Late fall, 1996, Los Angeles. A cold and rainy day (with the wind chill factor, 61 degrees). We suddenly thought — hey, don’t businesses usually send something to their clients as a thank you at the end of the year? We have a sense of humor that’s slightly askew, so we just went with it as we designed our first holiday card. Now our clients get mad if we don’t send one (trust us — we tried it one year and never heard the end of it). Please enjoy a small sample.
Absolutely no idea where this idea came from. But we suspect that many of you will relate to some of the scenarios these hats are designed to remedy.
We thought it would be really funny if we sold space in our year-end card to a bunch of local advertisers. And way funnier if we got to think up the ads.
We grew up with Evel Knievel jumping motorcycles over fountains, and way too many trucks, and the Snake River. It was a sad day when he finally passed on. We decided to create a 3D tribute. With action figures.
