Shed Labs started a few years ago when Wellington Payne and Robbie Cobb were hiking in Panthertown Valley, a trip they still take a few times a year with a close group of guys. Robbie and Wellington knew each other from college and were friendly but had never spent an extended amount of time together. On the trail, a person has plenty of time talk about things they like or don’t like, so in this trek Robbie and Wellington figured out that they wanted a lot of the same things — to work with their friends, make art in a style and medium they enjoyed, do work for good people and to just get better. So on the side of little greenback mountain Shed Labs was born.
Wellington, fresh out of school, was looking for a job and found himself in a Greenville agency that had a lot of promise. Robbie had been around town working in various design shops and saw an opportunity to work along side Wellington. This gave the duo the chance to hone their skills together, figure out each others strengths and weaknesses and push each other to do better work.
From the get-go posters were the top priority. They wanted to print gigposters. All the time. From a shed in Robbie’s backyard they got to work building their own exposure unit, buying a few screens, borrowing squeegees and even receiving a few hand-me-downs from a local tshirt shop. The struggle was not the equipment but the process of figuring out the printing process. Through multiple failed exsposures, lots of PBR and copious amounts of cussing Shed Labs finally started to get its footing.
In 2010 Shed had picked up speed and between Wellington working a day job and printing at his house at night and Robbie working a day job, teaching web design at Anderson University and helping Wellington print the two found themselves with no time to look for new work or see to the business side of things.
Shed had/has no intention of being a big shop with 40 or even 10 people for that matter. The goal was always to do work that suited Robbie and Wellington, but they needed to find somebody who had that same passion but goals of their own that Robbie and Wellington could also facilitate.
Entering stage right, Beau, former roommate of Robbie and long time friend to both members of Shed Labs had been working for his dad’s company for a few years and had plenty of client side experience. Sure it wasn’t exactly design, but Beau had the heart to do the job and turns out he’s really good at it. Beau also brought a creative energy to the group that opened up door to even more opportunities.
Shed Labs collectively have had the opportunity to work clients such as The Civil Wars, Sufjan Stevens, MeWithoutYou, MuteMath, Mike Birbiglia and many others. Over the past couple of years the guys have developed a rule book. Don’t get the wrong idea, Shed Labs doesn’t have a lot of rules but the most important one is “Work with your hands and use your noggin”.
