Race Car! That’s Why.

August 23rd, 2011 by Jorge

l1020874.jpg

People always assume, that all we do is work on the brand We Are the Process. Not the case at all! Georgios & Larry work as graphic designers full time under the moniker, EC Design Co., and I help out where I can. I spend my days working as a Marine here in New Orleans and in my off-time, I like to go fast. When I am not on my bike tearing down the streets of New Orleans, I am behind the wheel of a race car making laps around the track. Last week, Team Breast Friends and I, competed in the 24 Hours of LeMons’, Cain’t Get Bayou, at No Problem Raceway in New Orleans. If you don’t know about the 24hrs of LeMons Series, in a nut shell, it’s endurance racing for $500 cars. Now let me stop you right there. Don’t let the price tag fool ya’. Our 1991 Honda Civic VTEC is set-up like a proper race car should be, and after 8 races, it keeps getting faster. Just imagine Mad Max meets Nascar for 24 straight hours… Hairy, scary, and so fun. One day (real soon) We Are the Process is going to have it’s own car and team. What we should name our team? Leave us an answer after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s the trailer for the next installment of Marvel’s Ghostrider series, Ghostrider: Spirit of Vengeance. Did you guys watch the 1st movie? Was it awesome enough to warrant making a second film? Let me rephrase that question: Was it profitable enough for to warrant making a second film? I guess the answer is yes. ::MJ shrug::

Georgia’s New License Plate

August 22nd, 2011 by Larry

new_ga_license_plate_unveiled.jpg

You guys, THIS is the new Georgia License plate. WTF?!? I kinda want to throw up. No I definitely want to throw up. Apparently there was a “design contest” for residents to submit their designs to get narrowed down to semi-finalists by “art instructors”. You know what that really means? It means the state of GA decided that they would save money by NOT properly hiring designers. Instead they crowd-sourced themselves into this amazing piece of compromise. Yuck…

There’s so much grossness going on here. Visual noise between the “Peach State” type and the tree branches, the off-center “GEORGIA”, makes it seem like an after thought (and unbalanced), and finally the disregard for alignment between the plate numbers and the word “GEORGIA”. Yuck, yuck, yuck… If I had known about this “contest” I would’ve submitted a handful of designs myself. I also would’ve made all of my design students submit looks as well. We have a responsibility to get graphic noisemakers out of the public eye. You wanna know why some people don’t take The South seriously? It’s because too many people in The South don’t follow the process properly. C’mon people… there are amazing designers in Georgia. Why? Why? Why weren’t they tapped to give us a better solution?

Read this marketing jargon: “Georgia’s new general issue license plate will incorporate a “digital” (flat) design, meaning it won’t have raised numbers and letters. This new production process will result in a cost savings to the state and allow customers the option of having their license plate delivered to them instead of having to go to a county tag office. The “flat” plate technology will afford easier identification by Georgia law enforcement.” Translation: The flat plate will save Georgia money, but they’ll still charge you the same amount as always. Also, when was a flat plate considered a technological advancement? It’s not! It’ll just allow the police’s speed guns to function better… meaning more tickets for you! We ain’t stupid… stop feeding us the bs!

Rogue Wave Surf Shop

August 18th, 2011 by Larry

watp_rwss_03.JPG

We recently met Rhett Boyd, owner of Rogue Wave Surf Shop (RWSS), during our Christmas in July event in Charleston. He invited us to visit his shop the following day and we were definitely curious as to the type of surf shop he owned. You see, he was probably the most dapper fellow at the event, but all I could picture in my head was a typical surf shop with neon colored boards, trunks, and Sex Wax. My preconceived notions were pleasantly mistaken the following day, as I soon realized that RWSS is 50% a collection of relics (that are for sale of course), 25% surf product, and 25% lifestyle clothing. It’s as if Ernest Hemingway was a surfer and opened his own store.

When in Charleston, visit RWSS:
69 Spring Street
Charleston, SC 29403

Snow on tha Bluff – Frank Got Stabbed

August 18th, 2011 by Larry

Check out this behind-the-scenes clip from the yet-to-be-released film, Snow on tha Bluff. What intrigues me the most about this film is the blurred line between what was staged for the film, and what parts were real. Sounds like Frank really got stabbed in the making of this film! I’m so confused! Stay tuned for info regarding the film’s release date.

#WATPFFL

August 18th, 2011 by Larry

watp_pro_combat_1_655.jpg

We Are the Process Fantasy Football League (#WATPFFL) is back, and YES I totally nerded-out and designed some We Are the Process football uniforms on some Nike Pro Combat templates. On a semi-related tangent: Only 1 more season until Nike gets to start making officially licensed gear for the NFL! It’s funny to see college teams wearing Pro Combat equipment that is better than that of the pros.

Unfortunately, the We Are the Process Fantasy Football League is already full. We have lots of returning team managers, and our 3 newest members spoke up last year. It’s never too late to start begging to be considered for next season. You can start by emailing us at info@wearetheprocess.com and submitting your name, email address, and “WATPFFL: Tier 2″ in the subject line to join-up in our Tier 2 league for this season. The best player(s) will get the invite to the big show next year. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Check out the other uniforms I geeked-out on after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

New Exposure Unit for Mixed Messages Class

August 15th, 2011 by Georgios

exposureunit.jpg

This is my 2nd quarter teaching my Mixed Messages class at Portfolio Center and I just completed building an exposure unit for my class. I gutted out a light table and replaced the fluorescent fixture with these 4 new ones that holds 8 black-light fluorescents. Rewiring the table and lights to work together was the hard part but as you can see it lights up fine. With this setup, we will have a burn time of 1:00-2:00 minutes. I can’t exactly add electrician to my resume but now I can finally build a new exposure unit for EC Design studio.

Closed for Business

August 15th, 2011 by Jorge

closed_for_business_charleston.jpg

On a recent trip to Charleston, SC, the boys and I sat down to an amazing brunch with some of our local friends. With so many options for this Sunday tradition, we settled on one we heard had, “(the) best beer selection on tap.” The spot was called Closed for Business (CFB). The name didn’t make sense to me, but the pimento and cheese grits did. CFB offered a great atmosphere, great location, and some killer southern-styled fare (the oyster omelette is a must try, kids); you cant go wrong with this place for bro-unch!
