The world famous Carlsbad Gap was torn down Thursday, February 23, 2012 to make room for renovations on the campus of Carlsbad High School in Carlsbad, California. Anyone who remotely paid any attention to skateboarding the past 20 years knows of Carlsbad. It was a proving ground. Follow the jump for a retrospective history of the gap from a couple years back.

Valhalla “Bearded Viking” Shirts

February 20, 2012  |  Clothing, Random, We Do Work  |  No Comments

Got these a little while back but haven’t had a chance to get them up in the shop because of the crazy hustle recently. Enough of the excuses though, everyone that’s seen these shirts loves it. Super comfortable / great fitting Royal Blue Heather blank with a 1 color screen print on it, obviously of a bearded viking with a cool crow popping out of his beard. Get one here, $24 shipped across the US or $28 throughout the universe.

Video prepared by another branding genius, Saul Bass, for bell systems. It’s a bit long with the first half being basic identity design stuff & the second half (around 13 minutes) being the pitch itself.

Adam Ladd asked his 5-year-old daughter what she thought of a bunch of logos. Her comments are pretty interesting & it’s also scary how many she knows.

Travis basically made a “north shore” snowboard run. Thankfully they chose to do it in the only area in America with snow this season.
