Nick Larsen, owner of Gate Eight, the jump-friendly producer of tees, hoodies, beanies, and sweats, has previously worked as a design and production manager for a design consultancy managing, amongst other brands, the Clarks Shoes contract which involved all international shop-fitting, PoS, and exhibition design and manufacture. He was also the designer of Pashley's TV logo. He already has a select bunch of bike trade clients but believes he has capacity for more..
Gate Eight expands PR and marketing offering
"Whilst the casual clothing side of Gate Eight continues to thrive, I have decided to expand the marketing and design parts of the business," said Larson.
Current Gate Eight clients currently include Projects Distribution’s Osiris shoes, Hotwheel’s GT, and Switzerland Tourism.
Russell Merry of Hotwheels is pleased with the work Larson has done to date:
"Nick has worked with us for a little over one year. The results speak for themselves, pages and pages of high quality coverage in the right magazines that has generated new business."
Gate Eight sponsored riders grace the pages – and sometimes the covers – of bike mags such as MBUK.
