Best of Kickstarter: 468 New York Subway Stations and 1 Epic Poster

SUBWAY_08SUBWAY_15SUBWAY_02

Designer Hamish Smyth and the Kickstarter expert, the one they call “The Crowdsourceress”, Alex Daly, are releasing an 11 colour limited edition poster, licensed by the MTA, printed in Italy, and only available through Kickstarter! The poster features all 468 subway stations in New York City drawn in alphabetical order.

You may recall Hamish was one of the designers behind that other wildly successful Kickstarter, the one for the Graphics Standards Manual; they’re using the same Italian printers for this poster.

Alex’s company Vann Alexandra helps projects reach their funding on Kickstarter and boasts a 100% success rate so I’m sure they’ll have no trouble funding this one. *EDIT – this project has already reached it’s funding goal in one day.

Check it out on Kickstarter.

Giraffe’s Eye

Hammerhead Studio in Yokohama, Japan closed in 2014 but this new interactive installation by Lens gives a unique take on what used to be. Shot from above in ultra high resolution video, Giraffe’s Eye allows you to see the daily routines of the artists who inhabited the building with a simple touch of a screen. Really cool idea! See more images and video below.

The First-Ever Booooooom T-Shirt Designed by Wakana Yamazaki (Only Available Until Thursday)

WAKANA-YAMAZAKI-TEE0WAKANA-YAMAZAKI-TEE5

Hello my friends, I’m excited to announce the start of something new! Today we launch our Booooooom Shop which will feature exclusive items from time to time.

We’re kicking things off with a t-shirt designed for us by emerging Japanese illustrator Wakana Yamazaki. We wanted to pick someone who wasn’t very well known (this will be one of the themes of the shop) and someone whose work looks like it came from another planet. Her style is so original – never seen anything like it.

The t-shirt is $25 and only available as a pre-order until Thursday June 4th 11:59 PST. It will never be sold again.

One of our goals is to release limited edition products but also allow for everyone who wants them to have them. In essence these products will be both limited and unlimited. So if you want this piece of history, the first-ever Booooooom Artist Series t-shirt, this is your chance.
