When Mac Premo was asked by the World Wildlife Fund to make art out of repurposed material, he took the challenge a step further. Together with teh carpenter Don Sanford, they worked to fashion skateboards out of six-gallon buckets pulled from dumpsters. The project turned into a campaign that now gives the skateboards to kids in Los Angeles and New York.
Back in 2010, Chris Brigham was working as a graphic designer. But more and more, he found he wanted to break out of the two-dimensional world and create things with his hands. Things that both had a purpose and were beautiful. He started building in his garage, turning it into a wood shop. A good designer is a good designer, no matter the medium. With that, Knife & Saw was born.
