The Inspiration

Southern California based lifestyle brand Bball Junkies announces a collaboration with directors Bobbito Garcia & Kevin Couliau for the documentary “Doin’ It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC”. The idea of the collaboration stems from BBJ’s belief in the movement that continues to define the brands’ existence, as well as their involvement in promoting the documentary through hosted screenings in Los Angeles and Orange County earlier this summer.

The design entitled “The Colby Tee” was inspired by the work of the Colby Poster Printing Company, who was known worldwide for producing bright, fluorescent hyper-colored posters with bold typography. The “Colby-style” of printing dated as far back as the late 40’s, was used by many establishments to promote movies, events, political campaigns and concerts during that time. Unfortunately at the end of 2012, the Los Angeles based institution closed its doors permanently, leaving behind an old art form that may soon be forgotten.
