Barcelona based Hey Studio makes really graphically strong work that is both socially and aesthetically aware. Check our their work after the jump, especially their branding project for Intermón Oxfam. The aim was to renew the image of Oxfam and create an emotional link between the association and its young target. To create a more visual language, the letters are converted into illustrations, which increases the signification of words and create a own graphical personality, direct and reinvidicative. Titles are reduced to one single word to communicate quicker and more directly. The all identity is based on one single black colour printed on different colour papers, to facilitate the production and lower costs.
As an animal lover I’ve always been sensitive to animal rights issues. However even the biggest steak loving, McDonalds eating, “I Love Hunting” carnivores will be touched by the amazing and shocking documentary!
In a sleepy lagoon off the coast of Japan lies a shocking secret that a few desperate men will stop at nothing to keep hidden from the world. At last, the truth of THE COVE comes to the fore in an act of covert filmmaking that turns a documentary into a gripping action-adventure thriller . . . and a heart-pounding call for help from the worlds oceans.
Reed + Radar’s photography is both beautiful and haunting. I don’t know too much about this duo, but I do know that they’ve managed to give me the chills with all of these animated clown faces. Check them out, I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the future.
Paul over at Buy Tees recently reviewed our recent Summer ’09 apparel release that went on the online shop last week. The review is really something else- he went through and gave amazing, descriptive reviews of four of our tees (Explosion, Goldfish, Meltdown and Throw Up). Just check out his words on Goldfish: “Highly reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s early animated works with topped up with a thick slice of Salvador Dalifor good measure, Jerico Santander’s beautifully bizarre t-shirt design simply entitled Goldfish leaves me agog. I’ll type one-handed as the other attempts to close my dropped jaw which will probably remain in that position for at least the next few minutes.” Anyways, check out the review….and, while you’re at it….check out Paul’s artwork here.
Do you stay awake at night dreaming of the day when you can interact with artists and designers from around the world? Do you get a warm & fuzzy feeling every time you walk by a bookstore or magazine stand? Have you always wanted to work side by side with the an elite group of creative minds who only use the finest office supplies such as golden staples? Do you enjoy nothing more than resizing and cropping a pile of photographs as tall as a 3 story building? If you answered yes to any of these (or none of these questions) then this just may be the internship for you!
Now that you feel excited about our internship opening read the fine detail after the jump!

Philippe Ramette is an artist who uses two major media to express himself: with installation and sculpture, creating impossibly surreal objects and situations often using nonsense humor, and with the turning of his own body clothed in a black suit into a surreal situation, just one component of a landscape so extravagant and visually stunning.
