O Street hires new creative director and launches skateboard designs

Glasgow-based design studio O Street has hired a new creative director, Ed Watt to bolster its team.

O Street's co-founder David Freer added: "We interviewed a lot of great designers, but Ed's proven track record of managing his own agency and his digital and Ping Pong skills made him a perfect choice".

Meanwhile, O Street has launched a new website that includes a TV channel: 'O Tube', a radio stream: 'O fm' and an online shop.

Co-founder Neil Wallace said of the "The design is much cleaner and fresher than our previous site. We wanted to draw more attention to the work, so there is a lot of clean white space and bold colour imagery."

O Street's new online shop sells a range of items designed by the agency, including a series of skateboards. They have collaborated with Glasgow longboarding legend Will Thornton and ShowPony to design the series (longboards and shortys, pictured) and a range of t shirts.
