Mike Dytri on Breaks of 10

My old friend Mike Dytri is one of those “never not working” types that gets you pumped to go accomplish things, and on top of that I love the irony of him being such a “design guy” that you’d never know that, just for fun, he’s also a MMA killing machine.

I met Mike back in early 2000 when he was doing all of the creative for MOSH, which was a cool time because he was exposing all of us BMX kids to some fun stuff… introducing us to the staff at Big Brother, having our ads shot by fashion and skate photographers, and hooking us up with free custom-made, shrink-wrapped graphic tee shirts from his line Subfreakie.

Most recently, with his brand Ludwig Van, he’s collaborated with Vans to make an interesting run of shoes that have gone over quite well.

Read a quick interview with Mike at Breaks of 10.

Ludwig Vans

Last week we got to hang with our old friend Mike Dytri at the Fred Segal party for the introduction of the shoe he designed for Vans. This project is all over the internet but the best way to get the story is via this awesome video by TigerTiger.

Giant Camo

Mike Dytri, who’s been doing the art direction for MOSH/Giant BMX for the past 8 years, just posted a few photos of his new Giant Method on the blog for his clothing company, Ludwig. He had his bike custom painted by Heath Pinter and it’s looking dope. He also posted an old Mosh ad with Heath Pinter’s custom camo frames he did years back. I’ve always loved Mosh’s ads and it’s rad to see the camo one again!
