This week I visited the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City with the team from Imprint Culture Lab. The current exhibition, “Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change,” focuses on the global problem of rising sea levels, the increased intensity of natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, typhoons in the Philippines, the Tōhoku earthquake & tsunami in Japan, and what that means for low-lying areas like The Netherlands, Bangladesh, and right here in California. Fascinating, albeit worrying, stuff – with some inventive solutions presented too. Worth a visit!
I’m just blogging to say I blogged on another blog. Or, in plain English, I was lucky enough to interview emcee/producer/visual artist Shing02 for Imprint Culture Lab earlier this week. I remember listening to his music way back in the ’90s, when I was a young hip-hop fiend and he was already known for tackling tough political issues.
Head to the shop to check out two great new minimalist wallet styles from from top notch LA-based brand Heart Wright Co. Proudly made in the USA, and proudly offered here in the Typo Shop! The homie V, who runs Heart Wright Co, put in years of work designing accessories at a major streetwear brand, and this is his passion project.
It’s great to see clothing game OG Mike Dytri of Ludwig Van getting some much-deserved recognition on The Hundreds website with this Day Jobs feature! Mighty Mike has consistently been ahead of the curve for the 15 odd years I’ve known him. I’ve interviewed him here in the past and for Imprint Culture Lab more recently.
Here’s some nicely shot and well-deserved video content on Andrew Chen, founder of clothing label 3sixteen, via cognac brand Courvoisier. Andrew, Johan, and crew, have consistently been making top-notch clothing for well over a decade now – an impressive feat in of itself. They are particularly well-known for their excellent denim, as showcased here.
