The design part was fun. We kept the book understated so that the people we profiled got center stage. One of my pet peeves with books done by designers is that the book sometimes says more about the designer than the people they are showcasing.

You can apply that same philosophy to many things. Remember snowboarding — compared to skateboarding and surfing — is a mainstream Olympic sport. The public perception is that the industry is self-made, but snowboarding has changed a lot since the 80s. I actually preferred working with them when we had low budgets because they were willing to take more risks.

But we put Modern Dog in a position of opportunity and worked for K2 from August — December We witnessed what happens when a trend explodes and a lot of money starts pouring in.
