rdqlus1 While hip(ster) hop clowns were checking for Kanye and some kicks they don't even really like, they should have been checking for me! Yeah… silver. Okay, #backtowork. 14h
  •   rdqlus1 @eastparkbklyn so far as I can tell, the woven PrimeKnit is a metallic silver, no 3M. And they will get show dirt far less than the white. But you know I'm getting those too… the white are GR and there will be plenty on June 1. These silvers are the limited. 11h
  •   runniki Jesus, those Kayne shoes are hideous. Wtf. 11h
  •   eastparkbklyn I didn't realize the silvers were limited. Def going to scoop a pair. Thinking I'm grabbing the all white collective pair instead of the white GR. 11h
  •   rdqlus1 @runniki hahaha! Well, he is hideous but if you haven't put a pair on, I'ma need you to zip it and let me take you to Scheels for lunch and a try on 5h
  •   rdqlus1 @eastparkbklyn I've seen the all whites but chalked it up to pre-production samples. Even the production pic of these silvers was very different. Hmmmm... 5h
  •   thelukewoodford Nice 2h
  •   helzkay That color tho!!! 1h

rdqlus1 You can't claim a future you didn't put a deposit on. So many people need to ease up on that noise. #RDQLUS #quotables #RDQLisms 2d

rdqlus1 On injured reserve but I needed to move a bit. The Almighty Wifey made me get off the couch for a bit. "Brunch in a Cup!" 2d

rdqlus1 Man, I must be doing something right because even these birds out here are haters! Never fails!!!! LOL! 6d

rdqlus1 Just a little form study for a little something I own with my guys. Fancy business cool kids call it "entrepreneurship"… nah, bruh. It's just the mesh point where acquired skills—both purposeful and by chance—are applied to the hustle I was raised with. So #RDQLUS. 6d

rdqlus1 #TBT to one of the illest logos I've ever designed, for the silliest of reasons; my friend Lori was brilliant and so beautiful and tall (a former model) that she & I used to joke that she was too good to be real, she was either goddess or robot… or both!!!! There was even a hilarious backstory that she didn't have bedroom, but rather a golden room that shined like the sun—it was either heaven, or she recharged by the golden light. Hahaha! (May have been tipsy while talking about this, I can't say). So one day I get a text from her asking, "hey... Will you design me a 'Goddess Robot' logo?!??" "Uhhhh, hell yes I will!" Joke or no joke, if design is being done, I don't skimp on the skills! So I crafted her this Art Deco style pictogram based on her stunningly angular face and asymmetrical '20s flapper hairdo. 6d

rdqlus1 With handmade nuances, knocked out a "Gatsby'esque" modification to a #RDQLUS client logo for some specialty use. 7d

rdqlus1 You would think the U.S. Small Business Association would know better. Perpetuating the trend of devaluing the work of professionals. Creative pros; don't fall for the BS… don't do "spec" work! 7d
  •   dsicle They can GTFOH with that 7d
  •   rednil YTMND 7d
  •   jjacobchadwick There really is a disconnect in the government mindset (noticeably in dc), even with the relatively "cool" agencies as to how to engage with the creative community.
    This seems to follow the structure of government contracting/grants: we'll tell you what we are looking for, you send us a (hefty) perfect application, and we will vote on if it's good enough among the rest (and cheapest). 7d

rdqlus1 Accessorize essentials according to the smallest details; I set off a very basic look with rose gold accessories based on the tiny detail of the brass medallion of my #Adidas ProShell(s). So #RDQLUS! Always design your first canvas... You! 1w

rdqlus1 As I lay there in my final pose, with her helping me, my favorite Björk track came to mind; "All is full of love." Exhausted and empowered, my ass was simultaneously kicked & cared for lovingly, and I am a thousand times appreciative. Thank you, my "Sweet" for the lessons & challenges today. You are indeed spiritually gangsta' and oh so #RDQLUS! You can roll with me all day, e'ry day! #StayGleaming! 1w

rdqlus1 Most claim to not pay attention to haters. Damn that… I dig them! They're actually the realest. And life is balance; if no one hates on you, then you probably aren't doing anything worth loving either. "If you ain't gon' hate on me, don't tell me nothing!" #truth #RSQLisms #quotables #actlikeyouknow 1w

rdqlus1 Couldn't make it to @overeasyomaha this morning, so I made myself some "pancake dippers" and egg cupcakes. Real food, good portions, all my breakfast favorites and not 350 calories on this sauce plate. And a lot less sugar because I dip in 100% pure grade-A maple, instead of pouring Mrs. Butterworth over the top… Creativity in the kitchen, bruh! 1w

rdqlus1 It's a real and genuine smile-enduser to see a mark #RDQLUS designed living a long, productive life. @ThickLines (as @draplin would say) and simplicity to deliver a timeless message. Designed many years ago in collaboration w/ my dear friends at @emspacegroup. Thrive on! Oh… and ride that pedal rocket to work tomorrow! 2w

rdqlus1 Like I said… Dave Koenig & I are the illest when we squad up! Just a peek at a few steps showing his original hand-drawn artwork, blue-lined into #RDQLUS brand identifying supremacy. 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @moo_rah cmon now... Don't flatter. 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @archietekt thank you sir! @davekoenigart is a true craftsman and creative collaborator. There were things about his drawing that wouldn't translate to a brand mark, and he never flinched in in having full trust for my take on his work. Who says creatives can't work together. 2w
  •   ripplemdk Love the arrow in the frond. Nice that is. Strong work as always. 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @ripplemdk I love using balanced asymmetry like that. Hiding things on one side of a design (obviously or not) to tip the logical & comprehensive balance but keeping the visual symmetry. Thanks for noticing! 2w
  •   gypsytradingpost Wow! 2w

rdqlus1 Working on a #RDQLUS new collab w/ my guy Dave Keonig to refresh his brand identity. I dig taking his famous tattoo & fine art style and creating functional brand identity systems. It's not as simple as some might think, but Dave gets it—that's why I love working with him. 2w

rdqlus1 You know you're cursed w/ a constantly creative brain when your first thought is not, "damn, their tearing up my drive! I have to go the other way" and instead it's "damn… safety orange, navy, green and gray is a dope color palette!" #RDQLUS 2w

rdqlus1 Just got "Lady" back from some routine servicing and for a guy who used to drive a crappy Ford Taurus, it felt like I got kicked in the nuts. But then I got to thinking… how fortunate am I to have THAT be the biggest worry I had today, and be able to pay the fee without any real worry?! #Blessed is barely a strong enough word to describe it. What a weird, amazing life I've lead, and I'm way too young to be able to even say that. I'm gonna go eat some ramen & water now. LOL! 2w

rdqlus1 Nearly 10 years ago, I started to get uncomfortable. Little did I know it was the best thing ever. It was only afterward that I realized these unfortunate events weren't always so bad, they were signs that I was growing when the world around me was stagnant. Like too-small clothing, of course the fit was getting weird. Started moonlighting as RDQLUS in various ways in 2004. In June of '06 I became a fully independent creative consultant & designer. But the events of 2005 are when and why #RDQLUS CREATIVE was born. Never wanted to be the boss, just wanted to apply my skill and craft the most effective way and trust my own instincts. 10 years later, and the things I've seen and been able to accomplish still shocks even me; from RDQLUS & RDQLUS Goods & Cloth, to speaking for years at HOW Live, to Connoshoer, to River City Social Club, to Common Co. & Flat Black Print with my boys, to #WeDontCoast, #OSDLive with my national team, and a host of great clients who have gotten a little RDQLUS with me… the name & #HVYCRWN mark means something and that's all I could ever dream. So… in about 4 mos. I'm gonna celebrate a decade of being RDQLUS. Gotta think of something fun. I'll keep you posted so you can boogie with me! 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @dyanavalentine you've been "ride or die" with me since day one! And I thank you! 2w

  •   rdqlus1 @allworknosleep thank you, homie! We've got plans you and I. Another 10 years worth at least! 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @melissamroczek all types of tight, itchy, ill-fitting, get outta here'ness! LOL! 2w
  •   rdqlus1 @Brynmooth the world can blame you in large part for my brand of crazy! I love you forever for the confidence and push you gave a kid you barely knew. I hope I've made you of all people proud over the years. 2w
