On Saturday, I participated in a panel called “What’s Up With Urban Fashion & Streetwear?” at SXSW’s StyleX event along with Marcus Troy, Matt Halfhill, & KJ Kearney. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours we had to chop it up and answer industry questions from the audience. We discussed how crucial it is to have a real story for your brand or product. Without that, you’re just another brand creating visual noise.

What up We Are the Process / EC Design Co. family, the name is Keenan Kellett and I’m here to learn. About what you ask? Well, about your city and what it has to offer to the streetwear game as a whole. Larry Luk and Georgios Saliaris were kind enough to hook me up with the spring internship here in their new studio at Good Work. I’ll be here Monday to Friday till around 5:00 if anyone ever wants to stop by and check anything out. I really love what We Are The Process is doing with their clothing by keeping it real and not losing their Southern roots.
I’m really stoked about staying in The A for awhile. This isn’t the first time I’ve visited Atlanta but it is the first time I’ll be “living” here. I’m coming here from Charleston, SC, where I serve hangry (hungry/angry) overweight tourist BBQ. I’ve been into We Are the Process for about a year now since I heard about it from some friends at Permanent Vacation. I’m looking forward to helping these guys #GrowTheBrand.
While I’m here I’m trying to dine on some of the delicious grub that Atlanta has to offer, which I know hardly anything about, but I’m sure exists. I want to also see some cool art galleries and possibly check out some of the dope music venues. I’m sure there are also some pretty good looking ladies but sadly for them I am very unavailable… Either way I know this is going to be a great experience all around.

We Are the Process (WATP) and the design shop behind the brand known as EC Design Co. (EC/DC) are looking for a Spring intern to join their staff from now until the end of March. The Spring intern will be expected to learn about the WATP brand, write about sports, design, and clothing from the perspective of WATP & EC/DC, check-in on social networking handles, be sociable with clients, and last but not least, handle design tasks.
But the biggest perk of the position will be an all expenses paid trip to Austin, TX in mid-March for South by Southwest’s Style X event where We Are the Process brand will be showcasing their latest collection.
You will be expected to be in the greater Atlanta area for 90% of this internship. Other supplies you’ll need are:
-A Laptop computer with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
-A Smart phone
It’s a plus if you have:
-Familiarity with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop

Thank you Steve Jobs for your vision. Thanks for creating the tools by which I make a living. I’m not saying that I couldn’t be a graphic designer without Apple, but many of your creations are the tools of my trade. These tools are luxuries which have allowed me to efficiently execute my concepts, which gives me time to spend with my friends and family; to live life. These tools have knocked down countless barriers for all creatives in my industry. For that, I couldn’t be more appreciative. I’m not about to go back to setting lead type by hand… Rest in Peace knowing you truly changed the world.

As some of you already know, I’ve been teaching design at Portfolio Center for over a year now. In addition to being part of EC Design Co. and We Are the Process, sometimes it’s my other-other job that inspires me. It’s refreshing to be around eager designers and I found that I love helping students see their visions become a reality.
I always enjoy looking at the signatures on the Portfolio Center faculty timecards. In an industry where lettering and control of hand are scrutinized intensely, it’s almost as if you can predict a personality based on the way these creatives write their own names!
