After a long summer of travel, consulting & creative work and coaching my track & field training group, I settled back into the flow and began to think of ways to pool all of the energy and good things that make up—and fuel—RDQLUS CREATIVE. A more focused messaging and display of the work & words will allow everyone—from clients to casual observers—to get a better view of RDQLUS on the whole. In the last year RDQLUS CREATIVE has been tapped to help bolster a amazing boutique & and create a new nationally recognized brand of streetwear (River City Social Club, Omaha NE), was placed at the helm of a group to create & launch a successful iOS app—with users & fans as far away as Australia—dedicated to the love of footwear (Connoshoer), and still continued to do the highest level branding, identity design & creative consulting work of my career, as evident in the amazing opportunity to work on two new identity systems with the legendary Ali Shaheed Muhammed of 'A Tribe Called Quest' fame. All of this while maintaining my own beloved streetwear brand, which was the authentic and natural precipitation of this glorious hustle—RDQLUS Goods & Cloth. There was a need to explain that all of the good things that were seen happening were not replacements for RDQLUS… they came about very deliberately because of RDQLUS.
Now, who would ever believe all of this was going on simultaneously in the life & mind of one singularly crazy individual, if not housed and displayed in the same proverbial gallery? Exactly the point, hard to believe. So that's what is being done; now the professional creative & design work (RDQLUS CREATIVE), the life & style blog (The Life & Times of RDQLUS) and the streetwear brand (RG&C) can all be found in the same place. Please bear with it as things get ironed out smoothly, but I didn't want to wait any longer to get things moved in. We'll find a place for it all as we go. Welcome to RDQLUS.
