Jan. 9, 2013 (Salt Lake City, Utah and Leucadia, Calif.) – Today, GoldCoast and Hidden Notice premiere their video, “California Design, Utah Engineering,” which documents the day-to-day lives of GoldCoast’s Product Developer, Brock Harris and Art Director, Dustin Ortiz to showcase how the two opposites find their inspiration within their surroundings. Watch this video for a deeper look into the mash up of opposites that come together to create GoldCoast’s truly unique product: https://vimeo.com/57074015.
As you soak up the warm California sun and step into Dustin’s Encinitas home, you’ll find paintings and photographs from friends and travels, stacks of books and magazines, plants and gem stones he’s collected from all over the world neatly organized. These interesting things add an artistic vibe while providing a tranquil escape that allows Dustin to peacefully create GoldCoast designs inspired by the sunny beaches of California he surfs, the mountains he snowboards and his travels.
Nestled in Salt Lake City right in the middle of Utah’s snowy mountains, Brock’s place is quite the opposite. The minute you step inside, you’ll find that there is no clutter as he prefers to keep the décor basic. His home is also filled with sounds of children laughing and playing. He is completely focused on developing new skateboard shapes that will be a catalyst to something new.
“We enjoyed working with the guys at Hidden Notice to tell the GoldCoast story. The premise for GoldCoast’s California design and Utah engineering was created from this amazing contrast of these two inspirational places. We strive to creatively mesh the two lifestyles into our products,” said Dustin Ortiz, GoldCoast art director.
“Working with the crew at GoldCoast is a privilege and a no brainer for us. They represent the entrepreneurial spirit of taking your passion and turning that into your career,” said Bill Keller, founder of Hidden Notice. “They are authentic, honest, innovative and unique in their approach to this segment of the skate market. GoldCoast is doing what they do for all the right reasons, and to be able to team up with them on this project was both fun, inspiring, and one more reason why we love what we get to do!”
