Stevie G / RDQLUS CREATIVE  aka RDQLUS CREATIVE; creative consultant/designer/author + so much more!

http://rdqlus.com/

A new collaboration and new venture may be coming to reality! Again, that seemingly childish hobby became a collection that became attached to my actual profession. "Design one thing… design everything." (Vignelli) Stay posted…

Modern take on a chukka for golfers with a bit more street in their style. Lugged outsole for traction on course and regular street wear. Protective patent toe-cap for long walks around carts, clubs and the rough. Injection molded midsole offers cushion and stability. Chukka upper to finish off the look with pedigree. Maybe I'll enter the @Pensole #WorldSneakerChampionship next year? ;-)

Some things are as deep as DNA. Our particles are a history of us. I grew up with a supreme love of music, sound and dancing. A b-boy and dancer most of my adolescent and teen life—which explains a large part of my athleticism. There is nothing more amazing that seeing proof of this; no one taught her how… she just knows that it's right to do it. Ad'astra Mireille is my tiny dancer! ❤ #dadlife #dadsydaughtertime #tinydancer

Choppin' it up with my guy, G.B. always brings real and enlightened conversation to the surface. Author, mentor, advisor—he's doing some amazing things and allows me space to consult with him on how to elevate his offerings. He's setting up his launch events from his new book and it's an exciting ride. I personally ride that wave of elevation as well. So RDQLUS!

I don't drink, and I don't do amateur hour, so I'll just don some kelly green and drop tell you a story; not long before he passed, I was sitting at an IHOP having some breakfast and I got on the horn to my grandfather to check in on him. I asked him about the rumor that we had Irish blood and it seemed like he had been waiting my whole life for me to ask. He excitedly says to me, "Well, yes! We are actually Scots-Irish—mostly Scot but mixed and mingled along the way… your last name is your own. Want me to tell you about it?!?" He gave me the entire verbal history while I sat there on the phone, grinning so big. My skin would say the history of forced violent migration, but a significant portion of my blood tells a very interesting story of Scots-Irish immigrants who busted their asses to be here. So for the small bit of Irish that piggy-backs on the proud Scottish part of my blood, I don this green for a people who were once bottom of an awful totem pole—and now the 3rd largest nation in the world loses its damn mind to be you for one day. #slainte #happystpatricksday #immigrants
PS: oh, and yeah… my crushed-velvet Atmos x Reebok Pump Court Victory(s) are the pimp's limp!!!!

If I can't tell you your business, then you can't tell me what makes me happy… You tell me to become strong and powerful, only to then tell me I am irredeemably corruptible for having achieved an exercisable influence… You tell me my entire life to hustle and achieve, go get that money, and as such deem me for being intrinsically evil simply because? Spare me your the catchphrase philosophy. How about this; don't be a shit person to begin with and you stand a chance of not doing shit things when you find yourself with access, opportunity and means. "You can try to change, that's just the top layer… you are who you was 'fore you got here." -Jay-Z. #itsbeenalongday

Honored. Blessed. Reminded. Humbled. Proud. 75 North's "Partner Spotlight" this month is on me & RDQLUS CREATIVE. I grew up half a block from the epicenter of the amazing work 75N is doing, so to be a partner doing brand development & design for so many of their projects is beyond amazing. Thank you to Othello, Cydney and all of 75 North, JoAnna LeFlore for the great writing and Davie Grams for the stunning photo. Full story link at rdqlus.com.

Now working on something very big on the horizon for a client, and new business ownership stake for RDQLUS. It's really real in the field! My "foolish" hobby & collection continues to become business.

Sometimes, I roll past just to make myself feel better. Four years ago, my design & creative consultancy used to be based here, inside the turn-of-the-century beauty that is The New BLK HQ. The boys have never taken down my window logo so I can always find my way back someday. Holler when my space opens back up, fellas!
