ANTI-DESIGN FESTIVAL ///

It’s about time someone decided to shake things up a bit and we’re planing on doing our part to help out in any way we can. Read the info below and share with friends, colleagues, collaborators, professors, students, etc., especially those in...

NIKE FOOTBALL ///

This has been everywhere and if you’ve been avoiding it you should just quit it and watch. The new spot for Nike Football (yes, of course it’s soccer, but you knew that already didn’t you) by W+K Amsterdam is inspiring, entertaining and best of all, reminds us why the world loves this game so much....

MUSICA MONDAYS: J. Cole, Here We Go Magic, Kanye West ///

J. Cole It would seem that this Jay-Z character knows a thing or two about music. This makes his choice of J. Cole to be the first artist to be signed to Jay’s Roc Nation label sort of a big deal. The refreshing thing about J. Cole’s music is that, unlike most of his contemporaries,...

DAN STILES ///

Portland is the new Brooklyn, or something like that. I say this because I can’t stop coming across a ridiculous amount of talented work from designers and artists based there. Dan Stiles is one more to add to the list. Amazing posters? Check. Amazing illustration work? Check. Silkscreened goodness? Check. Dan’s got a lot more...

MUSICA MONDAYS: Ratatat, Janelle Monáe, Big K.R.I.T. ///

Ratatat At this point everyone has listened to Ratatat, whether they knew it or not. The electronic dance duo has essentially permeated all media that music is relevant too and provided a head-bobbing soundtrack. They return again with another clean execution of their brand of electro on LP4, being released in June. In the interim...

MUSICA MONDAYS: The National, Future Islands, The New Pornographers ///

The National If you’re of an age where albums like Saves the Day’s Stay What You Are exemplified what it was like to be 16 years old, then you’re now of an age where The Nationals Boxer exemplified what it’s like to be a directionless 20-something. Now, they’ve returned after a few years away from...

DJ SHADOW & CUT CHEMIST ///

Via KN: “Back in 2001 DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist got together for a little session/album where they only spun 45′s, calling the end result Product Placement.” This video is so good I had to post it after seeing Bobby had it up at Kitsune Noir. Thanks to Karl who also gave me a heads...

JÓNSI TOUR SET DESIGN ///

I’m very jealous of my friends who already have tickets to a Jónsi show in the area, but this made things even worse. Fifty Nine Productions shares what they’ve got in store for the set design and performance aspects of Jónsi’s new tour.

JAY WEST x DECATUR DAN ///

Shot by Good folk #15 Decatur Dan , Jay West recently had a private listening session for his new project titled, Drugs + Candy. This project has been in the works for some time now and should prove to be worth the wait. I (msenna) was brought on to produce the art work for the...
