4 year anniversary party
Hard work pays off. If you were in attendance at our four year, you completely understand this phrase. With a tasteful mix of business and pleasure we unveiled what we have been up to since the 2 year anniversary in 2014. We debuted the expansion of Studio A, Ori Media offices, our new event space "Studio B" (see more at studioelevn.com and orimedia.com).
We also introduced the creative commons area, an open office space for entrepreneurs and small business owners alike to rent in order to focus on their craft. With the new Canon Print Studio setup, we were able to decorate the redesigned our suites with large format hi-res photos that we have shot over the years. With food from Aristos , beautiful floral arrangements from Esprit Raw Flowers, and alcohol sponsors such as 5 Wives Distillery, Outlaw Distillery, and Uinta Brewing, the over 900 guests were enjoying every minute of it.
Jake Ori, who hand built all of the steel office/studio furniture and glass vestibule with sliding bookshelf, showcased his latest creative work in the form of to stunning custom motorcycles. His first build, a beautiful 1985 BMW K100 RS turned into a Batman-esque monster, sat alongside Jake's own 1994 Yamaha Virago 1100, which displayed a very aggressive stance paired with a nickel plated tank and hand fabricated tail section (check the images below). I'm no geologist, but these bikes rocked! Along side this motorcycle theme was our clothing rack (Johnny Bones) and my Harley Sportster (a savage beast of wheelie legend).
Downstairs in Studio B, Joey Jonaitis hosted a beautiful gallery showcasing his very own polaroid photography titled "Discontinued". The film that Joey used to shoot these photos in the last 4 years is no longer being produced, making these photos V rare AF. Hit him up on the DM @joeyjonaitis.
Clients and friends alike joined the festivities celebrating an amazing four years of community and collaboration. From elite business owners to snazzy young millennials, the gathering proved to be immensely diverse.
Huge thanks to CANON USA and everyone that helped us put together and celebrate our past, present and future. Also, big thanks to our friends at Slug Magazine for covering the event! Head over to their site to check out a fancy little write up on their experience at the fiesta.
Until next time you little MUTHA-CLICKHAS!
