Birthed 2000 years after his brother Jesus, enjoi has steadily become one of the most revered/reviled brands in skateboarding. Love it or hate it, enjoi brings fun and creativity to skateboarding, blazing a path for lesser beings to imitate. Contrary to message-board belief, this multi-thousand dollar brand runs off the work of just a handful of individuals. enjoi just another skateboard artshow takes a look at selected works from a few of the creative minds behind your new favorite company (no homo):
Winston Tseng lives behind his computer. Officially, he is the “art director” for enjoi, and unofficially he is the lone graphic artist dedicated to spending every waking moment of his life trying to come up with ideas and graphics for enjoi. Less skilled than most, Winston relies heavily on his use of colors to make his graphics “sellable”.
Todd Bratrud is too famous and talented to work for any one company. Fortunately for enjoi he has become a recurring “guest employee”, contributing his signature style graphics to boards, tees, wheels and anything else demanded of him. Having worked for conglomerates such as Teenage Runaway, Burton, Volcom, Nike, Consolidated, Flip and The Skateboard Mag, it’s clear that Todd’s best work has been for enjoi.
Jerry Hsu rides for Bakewish, or was it Deather? Actually Jerry is one of the o.g. pros and has signed a lifetime commitment to enjoi. If he wasn’t so well known for being the Best-Asian-Skater-Ever, he might be more known for his photography. You’ve surely seen his photos featured in cool guy galleries, cool guy websites, cool guy magazines, and cool guy enjoi ads.
