Trucker hats and superyachts

Working for TeamDesign (now Methodologie) under art director and mentor Gary LaComa, I had the opportunity to design for Seattle-based Delta Marine, maker of fiberglass superyachts (yachts over 148 feet). During the course of the project, which included extensive photography, we got to follow the construction of one of these mammoth boats and were on hand to photograph the christening. It was a great experience, though I found it curious that the new owner of a $50 million-dollar boat would wear a polyester trucker’s hat to the launch ceremony. I guess I was expecting Judge Smails from the movie Caddyshack.
