A Get Some Sleep popup is a really special experience. I hope that doesn’t sound too plain or lazy, but really it is. This is now the third GSS popup I’ve help run, and in that time I’ve watched the brand grow a lot. Somehow, the popups bring a special sort of magic that inspires congregation of this community from around the country.
A few years ago I flew to New York on a shoe string budget and around 8 of us slummed it in a double bed hotel room. Back then, we came from all over to be there. Denver, Pittsburgh, LA, North Carolina, Calgary, etc the list goes on.
Hey everyone! I'm Grant, an LA based artist and long time friend of GSS. Welcome to the start of a new blog series for the website that will be published in addition to the Love Letter every week. Get Some Sleep is so special to me, and I'm excited to share the brand's past, present, and future evolution with all of you here. We'll be going through the daily minutia and interesting projects that happen every day in the operation of the brand. This week I'll be walking you all through a convoluted but incredibly fun trip we all took to...
Who is Get Some Sleep?
Get Some Sleep is a 5 person team. I do the designing and post on the socials. Dylan is second in command and does a lot of behind the scenes stuff, like prepping the site or making sure a pop ups go smoothly but generally does an uncountable number of things that would be impossible to list off. He is always down to bring any kooky vision i have to fruition. if Get Some Sleep is a machine he is the oil that keeps it running smoothly. Going down the chain we have Jossue, Jossue is kind of the muscle of the group he is super reliable and can always be counted on to do anything labor intensive like, shipping or installing a new tv at the shop he is our handyman but is also an artist in his own way. Then we have Alex who is our dedicated customer support person, if you reach out to the support email or reach out via the website or a DM he will take care of you he also does modeling for us whenever applicable. Our newest member is Grant who will help organize the newsletter and blog and create behind the scenes content for us. Lastly there's all of you guys who support and care about the brand without you guys we would be nothing.
