.net: What does BKWLD stand for?
RV: In 2000, when my then-bandmate and I talked about starting a company, his first idea for a name was “Bukwild”. We both immediately lit up. To us, being rebellious 20-year-olds, Bukwild meant no rules. And if there were any, they were ours: we were going to do it our way. However, after a couple of years in business, and countless “What are you guys, a porn shop?” jokes, our then creative director Scott Hansen (now ISO50) had the brilliant idea of taking out the vowels to create a fictitious acronym. I thought maybe we’d make up some last names to put on the door – Berkowitz, Klein, Woods & Davis. Ironically, now that we have close to a decade under our belts, I’m growing less and less concerned with ‘being taken seriously’ via our name. It’s our name, damn it; if it’s too bad'rap'rock-song for you, go fly a kite…
