During the construction of Ultraviolet Studios we spent a moderate amount of time searching the web for artists from Ogden. We were looking for the game-changing professionals that elevate the culture and community of a place. We were looking for conversations, connections, and inspirations. Enter our friend Cam McLeod. I found him on Instagram and after some internet back-and-forth Cam and his very likable wife Kelly stopped at Ultraviolet for a tour. The space was very unfinished but Kelly and Cam wasted no time welcoming us, congratulating our efforts, and brainstorming how Ultraviolet can support Ogden’s vibrant culture as it supports Ultraviolet. Typical of Cam’s generosity, he shared the contact information for his friends Doug and Lori from Space Solutions Custom Carpentry. Space Solutions makes apple boxes. Yes, a local carpenter makes a staple studio prop. This sharing, showing up, listening, cheerleading local vibe? This is Ogden through and through.
Doug from was excited to learn more about Ultraviolet and a few days later we walked our in-progress space, talking apple boxes. The week we opened, Space Solutions gifted Ultraviolet a standard set of apple boxes for our guests to use. This generosity! Who are these people? They are Lori and Doug.
Now, let’s talk apple boxes for a moment. First of all, I got very comfortable with the versatile uses of apple boxes while working from Justin Hackworth’s studio in Provo. And while the versatility was inherent in this timeless product, the Matthews brand presented significant flaws in the branding and design. That enormous eyesore MATTHEWS logo was always a nightmare to photoshop out of images and they were a little too light (weight) for my liking- not ideal elements for a product that is so widely used.
Enter Space Solutions apple boxes. Expertly constructed, these boxes provide heft, style and durability. The sleek, subtle logo is only shown on one small corner of the box. Doug and Lori recently brought over a black apple box for us to try out. Its textured coating can wipe clean bringing a modern, unexpected element to the studio. We love everything Space Solutions creates and we are so proud to have them as personal and professional friends.
If you are interested in adding apple boxes to your studio rental you can add the entire set for $5 at check-out.
