[Benny Gold] – 2012 Official Discussion Thread

Benny --- My name is Gregg and from Denver, Colorado. I am avid follower of your design work and I am a graphic designer & skateboarder myself. I had the chance to meet you at the launch of your fall line in 2010 and I continue to be very impressed by the design & product you put out. You take great care in what you give to your customers & it shows. While there, you had told me to email you with any questions I had, but hadn't gotten any replies. I know you are a busy guy, so when I saw this, I thought this would probably be the best way to get a reply. I am currently working on designing a brand of my own and really want to talk to you about how you started. I know you always say to start small and strong with quality rather than quantity, but for your the initial launch of your line, how many pieces did you release? I am also in the starting stages of design and development and working on looking for vendors. I know you have had a lot of help having worked with Huf, but how did you go about looking for vendors? Stay local or look for best price & quality?
