After interviewing Scott Johnston a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to get a similar interview with Kelly Bird about his move from Lakai to Nike SB. Kelly’s super busy transitioning into his new position as global brand manager at SB, but took some time out to answer a few questions. Check out the interview over on the Ride Channel.
Generally speaking, I like to have as much fun as possible. The lines between working and chilling often get blurred, but somehow it works. This was definitely the case when we took a field trip to test out the new Tony Hawk game with Black Dave, Spencer Fujimoto, and Travis Glover. Check it out on Complex TV.
I interviewed Scott Johnston for the Ride Channel about his background in footwear design and transitioning from Lakai to Adidas. I’ve always had a ton of respect for Scott’s skating and design aesthetic over the years, so it was cool talking to him about those topics. He’s definitely bringing a lot to the table at the Adidas design department, I’m looking forward to what he comes up with.
