I am Marc Eckō. The guy behind Eckō Unltd and Complex Media, spraypainting Air Force One, and buying Barry Bond’s * ball. AMA!
My name is Marc Eckō. I’m an artist and entrepreneur best known as the guy behind Eckō Unltd. and Complex Media.
Earlier this week, my first book came out: Unlabel: Selling You Without Selling Out. It’s the textbook I wish I had in college. A business book for the creative class. In it I share the lessons I learned in creating authentic personal brands from my experiences with Eckō Unltd and Complex Media. Lessons I learned from dropping out of Rutgers to sell t-shirts, partying with Puff Daddy, partnering with George Lucas, buying Barry Bond’s 756th homerun ball, making (and losing) millions, or spray painting Air Force One. Its all in there. For a little sneak peek, I’ll send the first chapter of the book to any redditor who emails [email protected].
I hope I can answer some of your questions on art, entrepreneurship, fashion, media, or whatever reddit is curious about. I’m here for a couple hours and I’m excited to get to as many questions as I can.
EDIT Thanks guys! This was great. I'm off now, but may circle back later to catch up on a few.
