Michigan-native Rick Williams is owner of Burn Rubber, Detroit's finest sneaker boutique. He's also the founder of The Distinct Life, a creative agency specializing in brand development. Through both enterprises, Williams has brought Detroit flare to an array of creative endeavours including (but of course not limited to) a camouflage wrap collaboration with AGI in commemoration of the 2013 Detroit International Auto Show. While the project was Williams' first foray into automotive design, it didn't mark the beginning of his love affair with cars. No, no. This guy knows his local industry inside out.
Naturally, we hit him up to talk cars and share his 10 favorite Chevrolets of all time. Here's what he had to say:
For as far back as I can remember I have always been surrounded and influenced by the General Motors culture. With my grandfather, mother, and uncle all being employed by GM, the company has always been in my life. I have grown to have a special affinity for the company and its brands. This week I will be assisting Chevrolet as they hold the “Chevy Urban Design” event this Wednesday, May 8th. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be able to contribute to the company in this capacity.
