¿ Sabias qué el concepto de Mods Vs Rockers se originó en inglaterra en los años de 1964, tras varias batallas campales entre estas dos culturas urbanas?
- Los Mods se caracterizaban por conducir scooters, vestir a la moda y escuchar Blues, Ska y soul.
- Los rockers conducían motocicletas clásicas de alto cilindraje (cafe racer) y poseían una estética propia del rock and roll de la década del los 50´s
Las confrontaciones fueron tan grandes que en su momento generaron pánico en la sociedad británica, pero con el tiempo se volvieron un tema cultural, incluso existió una película llamada Quadrophenia Movie que describe el pensamiento de esta época en los jóvenes británicos.
#TBT my very first real graphic design project. I was commissioned to rebrand Squee Gee brand skateboards and scooters with a new logo. This was all before I knew how to use Adobe. I relied strictly on my hand drawn illustrations. The original was and alien riding a skateboard (all due to my raving days! Lol) with my custom typeface shown in the picture. The only change was to keep the face of the original logo. I was paid pretty well for hand drawn sketches. It was cool going into @toysrus and seeing it on shelf but the best part was that it was selling out and I wanted to grab a few for myself and a mother asked if she could take one that I was buying so that she can gift it to her son who wanted it really bad! #startedfromthebottom#humblebeginnings#thebirthofpaintedlabel#paintedlabeldesignstudio#graphicdesign#skateboarding#scooter#squeegee#toysrus#cantknockthehustle
Made it to the @AIMExpo this afternoon, and WOW! They sure know how to put on a show. I feel like a kid in a candy store here. I wanted to mention someone I met today, his name is Paul Pelland aka Longhaulpaul. Paul was diagnosed with MS in 2005, and has been battling ever since. For the last five years, Paul has ridden his motorcycle over 250,000 miles around the United States and Canada to help raise money for a cure for his disease. He has already raised $100,000 on his incredible journey. This guy is an amazing human being. It would mean a lot to me if you would follow him on his journey to a million miles.
His journey is an inspiration for any audience, he empowers and encourages others with or without challenges in life to find ways to follow their dreams and passion. Way to go Paul. So glad I met you.
Gonna be a great weekend. Love you all.
