Too Soon?

June 5th, 2012 by Jorge

Last week we tweeted about the incident in Miami where a homeless man had his faced eaten off buy a bath-salt-crazed-naked man. The story sparked rumors that zombies were quite real and walking around Miami. Perhaps that’s what prompted the CDC, in Atlanta, to formally announce this weekend that there is no virus that is turning people into zombies. This news, however, did not make it out to those caught in the following video. Please don’t try this at home; especially not in Georgia. We all got guns, y’all!

Nike Sportswear City Destroyer Pack

December 8th, 2011 by Larry

Since its introduction, the Nike Destroyer jacket has quickly become a coveted symbol of street smarts, discerning style and gritty individualism. Now, the connection between the Destroyer and classic Americana is even more definitive.

This holiday season, Nike Sportswear introduces five exclusive limited edition Destroyer jackets paying homage to the cities of Detroit, New Orleans, Miami, Philadelphia and Oakland. Along with city-specific imagery and community interaction, the City Destroyers celebrate the football stars that embody the spirit of those archetypical metropolises and their football tradition. The number 51, which is found on many of the different metropolitan-themed jackets, pays homage to the uniform worn by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman when he played collegiate football.

There will only be 8 jackets available per city. Beginning today, both the Nike Sportswear stores in New York (21 Mercer) and Los Angeles (Montalbán) will have 8 of each jacket available.

See them all after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

SnortThis.com – WMC MIAMI 2010 pt.1 Interviews

April 22nd, 2010 by Larry

The Dirty Doctor Dax and Rob Wonder recently went to Miami for Winter Music Conference, and it looks like they held it down with video camera in hand the entire time. I definitely can’t hang with these dudes. They have waaaay too much fun, but it’s awesome to see them doing big things. Great job editing that footage too!

Emily Dryden recently took this portrait of rapper, Mums FP, at our old stomping ground, Portfolio Center. I’m surprised to see our jellyfish stickers still stuck up everywhere. To sweeten the pot, I’ve posted an unreleased and exclusive track from Mums FP.

M.L.P. / Nike Filmmakers Bootcamp Logo

May 28th, 2009 by Larry

I wanted to show the process behind a recently completed a logo I did for Miami Light Project / Nike Filmmakers Bootcamp. It’s a 4 week summer camp where Miami youth get to learn vital skills necessary to filmmaking. I wanted to illustrate a continuous strip of film spelling out the initials for Filmmakers Bootcamp, while incorporating equal parts of both sponsor identities. I did this by incorporating Miami Light Project’s logotype (completely spelled out) and placing a simple Swoosh in the top right hand corner of the mark. It wasn’t necessary to write “Nike” as well, as we are all aware of the equity already associated with the Swoosh.

This track has been bangin’ all over town as of late, so I felt it was necessary to post sooner than later. Atlanta-based DJ Smiles flipped the original Miami Bitch track by LMFAO for our city. He also brought in some local talent such as, Niko Villamor, 080 from T!Katz, and Grip Plyaz to mention some of the city’s most-endearing spots, such as the infamous EL BAR. Check out the 3rd verse by Grip. It’s the best one.

Shouts to Tunde from Fresh.I.Am for the track’s artwork! They’ve been doing a great job highlighting talent in this city, so make sure you follow their RSS feed.

Megan Huntz @ Gen Art’s Fresh Faces Annual Fashion Show

April 10th, 2008 by Georgios

Our girl, Megan Huntz, has been selected for Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion annual fashion show in Miami on April 12th, 2008. This event features 9 top emerging designers from New York, Miami and Atlanta. This high profile affair will draw over 1,000 guests to the Gansevoort South in South Beach, for a runway show staged under the stars and over the pool with a direct backdrop of the ocean. Fresh Faces in Fashion has become Gen Art’s largest and most prestigious fashion program, created to propel the careers of up-and-coming fashion and accessories designers. Gen Art’s fashion events have proven to be a successful launch pad for notable designers including Zac Posen, Rebecca Taylor, Chaiken, Shoshanna, Cloak, Twinkle, Milly and Louis Verdad.

January 2008 marked the launch of Megan Huntz’s signature dress line at Dou 16 in Barcelona; a reflection of her personal expression of fashion based on her accumulated research and experiences. This dress line is an accumulation of Huntz’s design research and personal expression of fashion: a simple focused concept on one object of design, interesting materials that enrich it, accessible exclusivity and style that reflects fun and effortless elegance for everyday life. She says, “Wear one to do your grocery shopping!”

Megan Huntz Dresses is currently being sold at Zsu Zsa, a boutique that has become a classic staple of the super chic girls of Barcelona for over a decade. Zsu Zsa designs and sells its own label in its small but lovely shop in the Born neighborhood of Barcelona, together with collections of other young, up-and-coming designers.

Good Luck Megan!! We’re sure you’re gonna rock it in Miami. Hope you like the photo. You’re lucky we didn’t post some of the more scandalous photos, we’re saving those for when you become famous.

So if you happen to be in Miami this weekend, go show some love and support our girl.
