To coincide with the new flagship store openings this year, Burton worked with a group of friends and family from around the world on some exclusive Burton Flagship store products. The project is called Artist 13 Series, and it’s called this because, as of July 13, 2007, Burton will release a new product on the 13th of each month for one full year. The first release is a set of t-shirts co-designed by New York based brand Mighty Healthy. Thanks to Steven Vogel we have a sneak peek after the jump.

The Freshjive Resurgent Series is a collection of t-shirts featuring the first 4 graphics Rick Klotz ever designed way back in 1989. Rick first came up with these graphics for an agit prop assignment when he was still in art school. The Resurgent Series shirts are now available online at Digital Gravel and at the Reserve store on Fairfax in LA.
Between 89 and 92, Freshjive used to do promotional videos. Frank Sacramento, who was getting into video direction at the time (De La Soul, House of Pain, Dru Hill, Sir Mix A lot, etc.) used to film them for Freshjive. In reference to their OLD VIDEO, Freshjive have put out a NEW VIDEO, which features 2 of Rick Klotz OG friends, Ben Gruenberg and Sandman, who also appear in the first videos. You can check out the new video and the original (in 3 parts) at Freshjive.

For the upcoming release of their Foot Patrol x New Balance 576, Foot Patrol has created a special promotional video highlighting the different aspects of this sneaker. With a variety of different ‘N’ logos available, we see no less then 4 different choices given to allow a full range of customization. The video is well executed and a bit quirky but definitely achieves the desired message. Stay tuned for more information regarding this release.
