Brent Humphreys- Le Tour


The Tour de France fever has hit the studio. While at the Specialized bikes sales meeting the Tour was on the big screen and 700 passionate people watched as Lance Armstrong, even in third place, hogged all the air time. Talking about the Tour at Nemo with  Ryan Barrett, he shared the work of Brent Humphreys from Austin, Texas. 

The site is paced to give the viewer the sensation of looking thru a book with out the cheesy flash page flippper. The Le Tour project was a natural extension of Brent’s sense of humor and respect for the sport. 


The Le Tour project will run at Mellow Jonny’s, Austin Texas from 7/09/09 until 7/31/09.

Preserving Tokyo


With the gentrification of seedy neighborhoods on the rise, the release of Watanabe Katsumi’s book Gangs of Kabukicho, serves as a visual record of Shinjuku’s red light district.  The photographs are from the 1960s and 70s and capture characters of violence, sex and transgression. Watanabe died last year at the age of 67. This book is a testament to his incredible ability to capture subtlety.

Design for a good cause…

The Bread Art Project was created to, “increase awareness of the growing hunger problem in the US.” For every design submitted, $1 will go toward Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization.

Eat locally made bread! Support the growers closest to you! And help feed families who can’t feed themselves. It’s dire times out there.

StudioNemo Hits Up Lincoln Highschool for a Nike Bag Shoot.

We headed off to Lincoln High for the day to shoot Nike backpacks. It went incredibly smooth, even dodging hundreds of students during period crossings and stormy spring weather were never a hindrance. Big thanks to all involved and high 5 to all Lincoln Cardinals.

Rip City documentary about the Portland SK8 scene

Rip City Trailer from Milan Spasic on Vimeo.

When you travel it is hard to explain what it means to be part of the Portland community. Rip City is a great representation of how a skater in PDX might live. Artistic insight to the filming, editing and sound all make an experience that even make a place like Donald Oregon seem livable.

Rip City also has a kind of day-in-the-life feel to it, which, I think works really well. It reminds me a bit of the 2007 surf documentary, One California Day, in that in that it uses the stories of individuals to convey the bigger picture of what’s collectively going on. Chet Childress’ morning skate through the neighborhood, Sage Bolyard and Mark Red Scott’s Dreamland Skateparks segment, and Chris Nukala’s “toxic waste” project all seem to be happening at the same time and together with other parts define the core skate scene in Portland.

In the end, Rip City is like a painting, or rather a dual portrait of both Portland skater and Portland skating. It’s also an inspirational piece, although it differs from others like it. If a team skate video is like a candy bar as far as stoke factor goes, then Rip City is like a pasta dinner. The former might be appropriate as motivation for a quick session, but the latter is what you really need for long-term nourishment. Check it nice.

Sam Kuhn’s Lion Attack!!!!

When I met Sam a few years ago my first impression was this kid is gonna kill it, since then, he hasn’t stopped impressing. His amazing work ethic, creative drive, positive attitude, knowledge of equipment and straight up talent set him far apart from his peers. His ever expanding client list already consists of the likes of Nike 6.0, Snowboarder Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding, Community Transit, Avalara, Dellacio Collection, Imperial Motion, Stevens Pass, Bonfire, Ir77, Slow Runner, Roxy, your’s truly, Nemo Design and get this…he’s only 20!!!

Just about now you should stop feeling old and unaccomplished…instead, check out his motion picture collective Lion Attack. Keep it up Sam!
