The Launch

posted: 17.04.2014


So April the 12th came and went, and we are finally unwinding after our official brand launch event, which had us stressed, overworked (and even occasionally arguing) over the past 6 weeks or so. Yet, it all paid off in the awesome party where we were able to showcase all our work and have lots of fun with a great crowd of friends and fans.


The venue – our beloved Dr!nk – was generously opened for our transformation by owner & good friend Dale Ramirez. Music vibes all night – secured by DJ&Producer Andy Himself (check his mix from the launch here!) and later in the night – DJ ShyGuy (who even got Elena dancing on the table at some point, ooops). Live 6′ x 10′ murals outside were created by fellow artists and designers James Hackett and Kevin Reis. We also had a cool little pop up shop (ran by darlings Roma, Melvina and Vanna) – with our entire collection on sale – from Nick’s paintings and SAYSM art prints, to already well-known and loved t-shirts & vests, as well as postcards and our newly added tote bags. We also revealed our new & all-appropriate design.


And of course, what’s a SAYSM party without cupcakes!. Endless thanks to Sharon for making those a great success of the night. Also, check this amazing time lapse of the setting up & the event itself, created for us by one very talented photographer & time-lapser Kevin Huggins.

Also, here is a series of fun little vids we created to promote the event (thanks to Scully Photography for all the collection pix).
