We Are the Process for 2011 PBR Art & Design Shirt-Off

September 15th, 2011 by Larry

watp_pbr_art_contest_entries.jpg

PBR asked us to submit entries for their 2011 PBR Art & Design Shirt-Off contest and we’re asking you to vote! CrowdTogether, the website that’s hosting the contest currently has our entries, but the images are very small and don’t do our graphics justice, so we’ve decided to post them here in full detail.

The submission deadline keeps getting mysteriously pushed back… So much for hitting a deadline! I had my entry ready weeks ago and was waiting until the last minute so as to NOT show my cards. But you can now see what I did and 1-up me if you like. Sigh… I guess it’s really not that serious.

The good news is: if you’d like to submit your own entry, you still have time.

What I’m really asking you to do is to head over and SIGN UP and VOTE for either of the following:
-We Are the Process: Blue Ribbon Pin-Up
-PBR Derby Winner

Check out large versions of our submissions after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Shout Out: Decatur Dan

September 12th, 2011 by Larry

decatur_dan_on_set.jpg

I’ve known Decatur Dan (Dan Hall) for over 5 years and we’ve run in similar crowds for that same amount of time. While I worked my way through the ranks of Portfolio Center, I saw Dan start college, graduate, and start his budding career directing videos and concepting treatments for others. While I learned about color theory and typography, Dan honed his skills in montage and transitions. I’d just like to give a shout out to the dude for supporting our brand, We Are the Process, since day one. As you can see in the above photo, he’s on set with DJ Drama, repping for WATP like any good friend would. Thank you sir. You’ve got our back and we’ll always have yours.

Read up on Dan’s happenings on his blog and follow him on Twitter.

The Barrelhouse

September 9th, 2011 by Larry

Mu Shu Duck

The Barrelhouse is midtown Atlanta’s newest gastropub, featuring one of Atlanta’s largest selections of craft beers. It’s only been open for less than a month now, and I’ve had the pleasure of eating there for lunch and dinner on several occasions already. Everything on The Barrelhouse’s menu is good, and the nightly rotating chef specials are spectacular.

I’ve been known to go into a restaurant and order whatever the chef enjoys making. Just like with my industry, if a designer or chef is given liberties, they’re going to enjoy creating. That usually leads to an amazing result. You can tell that they enjoy creating their dishes at The Barrelhouse. Everything is made from scratch: the mustard, the pickles, the POT ROAST, etc. I highly recommend the Mu Shu Duck which is only available during dinner hours. The Fried Chicken special I had the other night was so good, I muttered multiple expletives while eating!

The Barrelhouse is located on the Georgia Tech campus at 5th & West Peachtree, in the heart of Technology Square. I highly recommend checking the place out before and after college football on Saturdays, or during the week for dinner & after dinner drinks. They’re open late!

Business hours:
Monday – Thursday: 11am – 1:30am
Friday & Saturday: 11am – 3am
Sunday: 5pm – Midnight

Follow the Barrelhouse on Twitter or Like them on Facebook for news and specials.

The 2011 NIKE MAG – It’s About Time

September 8th, 2011 by Larry

bftf-reveal_2.jpg

The NIKE MAG is no longer the “greatest shoe never made.” The mythical shoe that originally captured the imagination of audiences in Back to the Future II is being released – and they’re here to help create a future without Parkinson’s disease.

1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction starts September 8, 11:30PM EST, and will end September 18. Thanks to a previous 50 million dollar match given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, all donations will be matched, effectively doubling the contributions from the auction.

The original NIKE MAG was worn by the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, in the year 2015. It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty’s foot. The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap. The 2011 NIKE MAG illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.

Criminal Records Closing

September 7th, 2011 by Larry

criminal_records_closing.jpg

Atlanta’s favorite record store has announced that it will be shutting its doors as early as November of this year. The company owes a significant amount of money to the IRS and the plan is to liquidate everything in the store. If you want to read more into the details of the story, click over to this Paste article.

In the Paste article, store owner Eric Levin states, “Maybe the community will rally. I hope that people want to be a part of a rescue attempt”. Do you know what that means to me? That means there is hope to keep these doors open! Although the odds are against us, we need to do something to save Criminal Records! For starters, you should:
1) “Like” the Save Criminal Records Facebook Page.
2) Go to Criminal Records asap and pick up an album or two. Yes I’m talking to you! Get your lazy ass up and pay for hard copies of the albums you’ve pirated.

Stay in the loop on upcoming events Save Criminal Records Facebook Page, and we’ll do our best to relay any pertinent information to you as well.

I’ve spent so many hours discovering new music in the old & new Criminal Records locations and I have amazing memories of in-store performances & appearances. It’d be a damn shame for this Atlanta institution to disappear. Additionally, thanks to Eric Levin for the opportunity to do design work for Criminal Records over the years. It’s been an honor.
