We just got this from spectacular surprise from Clinker Clint Goulden. Yep, we designed Pete Rose’s new tattoo! You know, no big whoop. This made Jason and myself so happy. Thanks Clint! And thank Mr. Rose! You deserve to be in the Hall of Fame!
A few months ago Sportsnet asked us to be apart of a special issue titled “The Greatest (and not so great) Uniforms in Sports”. We were honored to be asked and you can read a whole ton of Jason commenting on some of sport’s great logos by grabbing a copy at magazine racks everywhere as well as online here.
Yo! We’re stocking the Cincinnati Reds new BP featuring the Mr. Red Legs we designed. Below you’ll see the final artwork we designed as well as the sketch we used to create it. We were so pumped that they’re using on their new BP hat and we’re equally excited that we can offer it to Clinkers in our store on HatClub.com. Grab yours here.Kick this weekend’s ass Clinkers!
Clinkers! Jason and I wanted to take a victory lap around The Clink Room today. The Cincinnati Reds just unveiled their new BP hats for the 2013 season and the chose to adorn it with our Mr. Red Legs! We’re very excited and I’m thrilled that they’ve gone back to the 59Fifty for the BP hats. Grab yours here. We just might need to have these stocked in the Clink store soon!
And we’re back!!! This year’s Winter Meetings, down in the fine town of Nashville, was one for the books. Tons of fun, tons of work planned for the future.
One of my favorite parts of the Winter Meetings is always the Brandiose bus. Each year we pick up all our teams from the airport and drop them off at the hotel. It’s a great way to see all our friends before they head into the vast frontier that is the Winter Meetings. It’s our 5th year of doing the Brandiose bus and this year’s was the best yet. A lot of that had to do with Brandiose’s new partner, Wilson Sporting Goods!
This year, Wilson was a huge asset for us as we crafted the uniforms for our rebranded Minor League Baseball teams. We did some nutty stuff with this year’s batch of uniforms and Wilson made it all possible. So this year, we formed a partnership with Wilson to show off some of our new 2012 brands. The bus is now the Brandiose + Wilson bus. Wilson is an exciting new member of the Brandiose family. Their battle cry says it all “More Win!”
We’ll go more in-depth on how Wilson helped us bring to life our uniform designs for the 2012 season when we take you behind-the-scenes of the individual team rebrandings. But in the meantime check this super fun video we created to celebrate our new partnership. It gives you a peak behind the curtain into how a uniform is crafted from sketching to sewing. PS. The video on this thing is gorgeous. It was shot by our buddy Charles Bergquist and it’s worth watching it fullscreen.
