Wolf & Badger

19 August 2009

Mike Jeter got in touch to let us know about a new shop opening in London called Wolf & Badger, the idea of which is to “provide an affordable opportunity for designers to display and retail their products, as well as gain exposure to trade buyers.” Site design by I Shot Him.

We received a note from an online bookshop that just opened up. Counter-Print.co.uk sells a mixture of new and vintage design/art books – nice collection of rare and hard-to-find titles.

Ashi Dashi Socks

socks

Hi everyone. My name is Sean and I’m new to The Strange Attractor. Pete asked me to contribute about a week ago and I couldn’t be more excited!

Anyway, I thought I’d start off with a link to the Ashi Dashi Shop. Ever since high school I’ve loved crazy socks. I have no idea why I’ve had this obsession, but seriously how could you not want a pair of meat socks?!

Our friend Steven Harrington got in touch to let us know about his recent collaboration with Arkitip, designing a custom laptop sleeve and iPhone case. The video takes a peak at the gallery show and Steven’s studio/home.

That One blueThat One gold

The inauguration of the 44th US President, Barack Obama, this January 20, 2009 marks an exciting, pivotal point in history. The ‘THAT ONE: HISTORY’ image is an iconic image created by illustrator Justin Hampton as a tribute to this historic moment.

The limited edition silk screened print of HISTORY sold out immediately when it was released last month, but SIGNED five color screen printed handbills on 100 lb acid free paper stock in metallic inks measuring 6″x 6″ are NOW on sale starting – yesterday! Better get on it! (I have two and LOVE them).

$5 Silver handbill

$7 Gold Handbill

A portion of the profits from these prints will be donated directly to the DNC for the new administration’s transition.
