Matt St. G in the Studio
Old Boston flatland friend / fellow AIB alumni / now Wieden Kennedy advertising design wizard Matt St. Gelais came by the office earlier for a rainy day mini ramp session. After some micro-mini riding, we messed around with shooting some photos in the studio. Not the biggest space for getting into flatland BMX tricks, but we made it work. Matt, since I’ve known him, has a lot of weird positions and switches when he rides. We got a few shots under the lights of the studio, including the cross-handed, cross-footed megaspin thing above. More after the jump, including a shot of the new press we added to the screen printing room the other day. We upgraded from a table-top 4-color to a 6-color, 4-station. I had to do some rearranging, but the new office allows for a larger press which I’ve been wanting for a long time. We aren’t a screen printing shop, but we print all the Yobeat apparel in-house, and this will really speed things up, and give us more flexibility. Screen printing is what made me go to art school, so it’s awesome to finally have the space to have this stuff to work with. Being able to design stuff, print stuff, and shoot photos of stuff, then go out and play on the mini ramp, all under one roof, is awesome.
