Sad Sad news. 'They' say the good die young, but that still doesn't make it any more fathomable. Steve Jobs was an Innovator, Visionary, Creative Genius, all round good egg. The world lost a wonderful human being today. Let his wise words encourage you on your path, whatever that should be. "STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH". x
Nice little behind the scenes insight into the yesteryear branding apparatus MAKR utilise to stamp all their wallet boxes.
Ethan Fowler is the fizz.
Last week we had Jake Johnsons break through section from Mind Field. This week it's the turn of New Jersey's finest - Bobby Puleo, with his 'on the public radar' part from FTC's second visual offering Penal Code 100a. Half Cabs with tongues out. Enjoy.
A new haul of the small (pictured) and large Napsacs from Japanese company BAG 'n' Noun are now live in the shop. These really are something to behold; great selection of fabrics and colours, really well made, durable, with subtle detailing throughout. Their logo and tagline's a belter too. The Japanese just know how to do things right - Understated utilitarian radness. BAG 'N' NOUN at Flatspot.
We've been backing Stacks, in various forms since it's inception in 2000. Stacks has existed as the creative outlet for designer and
art director Michael Leon, creating Tees and the occasional deck. The
Spring of this year saw Michael pursue Stacks full time, partnering with the king of snap Reese Forbes to create a brand focusing on quality, style,
attention to detail, and authenticity. They have been steadily collecting a slick roster of underground talent for their skate team too; Sebo Walker, Barry Mansfield and more recently Ben Fisher. We look forward to receiving the next series of graphics from the hands of Leon.
