2012 SUP Awards
The Public Works was approached by Grind Media earlier in the year to design awards for the 2012 SUP Awards. This was on the heels of completing another set of awards for the 2012 Powder Awards (another Grind Media subsidiary). We truthfully went into this project not knowing much about stand up paddle boarding, but through the help of the team at Grind Media, we came away with a better understanding of the sport and the passion SUP athletes possess.
The Grind Media team wanted a design…

Colorado Freeride Festival awards
After spending the past five years at Winter Park Resort, Crankworx moved on to focus on other locations. However, our good friend Bob Holme was not going to let that stop WP from hosting the summer’s premiere mountain bike event in Colorado. They in turn created the Colorado Freeride Festival, a fresh take on the comp of year’s past.
We’ve been fortunate to design and fabricate the awards for Crankworx and WP the past five years, and this summer was no different for CFF.…

Oakley OPJ trophy
After completing the Oakley Surf Shop Challenge (OSSC) championship trophy and OSSC Regional trophies, Oakley asked us to build a trophy for this year’s Oakley Pro Junior (OPJ) in Japan. Since we knew this trophy was going to be awarded on site in Japan, we looked to classic Japanese architecture and culture…

Spyder shoot in Maui
In order to shoot a campaign for Spyder and Dick’s Sporting Goods, we were “forced” to travel to Julia Mancuso’s summer home in Paia, Maui. Being a World Cup alpine ski racer, Julia’s travel, competition and training schedule would crush most people. So, once The Public Works met up with Julia, we needed to jockey around her schedule which included several hours of training in the morning and several hours of outdoor activities in the afternoon. We were happy to oblige. Though focused…

Whole Foods Market Sampling Bike Car
Whole Foods Market came to The Public Works looking for an innovative way to support and market their events, while simultaneously providing samples of their products. Our solution: a custom-designed and custom-built human-powered bike car with a trailer. The bike car saw serious use in the Roaring Fork Valley near Aspen, where it was used to announce the grand opening of an entirely new store in Basalt. The bike car is currently configured to be a trail mix / granola sampling bar. The reaction…

The Bar Room Brawl
The Public Works recently joined up with Moet Hennessy to document the Bar Room Brawl event, which takes place during the week-long Tales of the Cocktail event in New Orleans. Shooting this kind of event is mishmash of action, portrait, architecture and product photography, with a garnish of dodging 1200 eager customers. To be able to shoot an event like this, it helps to be fully immersed in all that is going on. In other words, it helps…

2012 Red Bull Gamebreakers Championship Trophies
Red Bull Game Breakers is very simply put — “Football with More Game!” It’s high school football, Red Bull style. This seven on seven tournament, consisting of sixteen regional qualifiers and one final in Dallas, will no doubt separate the players from the “game breakers” and give the best teams in the region (who might not otherwise have the chance to play each other) the opportunity to compete.
After completing the awards last year in 2011, we were asked…

Summer Red Bull trophies
It’s summer again, and of all the things Summer brings, athletic and cultural events are usually on top of everyone’s list. Red Bull is no exception, putting on regional qualifying events for two of their biggest traditional sporting events, King of the Rock and Gamebreakers.
In the last month alone, we’ve built the regional trophies for this year’s King of the Rock and Gamebreakers events. We also built the full set of trophies for the finals of the Southeast Karting…

Retail pieces at Norski Sport Rental
In a testament to our new website and the scope of work that we do, we were contacted by Norski Sport Rental in Keystone after they found our services on the internet. They were interested in having us build some pieces for their store, as they were set to double the size of the shop, beginning with the 2012 Summer season.
After designing a 3D model of the entire store, we set to work on Phase 1, a new cash wrap and three workbenches. We recently finished the install, and here’s some…
