solid; receiving flattering reviews, and even loving high scores from Pitchfork Media. Although his latest effort, Weekend at Burnie’s, is branded with some painfully cheesy cover art, complete with the same type treatment as the late 80′s movies from which it takes it’s name (Weekend at Bernie’s) and rainbow smoke, the actual content of the album is pretty impressive. Curren$y hardly pauses to take a breath for the whole ride, the tracks are incredibly dense and the lyrics are quality too, with tons of allusions, mentioning everything from Bape to J. Crew, and even a handful of Twitter references (the single even has a hashtag in the title). The soft beats and melodies, mixed and produced by Monsta Beatz do a good job of not getting in the way of Curren$y’s lyrics; and the combination make for a solid rap album. Check out the first single from the record, #JetsGo.

Basketballfeld: The Craziest Court Ever

June 29th, 2011 by Larry

basketballfeld-2.jpeg

German design collective, inges idee, have created this wild basketball court at the Occupational School Center in Munich. From the looks of the photos, it’d be impossible to hold an actual 5-on-5 style game on this court, but perhaps an interesting game of H-O-R-S-E could ensue?

What do you guys think about this? Is this considered smart art? Or is it a waste of space and resources?

More photos and inges idee‘s explanation of the court’s purpose after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Workspaces: Megan Huntz

June 29th, 2011 by Larry

workspace_megan_huntz_header.jpg

Today I spent the afternoon with an old friend, Megan Huntz, of Megan Huntz Dresses. Over the past few years she has spent time producing her dresses in Italy and Barcelona, but has recently moved her business back to the USA. She has converted her Atlanta, GA home into a dress-making studio that I’ve decided to document here.

Her workspace is a true testament to her work ethic. She takes her craft seriously and she’s going to make moves. It’s great to have Megan back in ATL and I’m excited for the imminent success of her brand! Attention slackers: You can keep making excuses about not having resources handed to you, or you can make magic. Your call.

The Basics: Sketching

June 29th, 2011 by Larry

dope_boy_anthems_sketch_655.jpg

Georgios and I constantly harp on the importance of sketching. It’s an essential step in the creative process, yet we encounter situations on a daily basis where people decide to skip the sketching step and jump right into the computer. What results from that horrible decision is usually garbage. I have no qualms about telling you to your face that you wasted everyone’s time by trying to save your own time by NOT SKETCHING IN THE FIRST PLACE. Ya dig?

Lots of “designers” just hack together novelty fonts and other crappy low-resolution images they find on Google for flyers and mixtapes. I can’t name many people I know that actually take the time to draw custom typefaces, illustrate, and take their own photos for their projects. The sad part is, I know even less people that recognize the power of hand done type!

For our recent work on Speakerfoxxx‘s Dope Boy Anthems mixtape, I was tasked with coming up with a unique script to be knocked out of a photo of a dub cruiser. As you can see, I took pencil to paper first!

I’ve put together some before and after juxtapositions of some recent work after the jump. Fun stuff! Read the rest of this entry »

LunarGlide 3+ on Nike iD

June 29th, 2011 by Larry

nike_id_lunarglide3_02.jpg

Not only is the July release of the LunarGlide 3+ one of the most anticipated drops of the year for performance-geeks and sneakerheads, but it has also just been made available on NikeiD. The good people at Swoosh have been giving the gift of customization on some great silhouettes this year! As if the LunarGlide 3+ iD isn’t enough, my favorite basketball shoe of the past year, the Zoom Hyperfuse Low, is also going to be iD-able starting the 6th of July. I need a third job so I can afford all these damn kicks!

Stranger Day – Bar Stool Bounce [Press Kit]

June 28th, 2011 by Larry

stranger_day_barstool_bounce_presskit.JPG

Today we received Stranger Day‘s beautifully-crafted press kit in the mail. As if hard copies of his Bar Stool Bounce EP weren’t cool enough, we received an assortment of stickers (not pictured), and a huge mason jar full of Stranger Day branded MOONSHINE! I took a swig straight out of the jar and I breathed hot lava for the next hour! We’re going to drop some peaches in this jar and keep it in our studio. We’ll belligerently force you to do shots of Stranger Day “Peach State” Moonshine with us if you visit! Fair warning!

Introducing: Eden Weingart

June 28th, 2011 by Larry

eden_weingart_watp_ecdesignco.jpg

We’d like to introduce our intern for the summer, Eden Weingart. Unlike most of our recent applicants, she was able to successfully navigate our extensive internship application. Although some of her sports-related answers weren’t exactly what we were looking for (she’s a Yankee fan), her talents outweighed our fanatical bias.

She studies Communication Design at Carnegie Mellon University, is a recent recipient of the Design Merit Award on campus, and is the PR director of the on-campus radio station WRCT. She’ll be our resident indie-rocker for the summer, learning about web design, and helping us devise a smarter inventory system for our back stock of We Are the Process items. Also, you may have noticed some of our recent music reviews were written by her. Wish her well, and leave her a nice comment!

Givers – Up Up Up [Video]

June 28th, 2011 by Staff

givers_upupup_video_still.jpg

About a month ago we featured Givers’ song Up Up Up from their first full length album In Light. Since then, the album’s been released, the group played their single on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and now the Louisiana band has released their first music video for Up Up Up. The video starts with what looks like tilt shift footage of New York City, making people, cars and taxis look like toys in a miniature city. It then cuts to the group placed on top of an illustrated forest along with all their instruments, bopping and singing along. The video continues, cutting back and forth from these two segments for almost the whole song, with the band members eventually appearing on the New York streets. The two parts of the music video aren’t really cohesive, but all in all it’s a interesting video of the band having a good time and it goes well with the catchy, happy-go-lucky song. Check it out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
