By Armon Hayes

As of late, Jason Lee held a birthday celebration in NYC at the Bryant Park Hotel. His second stop along his birthday tour set to wrap in Miami at LIV. He’s the Founder/CEO of Hollywood Unlocked and its podcast “Uncensored” which is a joint venture with Premiere Network, launching the outlet into syndication within 50 markets. Also, this is in conjunction with iHeart radio and urban contemporary radio stations worldwide. 

360 Magazine had access to the exclusive event. The dimly lit venue set the tone for Lee to take center stage for his birthday speech. Making it clear, he has no plans on playing it safe and “looking forward to getting punched in the face.” Lee was surrounded by love from supporters and close friends like Cardi B. and Wendy Williams.

Jarren Frame

New York artist, Jarren Frame, has made a mark in the art scene and is currently on display at world-renowned hotels and celeb hotspots such as Socialista, Sixty Hotel Soho, Mamo, Casa Malca, The Bowery Hotel, and Faena, alongside Damien Hirst’s iconic Golden Mammoth.  

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990, Frame was inspired to step into the art world as a child from his grandfather, Philip Frame — a Sunday painter and founder of Frame Textiles Group (one time the largest blanket manufacturing business in the world). Philip would teach his grandson to paint flowers on weekends, igniting a spark leading him to pursue art full-time.

In October 2017, Frame displayed a series of James Bond-inspired works known as “The Playboy Paintings” during his first solo exhibition alongside photographer Peter Cary Peterson at The SIXTY SoHo Hotel. Following its success, he collaborated with Puerto Rican artist Jorge Zeno on “Zeno Gravity” on another Bond-inspired piece.

A rotating selection of artworks from his first collection titled “Bond, James Bond,” debuted in December 2017 at 77 Greene Street in New York. The series of 33 acrylic-on-wood pieces featured the recontextualization of vintage James Bond imagery over modern-day landscapes. The idea was born during a trip to Sardinia, where the 1977 classic film The Spy Who Loved Me was shot. ‘‘’Bond, James Bond’ was created on such an impulse. What I sought to do with those paintings was neutralize some of the shame around sex and masculinity. That’s really what those paintings are about: Fun, sex and champagne.”All 33 pieces sold out within a year, attracting a number of bold-face name buyers such as Chris Burch, Steve Wynn, Barron Hilton, former United States Secretary of Commerce Peter George Peterson, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers, and hoteliers including Jason Pomeranc andJason Strauss.

Frame’s current collection, “Colors,” is another series of 33 paintings – this time acrylic-on-canvas and was inspired by the meaning we assign to colors and is meant to confront the viewer with the enormous diversity of choice we have. “‘Colors’ are a way of bottling up excitement and happiness that provide the power to inspire and uplift in addition to capturing and championing the spirit of individuality.”  The series premiered, for a limited-time at Socialista and Surf Lodge in July 2019.

Printful

When Printful launched its print-on-demand/drop-shipping business in 2013, most competitors were traditional bulk-printing companies that weren’t built for one-off fulfillment of t-shirts and other products. Today, thanks to the e-commerce explosion and a savvy technology-focused business strategy, Printful is the largest company of its kind with three fulfillment centers in the U.S. and headquarters in Riga, Latvia and Charlotte, NC, a fourth that recently opened in Mexico, 500 employees, dozens of product options, and 800,000+ customers around the globe from artists and cause marketers to Twitter-preneurs like WeRateDogs that use merchandise to monetize their ventures.  

 

  • The company was founded by two young Latvians who couldn’t find an acceptable print-on-demand drop-shipping partner for a business they ran selling posters, clothing and other items with motivational quotes for entrepreneurs. 
  • It has doubled revenues every year since inception, fulfilled more than 10 million orders generating over $540 million for customers, and is still self-funded.
  • Features like 14 integrated e-commerce platforms (more than any competitor), API connectivity, and a mockup generator that creates store-ready product images help fuel business.
  • One-third of customers surveyed say their e-commerce storefront is a full-time gig, and three-quarters of the rest say they’re aiming to get there.

Kevin Takarada Opens Second MakiMaki

A son of a successful restauranteur, Kevin Takarada hardly saw his father who worked long nights and weekends operating his many restaurants in South Beach Miami, including the first and now oldest sushi bar. Yearning for a different lifestyle, Kevin initially pursued an entirely unrelated career – one that began in Engineering and later involved a decade at a top-level wall street bank. 

However, as Kevin remained involved in the family business, the restaurant industry remained close to his heart.  Ever observant of the evolving quick service restaurant scene in Midtown Manhattan, Kevin came to realize that for the many fast-casual lunch options there was an utter lack of quality and affordable sushi.  Kevin saw an opportunity for a new fast-casual restaurant concept that would combine quality sushi, reachable prices and quick service. 

Thus, informed by his professional experiences in engineering and finance, Kevin developed a concept of MakiMaki that offered custom-made, high-quality sushi rolls made in a contemporary fast-casual style at reasonable prices.  By re-engineering the entire process of making Japanese sushi rolls and introducing automation, MakiMaki is able to increase productivity, reduce labor costs, improve quality of fish and ultimately make great quality sushi at quick speed and affordable price. The first MakiMaki opened in June 2017.  The second location is slated to open in June 2019.
