One of the last proposals we made for skate brand éS prior to their hiatus was a series of tees entitled “Coordinates”. Each shirt would use satellite imagery of a spot that an éS pro grew up skating. We produced one shirt as a proof of concept that showed Freedom Plaza (also known as Pulaski) in DC, the famed stomping grounds of Maryland locals like Bobby Worrest. We got through a round of revisions whereby we improved the design significantly but renamed the series “Surveillance” and changed it to San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza (or EMB). I don’t recall why we made that change but I believe the concept may have changed to the sites of legendary skate spots. Regardless the series was never made since éS shut its doors shortly thereafter.
We forgot about the tee shirt until last week when we saw that Krooked released a new video part by Worrest filmed entirely at Freedom Plaza. To commemorate the occasion here’s our unreleased t-shirts honoring Pulaski and EMB.
If you’re thinking this would have made a great series of shirts, well, we’re inclined to agree.
