Redwood City, Calif. (PRWEB) February 7, 2009
ARTSPROJEKT, the interactive and culturally relevant online community for the arts, pop culture, and action sports, announces an exclusive deal with pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek's Wild Grinders™ crew for the availability of Wild Grinders™ products on-demand.
Through ARTSPROJEKT, the Wild Grinders™ gallery will offer about thirty original character designs and logos on forty different products including t-shirts, skateboards, hats, and posters. All products are displayed as full 3D images and most products are available on-demand, produced within 24 hours of ordering. The Wild Grinders™ crew is also featured in the Nintendo DS™ version of the recently released Skate It videogame from Electronic Arts Inc (NASDAQ: ERTS) including Lil Rob™, Emo Crys™, Jay Jay™, Jack Knife™, Spitball™, and Meaty™.
"Rob is a visionary, not just as an innovator of street skating, but for continuing to bring skateboarding lifestyle and art to the core and pop culture audiences in compelling ways, without losing sight of his true skateboarding roots," said Andy Howell, former pro skateboarder and founder of ARTSPROJEKT. "Dyrdek and his Wild Grinders™ crew offer a cool brand for younger skaters, while maintaining authenticity which is crucial to a brand's success and longevity. They understand what consumers want, and continue to push limits and take it to the next level."
"Andy is known as an innovator in art and skating," said Rob Dyrdek. "He took the street skating style to the mainstream and helped bring new life to street level pop art. Now, with ARTSPROJEKT, he is continuing to bring skate art and pop art to fans who love it around the globe, helping us reach potential new fans who maybe weren't aware, and that's pretty cool."
Wild Grinders™ will also offer the merchandise on their official website, http://www.wildgrinders.com.
