Q&A: OMFGco

OMFGco is a group of creative/talented “thing makers” out of Portland, Oregon. Their design agency runs the gamut from print to signage to interiors, all of which looks and feels great. Mathew Foster, Fritz Mesenbrink, and Jeremy Pelley are guys behind OMFGco and I shot them some questions about what they do.

Who Is Robert Loeber?

By now, most people within BMX are familiar with The Albion. They either have one, have seen one or they’re fiending to get their hands on one. The quality of the content, combined with a strong and minimal layout makes for a great overall magazine.

…But how about the person in charge of making it look as good as it does? That person is Robert Loeber. He hails from the UK and you may already be familiar with some of his stuff.

I threw some questions his way about a few things, so click below to check it out.

Interview: Brian Kachinsky

If the term “pro-as-fuck” applies to anyone, it’s Brian Kachinsky. When I sent him this interview for example, he hammered out the bare bones of it immediately while in transit to Wisconsin (he wasn’t driving though, that would have been extra impressive/dangerous) on his laptop. But on top of that, BK has a great image, knows how to represent his sponsors well and has the great riding (and brutal slams) to back it all up. Oh, lets not forget about The Bakery

Click below to check out my interview with Brian Kachinsky.

Thanks to Andrew Brady and David Leep for the pics.

Interview: Tim “Wolfman” Harvey

When it comes to Hip-Hop sites/blogs, Nahright is the only one I check. It’s got pretty much everything I’d need to know about (sans ofwgkta) in one place and it’s easy to view.

Go HERE for an interview with Eskay from Nahright regarding Hip-Hop marketing. It’s a pretty good read.

Interview: Chase Dehart

Going into this interview, I really didn’t know Chase that well personally. I think we’ve only briefly met 2 times at the most, so I was especially interested in throwing him some questions once the idea popped into my head. I’m definitely stoked with what I got back. I think this interview gives you a good all around look into Chase Dehart, and what he’s about.

Thanks to Jon Stars for the photos.

Interview: Justin Kosman

Motivation + Talent + Hustle = Justin Kosman

That little equation pretty much sums up Kosman to me, and I’m sure you will feel the same after reading this interview. He is a behind-the-scenes move maker whose work is very much out front. Unless you avoid all forms of BMX media, there’s a 1000% chance that you’ve seen his work everywhere.
