URBAN LIST presents notable names from the urban art scene, discussing the influence of urban culture, style, art and design on the way we dress and interact with the built and decorated environment.
Marcus Crook, Co-Founder HoMie
Simon Wood aka ‘Woody’, Director Sneaker Freaker
Designer, author, brand historian, and professional sneaker aficionado, Simon ‘Woody’ Wood founded Sneaker Freaker magazine in 2002 as a lark to get free shoes. 3000 free copies were given away in Melbourne. Today, those first editions sell for hundreds of dollars. Having collaborated with Nike, Bearbrick, New Balance, ASICS, Montana Paint, Saucony, Diadora, Le Coq Sportif, Lacoste, AIAIAI, Adidas and PUMA, Woody’s eye is legendary. In 2019, Woody unveiled The Ultimate Sneaker Book; already regarded as the definitive source of sneaker knowledge and more than worthy of its ambitious title.
Nicky Rowsell, Director And Now Creative
Nicky Rowsell is a creative brand marketer with over 20 years-experience in creating, building and re-invigorating brands – specializing in fashion, lifestyle, board sports, music and entertainment. Nicky’s career has seen her work most recently as the Head of Marketing at Levi Strauss & Co. where she created the largest music prize in both Australia and New Zealand, as well as setting up Australia’s first mental health helpline for the music industry and its workers. Pre Levi’s, Nicky was Creative Director at Rip Curl, but has had a string of other exciting roles and career highlights to date – including taking out the Mercedes Benz Start Up Award in 2005 for Best New Design Talent after founding leading fashion swimwear brand – Flamingo Sands and taking it to an international market with great success. Nicky is recognised as a leader in defining the future of marketing with the integration of ‘art’ (creative, brand, culture) and ‘science’ (data and media).
Eddie Zammit, Director T-world
Eddie Zammit has worn the most universally popular item of clothing everyday – the T-shirt. He has collected over 9,000 of them the last two decades. His obsession led to T-world and since then, Zammit has travelled far and wide using art direction and curation as a way to document the T-shirt culture he loves.
