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).
