We Do Work

Alpinestars Moto Campaign

Alpinestars pretty much locked me down for the whole summer and the results from our work with Alpinestars are finally starting to trickle out. First up was the Villopoto Tech 10 Ad from the Motocross campaign shown above. They also contracted me to style...

HRE Wheels App

Been keeping this under wraps for a couple months. Helped out the crew at HRE Wheels with their new Smartphone / Tablet App. Pretty rad. Can't wait to play with it at SEMA when we roll up there tomorrow. For more info or to download...

LA Times x HRE

Our client HRE Wheels (who also happens to make the best automotive wheels on earth, we can't vouch for other planets) has a little gallery up on LA Times. Nothing major but it's a little behind-the-scenes look at how their wheels are made, mostly from...

Valhalla x XFusion Shox Apparel

The little apparel line for XFusion Shox dropped a few days ago. I think you have to call to order them but they are available. The Ramones-inspired crest at the bottom is a patch (the round circle on the left chest of the hoodie next...

ONE Industries Mammoth report

Got a few photos up in ONE Industries Mammoth Motocross race report. Sleeter, Hoeft, Miller, Falk & a nice Panoramic of the race, check 'em out at the links below. ONE Industries Mammoth Race Report ONE Mammoth Flickr Set...

Valhalla “Bearded Viking” Shirts

Got these a little while back but haven't had a chance to get them up in the shop because of the crazy hustle recently. Enough of the excuses though, everyone that's seen these shirts loves it. Super comfortable / great fitting Royal Blue Heather blank...

These should be on my wall by now.

A few months back I got a call from the guys at Plan B, wanting a mini-series for the team based on my “Ice & Snow” Viking. 4 boards, one each for Ryan Sheckler, PJ Ladd, Torey Pudwill and Paul Rodriguez. Check after the jump for the story & larger / more detailed images with the glow in the dark hit exposed.

OR Winter 2012

As usual, I’ve had to keep these under wraps for some time. A bunch of beanies / facemask designs for Outdoor Research last summer which recently launched so we can finally blab about them. Check them out or grab one on their site or after the jump!

Nixon Space Jellies

Just realized I never really put this up on my site / blog. My piece “Space Jellies” which I did for Nixon a couple years back. Check inside for the full piece, a bit of a story about it & most of the products they put it on.

Long Island Iced Ts

Ok, so we’ve never actually even been to Long Island but the word play was too fun not to use. Collection of our shirts, most you’ve probably seen before & 1 that’s printing soon. Check inside for the full collection, up above is just a preview.

Awesome at the front door.

A whole lot of awesome showed up at the door today. I love it when any surprise package comes in but three in a day is like Christmas to me! GodMachine, Hydro74 & The Shadow Conspiracy all come through with some amazing. Check after the jump for details, stories & links.

NXTZ W11/12 Catalog & POP

Sometimes, in the heat of the battle, we forget to post up stuff that we’ve done. This is one of those times. We started working with Dale Rehberg about a year ago now on his new endeavor, brand manager of NXTZ. Facemask designs turned into catalogs which turned into POP & branding. A season’s designs are down & now we’re working on new designs & more evolved branding. check after the jump for a few more items we’ve done for NXTZ.

Outdoor Research Labels & Trims

Sometimes doing what we do, it seems like a lifetime passes between handing off the final files & the product releasing. A while back we did a label package for OR’s new “Sidecountry” line of outerwear which was released, with great excitement, to the public this past Fall.

Check after the jump if you want to see more of the trim package we did.

Custom font for Angels & Airwaves

Our work with Angels & Airwaves continues to trickle out. Their newly relaunched website features our custom-created AvA font that we just wrapped up for them a couple days back. Check it out on their site AngelsandAirwaves.com! We'll keep posting more of our work with...

LOVE by Angels & Airwaves

This is huge and it's really just the beginning. Been working for the past couple months with the band Angels & Airwaves and their management on the branding / collateral for their five-year-in-the-making movie, LOVE. The Apple Trailer site just went up this evening, up...

Optical Dillusion on Quipsologies!

Our Optical Dillusion font was featured on Under Consideration's Quipsologies blog a few days back. Pretty cool to be amongst such amazing work! It's currently on page 9 but that'll probably change by the end of the day. Click on the pick up above to...

From back then up ’til about now

Spent the weekend putting together a collection of branding projects I've done over the years. Most of them are in here, there's a few that aren't which were lost to the great hard drive crash of '03 & a couple which haven't launched yet, so...

5,4,3,2,1…. LAUNCH


We’ve been working with the crew at Ninthward Skis for a couple months now & the fruits of our labor are ready for the world to see. If you’re unfamiliar with Ninthward, they’re a freestyle ski company going after the urban / hip hop inspired market. Super cool guys, great product and an amazing team. The site’s getting some good response a few days into the launch, check it out if you have a few – Ninthward Skis.

Or if you just want to stay on our fantabulous site, check after the jump for some screenshots.

AWSM Bro!

AWSM
Got a call a little while back from Olympic commentator / wiseguy / business owner / pro skiboarder, Todd Richards needing a logo for his new project, AWSM. The creative brief was pretty epic, “bright and colorful and fun. not really needing an icon as the the awsm is the logo too.” Check out AWSM here or check after the jump to see the logo we did in larger format.

Optical Dillusion

Optical Dillusion font by Valhalla
Dropped a font this week named Optical Dillusion. Two years in the making and countless minuscule changes and tweaks which nobody but us would ever notice it’s ready to go. If you want to see more or hear the story behind it, follow the jump!

We just got back from the ballhoo known as Interbike. Every year we make the trek out to the show to check out crazy bikes, meet with friends / clients and to take in some good times & food in Vegas.

Outdoor Research ’09 headwear line

orBeanieTeaser

It’s always nice to see your hard work go into production. A while back, we wrapped up a headwear line Outdoor Research and ever since, we’ve had to keep our yappers shut, even though we were thrilled with the work (quite easily the best headwear line we’ve done to date). Well, here’s our announcement, our OR headwear line has finally launched!

Click here to go to OR’s site and check out the whole lineup, most of our work is in the wool headwear section.

Shadow’s 2009 BTS Line

A few days ago our friends at the Shadow Conspiracy dropped their new 2009 Back to School clothing line. We've worked with the group at Shadow for almost a decade now, before Shadow was even a plan, let alone the company in bmx. Click here to...

Los Logos 4

logosTeaser

Rolling through the bookstore today and came across a pleasant surprise. Picked up the new Los Logos 4 book (complete with fancy iridescent cover) and came across a couple logos that we did for our friends at HypeType Studio over in the UK a few years ago. Not a bad little Hello there while checking out a great book. Some good stuff in there, definitely worth checking out if not buying.

Valhalla featured in “2009 Logo Trends”

adioTeas

That’s right, we’re honored to be featured on LogoLounge.com for their “2009 Logo Trends” article, calling out an opart themed design we did for Adio Skateboards saying “Psychosis: Another new sort of fill is more psychedelic-crazy lines and patterns projected onto other shapes.”

Pretty exited about this one, the article is definitely worth a look if you’re interested in design.

Click Here to check out the whole article, there’s definitely some good stuff in there!

Stoked to be in Stoked Sessions LA

laTease

Over the weekend we were part of a group show at Upper Playground in Downtown LA. Stoked Mentoring curated a slew of artists from within action sports / graffiti & street art to put on one hell of a show and raise a bunch of cash & awareness for their cause. We broke out the acrylics and masking tape to create an opart themed piece which had a color combo that would give Homer Simpson a seizure!

T Shirt 360°

360Tease

Turns out that our partners in crime, the UK’s HypeType Studio, submitted a few designs we did a few years back to a few different book companies. Always nice to have your work recognized, even if it is stuff you did 7 or 8 years back…
