This look #behindtheframe comes from a shoot we did with @autodesksketchbook this Summer.
We spent a few days in Brooklyn, New York with world-class industrial designer @reid.schlegel. We came to talk to Reid about a particularly interesting project he was working on: redesigning the iconic New York City hot dog cart. We spent our first day in Reid’s apartment chatting about his design process, ogling over his sketchbooks, watching him draw and hanging with his adorable cat.
Towards the end of the day, we met up with his friend Adam, who had been helping Reid design a 3D model of his most recent cart design in virtual reality. As magic hour was approaching, Adam mentioned that the rooftop of his building had a great view of the city. We have never been able to turn down a magic hour spot. We quickly headed up a few flights of stairs and came to the view that you see in the first photo.
The #view looks into #Manhattan from the Bed-Stuy neighbourhood of #Brooklyn. The next day, we traipsed up and down Manhattan as Reid did research talking to hot dog vendors and did some sketching around the #Met.
New York is a pretty wild place for a creative. It’s the birthplace of #thehustle and its pace keeps you on your toes. Tag someone who, like New York, never sleeps because they’re too busy grinding hard and making things happen. Tune in tomorrow for another look #behindtheframe.
