I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is summer is nearly gone, it’s painful to even say it. But the good news is I’ve got a giveaway from my friends at Northern Sun that’s perfect for the fall season.
I’ve got a men’s Aput Jacket and a women’s Aga Jacket to give away! Both are water resistant and premium down filled, and as promised this one’s open to everyone. If you’d like to snag either jacket, leave a comment below describing the first adventure you’ll go on.
We’ll pick two winners September 13th.
Urbanears hooked me up with a pair of their newly launched RePlattan series of headphones. These headphones are all made of unused parts from previous seasons instead of letting them go to waste!
The coolest part is they’ve built in a personal ID and GPS coordinates that cover 5 square meters of rainforest. As soon as you purchase a pair of headphones that specific area of rainforest is protected.
They estimate that 500 ants, 10 flowers, 5 spiders and 2 butterflies live in each of those little squares, maybe even a bird, or a tree, or a frog, or a tree frog, or even a bird frog (they never said this).
I also got a little adapter called a Slussen, which lets you dj from your iPhone (the video below explains it better).
So now I get to giveaway one of each to one of you as well! Leave a comment below with the first song you’d listen to. I’ll pick a winner next Friday, have a great weekend.
I often check Julien Berthier’s website hoping to find new work. I didn’t find any today, so I’m posting more of his old work. This piece is the result of Berthier drawing Gerrit Rietveld’s famous “Red and Blue Chair”, using his left hand. A carpenter was given the drawing and instructed to produce five identical chairs.
Justin Longoz wants everyone to know Vancouver is shaped like a giant thumbs up (it actually is). He made these shirts to raise money for Megaphone Magazine, Vancouver’s non-profit street paper based in the Downtown Eastside. Megaphone is sold on the street by homeless and low-income Vancouverites, giving them a voice and an economic opportunity. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the magazine.
Justin has given me two t-shirts to give away! Leave a comment below and tell me which part of the city is the best! I’ll pick a winner on Friday! You should also buy a shirt to support the cause, and if you win one give it to a friend!
Jessica Walsh, of Sagmeister & Walsh, and designer Tim Goodman just launched a fun project called “40 Days of Dating”. The pair dated each other for 40 days, answered a questionaire each day, went to a therapist once a week, and even held hands for 8 hrs straight.
Now they’re presenting their romantic journey, one day at a time, on their website. They’ve called upon friends like Mario Hugo, Christoph Niemann, Siggi Eggertson, Jessica Hische, and Keetra Dean Dixon, to lend their graphic talents to the project in the form of typographic illustrations for each update.
I’m already really into this and it’s only on Day 3! Watch a couple of their videos below!
I posted some of Anthony Gerace’s photos a little while ago (see here) and he emailed me the other night to say he got some work with The Guardian because of it.
I’ve posted this with his permission because I feel like all of us trying to live off our passions are in this together. We’re all struggling together so we should celebrate our successes together too.
Way to go Anthony!
