MSU Snowboard Club Goes Underground

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2010 by bendey14


Finally.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m an avid shredder upon the ol’ snowboard and naturally I had to jump on MSU’s 2010 Club shirts, not just because I love snowboarding, but because I knew it would be an awesome project.

My fellow shredder and good buddy, Chad, threw the project at me a few weeks ago…shit took off like a storm. A blizzard actually.  Despite me being physically deprived of internet for almost a month, Chad and I were able to make ends meet and help this season’s MSU SBC club shirts become something to reckon with. Props to Nathan Urban for providing some reverse side graphic genius.

A HUGE shoutout to Chad, Nathan, and the entire MSU SBC family, ya’ll are too much! Good luck on an awesome year, Park City is going to shit their snowpants.

Want one? Get at me:

Volume 5 is released despite things heating up down in Chicago and Miami. The DKA Life will be squeezing the work in between medical classes from now on, while The Vivid Underground is busy earning those dead presidents. This Playlistings edition has got a bit of everything; reggae, remixes, R with-a-little-bit-of-B, radio destined rips, and some regular ol’ ridiculous rap bangers.

TRUE COLORS

Posted in Film + Video, Music, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2010 by bendey14

True Colors isn’t your everyday stop motion video. It combines multiplying cubes and spray paint that seems to have a mind of it’s own among a vacant warehouse. All digital-effect free. Which may not sound all that impressive, but just wait til you watch it.

Props to Quintessenz Creation for amazing work!

Playlistings Volume 4 has dropped. The cover design I might add; has been in development from the start of Playlistings (back in June). Literally getting tweaks every night accompanied by my Vitamin Water infused concoctions. Not really, that’s gross, but seriously.

While 50 Cent does NOT make an appearance on this mixtape, you’ll get your recommended daily dosage of Vitamin OG.  We’ve got some sophomore leaks, some tunes from the veterans getting the itch, and some fresh squeezed Underground jams. This is one you don’t want to miss. Click that download link above; Mom always said to take your vitamins.

Guerilla x Influencer Marketing Activation

Posted in Commercials + Virals, Film + Video, Packaging, Products with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2010 by bendey14

This a quick video showing some great geurilla marketing for a preview release of Lost Planet 2 by ALT TERRAIN.

The video game copies were frozen in blocks of ice and placed outside select stores in a handful of cities around the U.S. The concept arose from the videogame’s narrative of an “ice planet” that is melting and breaking apart. Neat idea.

Couldn’t you just play with that all day?  Graffiti Analysis is an extensive ongoing study in the motion of graffiti. I’m not sure how it all works, but software was created to capture unseen gestures involved in the creation of the users tag. Read all about it here!
