Well he did say animal avatars! You could change yours to Hawk?

I saw that vid, on maybe Vimeo or any other site youtube! The guy is amazing, it would be easy to spend hours watching his stuff!

There's a lot of logos out there that are dated tbh! I thought his top gear footage was amazing, hes been making the Colin Mcrae 2 game or Xbox360. Top guy he is.

the classic dc logo is cool, its the mono graf typography all over the side of their shoes that kinda ruins the brands appeal; they used to make nice skate shoes with a simple logo on, they seem to be aimed more towards goths now :(

bad times!

Sometimes sticking to your guns can appeal to a loyal fan base. I don't know, I've never been a real fan of DC, but I know loads of people who are.

He co founded DC, nothing to do with sponsorships. He and his business partner sold DC to quiksilver a few years back though.

Really? I did not know that! That is some usefull useless info. The sale to quiksilver, might explain a lack of real risk taking in their style decisions, same thing happened to Vans when they sold it to VF.
