Pepsi 1893

TheeBlog_Pepsi1893 Pepsi has suffered a couple of fails over the years. Remember when they burned Michael Jackson’s hair? Their ridiculous rebrand? Or their recent fiasco during their Back to the Future bottle release? Yet, their latest attempt at being cool might be a little too much, even for them. Pepsi has announced their new artisanal cola (yes, I had to check to make sure it was not an Onion or SNL joke) in order to market to… you guessed it. Millennials! – Yup, that damn term again :/ Check out the photos and video after the jump…

Masters of Air, Vol. 1

If you consider yourself a sneakerhead, or into sneakers, this is a film that you have to add to your must watch list… For these collectors, Air Max is a way of life, an obsession, a form of self expression. Some have amassed thousands of Air Max, while others possess some of the rarest collaborations ever released. No matter what their collections look like, they all have one thing in common: a deep passion for Visible Air.

Raul Alejandro x Hallmark

TheeBlog-RaulAlejandro_Hallmark You may remember my homie Raul Alejandro from an interview back in 2014 (HERE), or you may recognize his work from your IG feed. I’ve always been a fan of Raul’s intricate and inspiring work, and his IG account is one I constantly share with students or type and lettering lovers. Today I am glad and proud to share Raul’s latest project/collaboration, with none other than Hallmark Signature cards. Each card in this new series features Raul’s lovely and signature lettering style, meaning that yes, these are definitely not your grandma’s cards! Check them out at the link below and buy one, or two :) Congrats again, brother!

Stance x Star Wars

TheeBlog_Stance-StarWars Collaborations between brands have become a hot trend when it comes to fashion – or any type of goods. The mix of two great companies working together to produce limited edition or rare products is something collectors and fans find extremely hard to ignore or miss. Look at Jordan x Supreme for example! To celebrate the release of Star Wars’ newest film, Stance decided to partner up and create a limited edition set of really cool socks featuring the saga’s iconic characters. Being the sock geek I am, and considering Christmas is approaching, I had to share this as soon as I found it.

Pepsi Perfect

TheeBlog-PepsiPerfect If you are a Back to the Future geek like me, then you know October 21 is a pretty big deal (If you don’t know why, you’re not as hardcore as you think) But for the new kids and those who are not familiar, let me explain. October 21, 2015 is the date when Marty and Doc travel to the future. Remember those future scenes with hover boards, AR movie posters, flaying cars… Seemed like an awesome time right? Well, it’s the year 2015 and we have Donald Trump running for President. Yeah, let that sink in… To join the BTTF celebration, Pepsi is releasing a limited edition Pepsi Perfect bottle – just like the one featured in the movie. There are only a few hundred produced so be sure you get yours. Now, if we can only get dehydrated pizza from Pizza Hut…

Field Notes COLORS Fall 2014

The great folks at Coudal Partners recently launched a sweet promo video for my good friend and all-time Badass Aaron Draplin and his new collection of Field Notes. “The 24th COLORS release, introduces brand-new, limited-edition FIELD NOTES memo books for the fall of 2014. We generally take this chance to describe the papers, materials, and process in excruciating detail, but this time, we’ll let the film explain it all…” Gotta love the censoring…

Nothing Stops Serena

Three months ago, right before the Brasil World Cup, Beats by Dre dropped a beautiful ad spot featuring a group of iconic players and their intimate rituals before a game (HERE). It was then established that Beats is here to compete creatively with its competitors and giants like Nike or Adidas. A new ad spot has been released, this time featuring Serena Williams, the #1 female tennis player in the world. The spot features Serena’s sacrifice and impressive daily routines – which explains why she’s the best.

The September Event

TheeBlog-Apple_SeptemberEvent September is an iconic and important month for many people. For some, there’s Fashion Week, but for tech geeks and pretty much everyone who’s ready to splurge on the coolest and newest gadgets, there’s Apple’s September Event. As you probably know by now, Apple made a couple of big announcements yesterday including the release of new iPhones (6 and 6 Plus), and the introduction of Apple Watch. So, instead of listing details, going into specifics or writing lengthy reviews, I compiled a few videos that feature these new products and that will give you an overall idea of what to expect. Happy buying!

Star Wars Tapestry

TheeBlog-StarWars_Tapestry00 When it comes to Star Wars we’ve seen many things, Star Wars posters, shoes, toys, paintings, clothing, sex toys, and conventions.

British Designer Aled Lewis created this massive piece which was recently showcased at Gallery 1988 in LA, and that is available, listen up fanboys, for $20,000. Check it out after the jump!

The Marty McFly

TheeBlog-MartyMcFly_Tshirt So, Valentine’s day is approaching and I am sure there are still a few of you out there looking for that perfect gift. You know, that little something different and unique that you could only find if you do some research – because flowers and chocolates are… a bit dated. So, being that I am a nice guy, and that I tend to spend a couple of hours a week ‘researching the interweb’, I decided this week is all about cool and unique gifts (for both) that you may not find at CVS. Since it is a given that ladies always get the good stuff, we’ll start with the dudes, and what better way to start than with this badass Back to the Future – Marty McFly tshirt! Think about it ladies, your boyfriend will love it (unless he’s not into Back to the Future – in that case, break up with him!) and you can feel like a cool and hot Jennifer Parker. You are welcome!

Bipolar Tee + Cotton Bureau

TheeBlog-BipolarTshirt_CottonBureau Last year I launched a t-shirt project and debuted the Bipolar Tee (HERE) As most of you probably already know, the demand for this shirt surpassed any goals or plans (completely sold out!) and received a lot of love globally, as we received orders from all continents – including countries like Japan, South Africa, Brazil, Australia, Germany and many more. Today I want to share some exciting news, specially for those of you who are still after one of these babies. The Bipolar Tee is available again thanks to the awesome folks at Cotton Bureau. There’s only one catch, the shirt needs at least 25 orders in order to go to production (and we only have 12 days left!). So, if you want one, head over to Cotton Bureau and get one – or many – today!

Sam Barclay designs Dyslexia

TheeBlog-SamBarclay_Dyslexia Let’s face it, we are all aware or know at least one person who suffers from dyslexia, and although we somewhat know some facts about the condition, we really don’t have a clear understanding of how it affects people. Yes, there have been methods created to improve and help dyslexic patients, but how can we really understand and think of ways to help if we are not able to see first hand what it’s like to be dyslexic. Sam Barclay, a recent University of Portsmouth Graphic Design graduate came up with the brilliant idea to use Design to demonstrate the hurdles dyslexic patients have to deal with on a daily basis. This book aims to provide the reader with a beautiful, design led experience of what it feels like to struggle with reading and it is currently being funded by generous folks through KickStarter.

Typism Book!!

TheeBlog-TypismBook Today I want to share some awesome news coming from Australia. Last month, Typism, an international Type conference, took place in Australia and it featured many amazingly talented and inspiring Designers and Type Masters like Dominique Falla (its creator), Gemma OBrien, Matt Vergotis, Nicole Phillips, Wayne Thompson, Aurelie Maron and Bobby Haiqalsyah.. Being the Type geek I am, I loved the idea and learned about the event earlier this year. Now, although I couldn’t make it to Gold Coast to be part of this inspiring conference, my work did :) Back in May, Dominique contacted me and invited me to be part of the Typism book she was building in conjunction with the conference. The idea of the book was to gather Designers and Type Lovers from all over the world like Jon Contino, Simon Alander, Sergey Shapiro, Jackson Alves, and put them together in a cool new Typebook… YES!

Jay-Z & Samsung

TheeBlog-JayZ_Samsung There is no doubt that Jay-Z is a business, man. His global reach has expanded way beyond music, and his (or his team’s) entrepreneurial skills, are nothing short of admirable. His image and empire has proven to be a gold mine for sponsors and corporations willing to partner up to milk his media value. And now, Jay-Z has partnered with Samsung to release an exclusive treat for Samsung Galaxy users, ahead of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail official release date (July 4th). Samsung purchased 1 million copies of the album, and will offer Galaxy users the opportunity to download it 3 days before it hits stores. Check out the event teaser video, aired during game 5 of the finals between the Heat and Spurs, after the jump.

Let’s talk Apple and iOS7

TheeBlog-Apple_ios7 So, by now, I am pretty sure you are aware of Apple’s latest releases and announcements. Yes, reactions to these have been… let’s say eclectic – or colorful (seems a little more appropriate). Today I want to briefly talk about the re-design of iOS7. One, because I know you guys are probably also struggling with this issue and two, because I needed to rant. I’ve been a loyal Apple supporter for years and was curious to see if the rumors about Ive’s new flat experience were true, I mean, as a Designer, this was something I was looking forward to. But what I saw at WWDC simply didn’t feel right… (and I am being gentle)

Memo Randoms

TheeBlog-MemoRandoms Remember those ‘inspirational’ posters? Yes, those old, ugly and extremely tacky posters that never inspired a single soul. Yet, there are offices out there still using them… What if we can replace them with some posters that might actually make more sense and could really make things better for everyone at the office? Designer Jason Franzen decided it was time to take action and created Memo Randoms. A series of posters with subtle, witty statements and recommendations for a better office/world. Check them after the jump or head over to FAB to purchase them!

Keep Calm & Carry On

TheeBlog-KeepCalmCarryOn

You’ve seen it everywhere. From posters at agencies, coffee shops or galleries, to mugs, screensavers, t-shirts and tattoos. Oh, and of course, all its numerous satiric variations online. But, do you really know the origin and history of this iconic poster? The fact that it was commissioned and created back in 1939 yet it was never released to the public? There’s more to this poster than just Urban Outfitters iPhone covers, and it is a very interesting and cool story. Today, we’ll learn the history behind the iconic “Keep Calm & Carry On” poster thanks to Barter Books, home of the original poster. Happy Friday!
