The most attentive fans have already spotted this logo on the back cover of SND.PE VOL.04 and today we’re very excited to share the news that Nicolas Malinowsky, our beloved friend and artist, solely responsible for every Sound Pellegrino artwork since we launched the label in 2009 has just started a new design studio called ATELIER MALINOWSKY with his wife Sarah!
Read all about them on their website http://www.atelier-malinowsky.com
Of course you already know his work for Sound Pellegrino but Nicolas and Sarah have also collaborated on projects for Domus Magazine, Nike, Salomon, Pernod-Ricard, Isakin and Fendi…
Speaking of which, here’s a massive surprise: Two years ago, Nicolas has produced a track entirely made of skateboarding sounds, from a video part he directed and chopped in Ableton. The result was an incredible track and video simply called “Skateboarder” released on SND.PE VOL.01 and noticed by many, including The Berrics. But it also made a great impression on creatives, including Fendi who commissioned Malinowsky to give a similar treatment to their iconic handbag the 3Baguette. Once again, all sounds are produced with the bag itself, from the leather to the metal closure and the strap! And a very slick video reinterprets Nicolas’ performance:
Yes, this really happened.
Plus, true story: all sounds have been recorded with the same portable equipment we’ve been using to do the Sound Pellegrino podcast for years
They also have designed a capsule collection with the Barbès-based brand ISAKIN, using African fabrics purchased on the legendary Parisian boulevard, cut diagonally and applied over the logo for the brand to embrace and honour the neighbourhood’s fashion legacy.

And finally, here’s an in-depth interview with Nicolas in the Danish magazine Bitchslap, where he talks about his multiple projects, the launch of Atelier Malinowsky, his collaboration with Sound Pellegrino and how music and skateboarding have always connected his activities together.
