Hydro at the mall…
July 15, 2007
Did a little shopping today at the Florida Mall, and decided to hit a few stores, couple of which were Rip Curl and Billabong. It was quite the surprise to see stacks of shirts I’ve developed or have been part of all around the stores. And even more suprising was seeing a piece that was never paid for via the client. So it looks like I’m going to send a very high invoice for usage. grrrrr 🙂
On the billabong piece, it is just the typography. What is really annoying, and a major reason why I’m pretty much considering giving up on certian action sports brands is because that type treatment is overly used, as well as part of the Austraila main branding. They pretty much scored a good deal for $300 bucks. You would at least think i would get a slight reach around, or just a email saying thank you, but nope. Then again, i can’t complain that much either, i really do enjoy seeing it around and seeing it in use. There is always something special when you do see your work in action.
We will probably be hitting another mall tomorrow (sunday) to get a few things, so if i see anymore, i’ll post it.
