You’ve been working on your iTunes project with Christian Rigal for some time now and heard it was supposed to be released for Christmas. Is there a new release date for it now?
Yeah it’s been a little over a year and a half now, we wanted to drop it on Christmas but we had issues clearing the song that we’re using for the video. We haven’t set a release date for it yet but it’s very close to being finished.
I know you were hesitant to add the Thunder Blue to your line at first but now you’re digging it, what made you change your mind? What do you think of some of the wild colors vs solid colors?
I’ve always been a fan of bright colors but I’ve just been really into dark colors lately. I’m happy that we went with the Thunder Blue! People are responding to it well. Change is good haha.
Wild colors are really interesting for the fact of personality and happy vibes. I love solid colors for the reason of it being straight forward and having more options to color coordinate your parts.
What is one feature or item in your War Horse line that you like the most and why?
The frame for sure! Stoked on the geometry and the entire design of the frames. I’m looking forward to dialing in a few more things with the next colorway.
You have anything big planned or in the works for 2017?
I have few things that I’m extremely hyped on that will be announced very soon. If you’re interested in knowing, just check the inter-web in a few weeks.
