On January 27th get ready for 21-7 Magazine’s Re-Launch Party. Having met both Elle and A-Li$t in the past I know what to expect from this event: complete and utter chaos – in a good way though. Everything they get themselves involved in turns out dope so I expect nothing less this time around. If you happen to be in the NYC area or are a local it’s definitely something worth hittin’ up. Just tell them Peter sent ya.

Please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about what you do.
My name is Georgios Saliaris and I’m a Designer/Illustrator from Atlanta.
Besides designing and running your clothing line Process, you also run a creative design agency called Epidemik Coalition. What clients have you worked with in the past? How has your knowledge of marketing / branding and design further helped your other endeavours?
My business partner and fellow designer, Larry Luk and I have worked with numerous clients over the past few years. Just to name a few: Nike, Coca-Cola, Rebel Wine Company, Future Digital, Georgia Tech and musical artists like Rehab and Rob Wonder. Both Larry and I went to the same graduate design school so this allowed us to develop our own branding and designs for Process. As far as marketing goes, we develop all our own promotional graphics and handle the website. So you can say we are involved in just about every aspect of the company.
Why and how did you get into marketing / branding and graphic design?
I always knew that I wanted to do something in the creative field but it took me awhile to figure out that it was design that I wanted to focus on. I took a design class in my undergrad and instantly fell in love. Marketing is something we learned as we went along. As an artist, you have to stay relevant by putting yourself out there whether it’s Twitter & Facebook or going to an art show and meeting new people.
Where can we find your brand?
Standard in Atlanta, Black Sheep Skateshop in Charlotte and WEARETHEPROCESS.COM
What are some of your inspirations?
When i’m Designing, I tend to draw my inspiration from old school designers like Paul Rand and Herb Lubalin.
When I’m working on my illustrations, I look at old Byzantine Art, Iconography and Typography.
What’s life like up in Atlanta, as far as music, fashion, nightlife, and popular culture?
Atlanta has really grown culturally in the past few years and I see no end to it anytime soon. The music that comes out of Atlanta is ahead of it’s time. In fashion, there is so much talent in Atl but it usually goes unnoticed because we are not known for that. The nightlife is something you just have to come experience for yourself.
Tell us a little bit about the people involved with your various ventures.
Other than Larry Luk, there is Jorge Menes. He’s a great photographer and he assists us with the photography and the direction of the Process line. There is also Ted Ullrich and he is a industrial and a web designer. We do a lil of everything.
What new upcoming events, projects, or releases are you currently working on?
Currently, we are working on the Spring and Summer releases for the Process line.
What would you say is the most difficult aspects of your line of work?
Dealing with clients. I would rather focus on other things but it’s something you have to do while running your own business.
The fashion and music worlds are often tied together…What music artists out right now are really grabbing your attention?
As of lately, I haven’t been paying much attention to the music world outside of Atlanta. There are many great DJ’s here in Atlanta like Rob Wonder, Klever and Cristo Disco. So whenever they release a new mix, I’ll download that. Can’t wait for the new Big Boi to drop. Free Gucci!!
Thanks for taking the time to speak with us Georgios. Do you have any last words or shout-outs?
The whole Process crew (Larry, Jorge, Ted, Chris), Jared, King Alga, Froso, Cristo Disco, Presto, Franco, Standard, El Bar, StreetLocal, Dreaden, Graveyard Tavern, Dax from SnortThis.com, DJ Megan Foxxx, Esperanza, Fresh.I.Am and last but not least Atlanta Hawks. Sorry if I forgot anyone.
