Our very own Ross Bruggink spent this last weekend brushing elbows and sipping martinis with some of highbrow culture’s biggest of big shots. Long story short, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s new anti-sex trafficking foundation, DNA, partnering with clothing retailer Steven Alan and Threadless, created a contest to find a shirt design that truly encompassed the organization and its values and convictions. The winning designer would be flown out for a five-star weekend in NYC, including a room in the palatial Tribeca Grand Hotel, and a spot on the guest list for Ashton and Demi’s red carpet DNA launch party.
Well, as I’m sure you’ve deduced by now, Ross won. It was quite surreal to google search Ashton Kutcher (a daily activity for us) and see him strutting down the red carpet donning Ross’s shirt.
While at the party, Ross really worked his Dutch charm and handed out a bevy of Studio MPLS business cards. Needless to say, we’re all really looking forward to becoming the design studio of A-list celebrities. Feel free to call us whenever your next project comes up, Snooki.
