MUSICA MONDAYS: Big Boi, Pernice Brothers, MNDR ///

Big Boi It seems to be a growing trend recently that much of the better hip hop coming out is coming form the people who were help that titles ten, fifteen years ago as well. Much like Raekwon’s killer album last year, Big Boi doesn’t break any new ground with his new single “Shutterbug.” He...

TRUTH DESIGN ///

Truth Design is a UK design studio/consultancy. They’ve created a great body of work. I especially like the invitation for the Reebok Pump relaunch event, shown above. Milton Glaser recently agreed to design a #4 that the studio will use to create posters in celebration of their 4 year anniversary. I’m jealous.

NIKE FOOTBALL ///

This has been everywhere and if you’ve been avoiding it you should just quit it and watch.
