Tobbe Karlsson





"Here you got an old clip from Tobbe (2007) throwing down some trickery! boya! I remember that frontflip hand slap thingy in Norway , it was soooo sick man!"

Tobbe Dampe Karlsson

Just got a phone call from my broh Tobbe Karlsson. He was down in Gothenburg for the RipCurl Rail Battle that will go down tomorrow. (Im missing it...damn shit fuck)
Anyways, during the years we have been traveling/shooting together alot. He had some serious injuries on his collarbone (broke it 3 times in a row) and after that he blew his knee out bad as hell...
He have been wobbling back and fourth in the decition of "not be a pro snowboarder anymore" , and he is still doing rehab for his injuries. But talking with him on the phone made me smile , cuz he sounded amped and happy with his steps forward on the rehab and also psyched on beeing down in gothenburg with all the "old" Team buddys. He is going to be a judge in tomorrows rail event , beeing corrupt taking half of the riders cash money!

So if you are down in Gothenburg this weekend, make sure to check the comp and the SWEDISH NITRO SNOWBOARDS VIDEO PREMIERE "enough said" !!!! going to be of the heezzay!

Good luck Tobbe and lets hang soon!

BNQT.com - Flat Fitty Interview


"Elizabeth Miller athlete/promotions coordinator at Flat Fitty"

"Some of the dudes at the Carlsbad office"

"My signature snap back cap yyyaohw!"

Huumkay!

BNQT.com recently hooked up with my team baaaoous at awesome Flat Fitty headwear , all for an update/interview! They also talked good about Me and my signature cap , that feels good!

Thanx Elizabeth , I appreciate that!!

Here is a small out take from the interview:

BNQT - FIRST OFF, WHAT DISTINGUISHES FLAT FITTY FROM OTHER HAT MANUFACTURERS?

Elizabeth - Quality is key for any brand trying to distinguish itself today. We explain how many headwear manufacturers blindly trust factories to attempt quality levels with no oversight or on-sight quality control methods. Flat Fitty allows established and upcoming brands alike to stand out, quality wise, in a very crowded and competitive marketplace. Flat Fitty has two offices in two continents; both American staffed and managed, one in Asia and the other in Carlsbad, California. The Asia office acts as the directional hub, the watchdog that makes sure clients get their design achieved to their exact vision the first time. Our Cali offices acts as the sales and marketing hub, with our primary focus being meeting clients and showing them how high our quality is compared to other manufacturers out there.

BNQT - I'M REALLY FEELING THE ANTON GUNNARSSON SNAP-BACK AND LOVE HOW THE LOGO OVERFLOWS ONTO THE BRIM. WAS THIS DIFFICULT TO DO?

Elizabeth - Yeah, Anton Gun (Gunnarsson) is simply Awesome. This guy not only kills it as a Snowboarder, he has an artistic expression and a personality that keeps people talkin'. When I first saw his 80's-inspired monster-man with old-school headband barfing I was like WTF - haha! The method used on this graphic (logo) was simply a flat embroidery. The challenge with any graphics overflowing to the top brim is that each portion of the hat (panels and brim) is custom manufactured separately. With this much detail it has to be ensured that it is matched up and joined just right, too much or too little and you'll loose the detail that Anton worked so hard to achieve. Attention to detail, quality and a solidly designed piece is what makes this design so successful. Gotta love the mystery behind what inspired this one!

Flat Fitty VS Hydro74







A while back my people over at Flat Fitty hooked up with awesome designer/illustrator Hydro74.
He did a couple of tees and some caps that are fucking ace!

Hope to get some in my mailbox soon , Elizabeth... haha

Here you go!

ABOUT HYDRO74 - DESIGN FOR HIRE.

The Thought Process:
Hydro74 is a Orlando based designer, otherwise known as Joshua M. Smith. The soul purpose of my career is to push the boundries in doing what I feel is relevant to the market as well as extract various elements and trends to be able to offer them up in my own personal work. But let’s be honest. I do what I love because I love it. Not because I have to do it, nor am forced to do it, but rather passionate about doing what I do. I firmly believe in having set style tones, yet a sense of diversity to make any various project unique to the demands that are set forth.

Services

Type Treaments & Branding
Typography is far more than just a simple addition to a product or brand, it is what sets the tone for the entire piece. Each letter has a way of reacting and uniting to form meaningful, powerful words that embrace a sense of emotion or power. With that knowledge, producing pieces that best represent the needs is what Hydro74 prides itself on to help other brands find their identity and voice, philosophically and aesthetically.

Apparel Development
Apparel is a amazing medium that is widely embraced by masses to best symbolize one’s individuality while conforming to various cliques. This is something I fully understand and appreciate. Even to the point that a close friend & I put on a T-Shirt Gallery Show that grows in attendence and online with each new version that is produced. Apparel is everything that is meaningful in design because it is a common bond everyone shares and voices our most inner feelings without having to openly state it each and every time we speak. It is the true cog in the wheel of conformity that allows us the illusion of individuality and our own personal choice to be unique in this very common world.

Illustration
Complexity and a fluid organic approach is what is highly valued in each and every piece. A Illustration to me is something that tells a story with out words needed. It builds a bond with the viewer who will either get it, or find it horrible, yet, the interaction is what is desired when doing a piece. Some Illustrations are trend based iconic structures meant to embrace the masses to encourage sales, while others are explorations turned to symbolic ideas on paper or fabric. Illustration is something I find deep meaning in.

Other Services & Development
It is not always what you might expect. Over the years of my career in design, I’ve been active in various other aspects of design that has helped create, develop and direct various pieces to become successful in their usage.

Examples:
Magazine Layouts, Book Design, Fashion & Line Development, Creative Direction & Art Direction, Packaging & Poster Design.

Macbeth Tour

This is what the hell I did at the end of this summer…

I got invited by Macbeth Europe on 3 stops of the Blink182 Euro tour. It´s was insane!

First day we hit the Area4 festival in Ludinghausen , a lot of drunk and crazy german people where there… ooh shit!

I saw two monkeys with beer helmets, people sleeping in middle of the streets during concerts and a whole lot of other X rated shit… im psyched on how people where getting so crazy down there!

I met up with Lenneke Knape , Kit Carrera, Selma Keceli the people working behind the curtain of the scene!

I was standing in the Macbeth booth , selling shoes and tees to random fucked up people… Hellz yeah
Drinking some beers , and then of to redbull and coffee straight edge style...
The reason?!
Driving after the blink show 01:00 isch in the morning to Liepzig for the other festival…
I drove the first part, super tired...then of for sleep in the Van for the rest of the Hours we had on the road.

I woke up totaly fucked in my body with a burning sun in my face, ouch!
Ship shape in the face and of to some "work" .

During the eve , it started to rain cats ´n dogs FUCK! The booth almost blew away so we called it... threw in the towel and went to the lobby bar drinking some 15year old whiskey...mmm

The day after Kit and Selma had to leave back to Holland... So me and Lenneke drove the whole way to Hamburg wich was the last stop for me.

There we had a great time! awesome show from blink , redlight hangouts and alot more....

Thanx to everybody involved!!!!

(Better live footy from the blink 182 show will follow.... huumkay)
