Philadelphia's Quaker City Mercantile, in a licensing deal with Converse, has created four Chuck Taylor designs under Quaker City Mercantile's Sailor Jerry fashion label.
"Pop Culturalist as CEO"
I don't know how someone as irreverent as Steven Grasse of Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) got past my radar, but he did. Until now. Now, I know there is at least one kook running a major agency today. There may be hope for our kind yet.
"Kind Comments from the Vulture"
It would seem that Protozoic has gotten a bit of press and been blessed with some kind comments from a site known as the Vulture.
Click here to read what they say. Their comments are down at the bottom of the page.
In addition to being kinda-of-local (they work out of Philly), they run a pretty cool site, Quaker City Mercantile, that marries creativity with marketing savy. Be sure to check them out.
And lest you think all of this cleavage-dotage is the product of a dirty mind, let's just say that Cashman and her ilk are not above flaunting their own assets. The invite to the firm's Christmas party, a remake of a Sex and the City promotional shot, featured Cashman and her glossy-lipped Associates vamping in low-cut evening dresses. "It was soooo cheesy," groans Steven Grasse, the bald creator of Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) and mastermind auteur behind the Bikini Bandits movies.

"Film Filled Week"
This week began with work on the new Bikini Bandits film. It was a crazy and ambitious scene to shoot in one day but we pulled it off. We were shooting on location at g-mart. and Steven Grasse (owner of g-mart, Bikini Bandits and Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) etc) was on set for awhile checking out his latest investment. It was great to finally meet him! Friends at Backseat Conceptions brought me on board for this busy day and I can't wait to hopefully get them involved with our next feature when the script is ready.
I found some pretty creative ideas for Smart Car from Quaker City Mercantile. Shows these great "worlds" Smart Car could live in. http://www.Quaker City Mercantileworldwide.com/case_smart.htm Can't wait for the launch of these cars,they look so different! I wonder if any of Quaker City Mercantile's ideas will come to play. I'm also curious about any other agency who worked on this or any who will...
