So I usualy keep my posts relevant to brands I work with or places I have been too, however I dont care in this case & just had to throw up some info on the new FIlson for Levis jacket. Two iconic brands doing something that a grown man can get behind. Alot of time the "colab" project is just too flavor of the month & not something any one from some college kid could represent properly. This project reminds me of the Freemans for PF FLYERS project that you will see comming in early 2011. Got mine ordered & on the way, but they back ordered untill mid November so dont sleep.

So Louie went into the Olympic qualifying events wearing none other than the never before seen NB 790 snow boots. I cant wait to get into a pair of these. (unfortunately a certain company "swooshed" in on Louie with a very large check so he would endorse there boots, o well we know where he would rather be)
Although Jesper Kouthoofd's name might not be very familiar in the U.S., it's widely known in Sweden, where the director started out as one of the founding members of creative collective ACNE, and after going solo in 2004, has gone on to become a highly respected talent—of many sorts.
Working out of his own recently launched shop, Kouthoofd, Ltd. and Swedish production company Catcom, the 38-year-old Kouthoofd has directed spots for Sony, Volvo, Ikea, H&M, Mitsubishi and more, demonstrating an all around command of storytelling, performance and visuals—often tinged with wit and humor. "Everything he does just has a great comical twist to it," explains Farfar web director Per Hansson, who also believes Kouthoofd is "equipped with probably one of Sweden's best creative minds."
In fact, film is just one of his many skills and Kouthoofd prefers to describe himself as an "experimental director," drawn more to jobs that find him not necessarily behind the camera, but in his Stockholm studio—a garage housing everything from traditional editing equipment to a complete workshop, stocked with a laser cutter, CNC router, tools and even a music studio full of vintage synthesizers for sound experiments—he sometimes does music for his own films.
The fruits of his labor include the singing robot choir that was a key component of the multiawarded Absolut Machines installation/website from Great Works. Kouthoofd created Absolut Choir out of Teenage Engineering, an "art-technology-consumer product" enterprise he launched with three software and hardware engineer buddies two years ago. T.E. has also made a "Bluetooth advertising high tech messaging system" for Sony Ericsson and has plans to soon release what Kouthoofd calls a "very special" portable synthesizer system, a modular lighting system and a new consumer product built from the technology developed for Choir. "To me, everything is interesting in one way or another," says the admitted workaholic. "I try not to be stuck in a specific discipline, but instead learn and explore anything that comes my way."

Trade show season came all to quickly. This last week we hit the new year running and got all the new Fall 2010 product down to Hunington beach for the Agenda Show. Agenda is in its 7th year & I think I have only missed one of them. I was at the first one and its crazy to see how far the show has come. There were a ton of heavy hitters there & trend setters. Overall a great way to start out the season and we got a ton done. Many Many thanks to Adrienne & Jennifer who made the trip from Boston to help with the show and Jenn from our LA office held it down like usuall.
