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.

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…

Oakley Surf Shop Challenge Regional Champion Trophies
For the second year in a row, Oakley asked The Public Works to design and build trophies for the Oakley Surf Shop Challenge (OSSC). Having loved the national champion trophy that we created in 2011, this year Oakley asked us to create the regional champion trophies. Keeping with the feel of the locale of this year’s national championship event—Bali, Indonesia—we created trophies to look like they were made of driftwood: a panel with weathered boards. And, in the true style…
