Obey Giant Money

I met up with my friend Eric tonight at the Brodeo show at the New Image Art Gallery. The show was really good, and I took a lot of pictures, but that’s for tomorrow.
Shepard Fairey, the creator of Obey Giant, was hanging out and socializing, he seemed like a nice enough guy. He was also giving away Obey Money! I don’t think these are good for anything in particular, but how fucking rad are they?!? Eric was able to grab me one that fell on the ground and I was sooooo grateful for it.
Shepard continues to impress me, I must admit… sick ass idea.

Design + Politics

Design + Politics

+ Al Gore for President by William Drenttel

I guess I just want to first off say, that this isn’t a blog about strictly politics, or who’s better than who, or that Al Gore should run for president. What this is about, is if and where politics and design should interact. The replies to the article above are really very interesting, and it surprises me that a lot of people are against the idea of mixing the two, or that they can’t relate.
In my opinion, politics are a part of our everyday lives, so why shouldn’t politics come into play when designing anything?
Go read the article and leave your comments!

P.S. I kind of hope Gore decides to run. We need someone who’s concerned for this country (not to mention the rest of the world), not a cowboy with his guns blazing looking for “them”.

Method Dish Soap

Method Dish Soap

My co-worker Becca went shopping today and came back with some of the Method Dish Soap in the picture above.
Seriously, this should be considered design porn! Look how perfect the form is! I hope there are I.D. kids out their wetting their nappys over this. It’s like a frigging sculpture, except wait, it sits next to the sink and gets your dishes nice and clean. Nice work again, Method.

I’ve been listening to Husky Rescue’s new album, Ghost Is Not Real, a lot lately, they’re basically the new fangled Cardigans (check out the record and the lead singer for proof!).
But what really got my attention was the illustrations on the album! Done by the amazing Kustaa Saksi, a 29 year old designer/illustrator from Finland. The best way I can describe her is like a Japanese schooled Camille Rose Garcia that hangs out with Friends With You a lot… a.k.a. really damn good.

Adrian Johnson is a UK based illustrator, and makes the cooooooolest graphics! I love his colors and textures so much. Every one of his pieces is soooo good. He even has a couple of really cute animations with mice burping and knights being crushed by dragons.
It seems that he hasn’t updated his site since 2005, which is a shame, I would love to see what he’s doing now!
