Our friends at Lure Design in Orlando just passed the 20 year mark in the industry and wanted to celebrate with a big bash on February 17th. It was an event attended by all. The Lure Crew of Jeff, Sarah and Paul did a really great job of sharing the greatest hits of the studio and their work in fun ways. Here's a look at what you missed minus all the people...

Had a great Night out at the student SPOT Showcase event / Tad Carpenter talk at the Orange Studio. There was some great student work and really thought out displays that left everyone a little envious of the student's access to sweet stuff like laser cutters and CNC machines... Tad was good too, but we all knew that was going to be the case.
On September 6th, Daryl-the-intern and I left the office and headed south to the Orange County Convention Center to spend the day at the Bi-annual Surf Expo. It's always a great to see clients, meet new ones and take in ton of inspiration along the way. The September show also includes the wakeboard/waterski stuff so it's cool to see the most bad-ass & expensive wake boats on the planet and drool over the edges of their beautifully-detailed upholstery. There were some cool boards from Byerly, Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Obscura and more. Had a fun time catching up with some old friends at Meyer Boarding Co and got to see their new land paddleboards, which are sweet. While cruising the show floor I spotted a cool new skateboard company called STRGHT that uses a sandblasting technique to hand-carve their boards before hand-painting them. Also spotted a booth for the designery notebooks, called Field Notes. Got to see a cool work-in-progress chalkboard mural on skateboards by artist Joshua Noom. But, the highlight of my day was hanging out with the guys of Iron & Resin who've got a really cool thing going out of Ventura, CA. I love their aesthetic and all the fun hand-made details they put into everything. They even hand-stitched their lookbooks and gave us some stickers/patches/and a rag pouch with screen printed rag. Fun stuff.
Here's a sampling of some of what we saw at the show.
Friday the 3rd, we took in the The Giant Illustrators Picture & Process Show, at the UCF Emerging Arts Center downtown. The purpose of the show was to give viewers a glimpse into the illustrator’s process from concept to final product. Each artist had a different approach to showing their works-in-progress from very organized to a collage of sketches and inspirations.
We got to catch up with our friend, Anna Bond, of Rifle Design, who is one of the artists on display. She’s one of our favorite local artists and has just scored a deal to sell some of her items in Anthropologie.
The art will be on display for the whole month, so check it out if you’re in the Orlando area.
