Llega el número cuarenta y dos de Staf, con un buen montón de cosas molonas pa echar un ratillo de lectura. Y amigos, en esta ocasión, el refrán de más vale tarde que nunca, nos viene que ni pintado. Después de unos meses de intensa lucha y espera por entrevistar al gran Thomas Campbell, el director de cine, fotógrafo, pintor, etc.… con sede en California, nos deleita con la entrevista deseada y la portada que siempre habíamos soñado. También mucha música en Staf para este invierno, entrevistas con John Fry de Ardent Studios y Don Fury, uno de los abuelos más queridos de la escena musical independiente de Nueva York. Y los artistas Geoff McFetridge (Beautiful Losers, Donde Viven Los Monstruos…) y Yong-Ki Chang nos hablan de su nueva marca de monopatines Solitary Arts. No le perdáis la pista porque son algo así como los morentianos del patin, sin parar de investigar e innovar, creando tablas, ruedas, ejes… y sin dejar de echar la vista atrás hacia lo clásico. Indispensable. Todo eso y mucho mas en la edición más fina de Staf desde aquel primer numero que sacamos con el nuevo formato. ¿os acordáis de Jason Lee y Chris Pastras contándonos la vuelta de Stereo, con una portada de los siempre geniales Matt Irving y Jeremy Fish? (Podéis verlo aquí). Algo nos dice que la historia se vuelve a repetir. En fin, que ustedes los disfruten. Y en abril más.
Win up to $2750 in a design competion against the likes of Pete Harrison (UK), Rik Oostenbroek (NL) and Mike Campau (US).
A new lifestyle brand from Finland called UU Theory gathered ten inspiring artists around the world into a friendly competition and promised to pitch in a competing entry themselves. In addition they will select 40 challengers from an open challenge to compete in the final. The task is quite free – besides the format (Horizontal A4 300dpi), the only limitation is that you have to somehow include the brand’s logo in your creation. To make the competition more memorable, all works of the 51 finalists will be compiled into a book.
Greetings. I am an illustrator and designer located in Charlotte, NC, USA and have had the privilege of working with a number of great clients/people over the past couple of years. I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to this site and share some my work past and present.
A beautiful collaboration between oxidizzy and Veckr project. I like using a minimalist color in each artwork. Basicly black and white, and perhaps a little extra color. I use some of my vector element in this illustration.
Last weeks module wednesday for the On Ramp program was at MODA3 in downtown Milwaukee. An awesome experience for everyone involved, learning what’s behind the scenes in a shop such as MODA3. We went through the history of the shop from the dudes that get together and formed to the brick and mortar that we were standing in. And we talked about the brands that were on the shelves and the process involved in choosing and carrying a brand. This was especially helpful for the kids of On Ramp, for 2 reasons. One, knowing that all brands start out just like they are. Two, that everything in the store has a designer/artist that conceptualized it or created it (this, i think, is the most vital bit of info for them to hear, as an artist/designer myself i didn’t really realize until i was in college that someone had a creative hand in all we see). Moda3 does carry local designers and are all about participating and sponsoring,cool events locally.
I was also able to do some shameless promoting for the On Ramp tee’s we have available, bringing them as samples for the kids to see as well as for Moda3 to view as well. The samples were printed and supplied by Kindred Clothiers, the founders of the Kindred Market.
This turned out to be a keynote module Wednesday for the On Ramp kids and we can’t thank Moda3 and it’s employees enough for their help. If you’re a retail/lifestyle shop or just an individual that is interested in participating in modules or volunteering for On Ramp, please contact us here or at – firstname.lastname@example.org .
