From: t looks like those ever dependable Tokions are keeping it nice and tidy. If you’ve never flipped through a copy, FRUiTS has a very simple content flow: each issue contains 80-odd pages of head-to-toe streetshots with details outlined in the footer. Arguably the most influential fashion magazine of the past decade, I love FRUiTS because it has inspired a generation of girls to embrace a fashion style that is eclectic, expressive, haphazard but always well executed.
Cool article detailing the process of how Matthias makes his art over at Designfeedr.
Good Wood, Alldaybuffet, and Aww Sweet team up to create charity auction of dope one-of-a-kind custom skate decks. Opens tonight in NYC.
Good Wood features 40 decks from the Detroit show, plus additional works by New York artists: Mike Perry, Fernanda Cohen, Nathan Fox, Keetra Dixon, Jeremy Traum, John Breiner, and Unplate. Many of the participating artists are not skateboarders themselves, making their contribution a contrast to those artists who are renowned in the skate community.

I’m willing to bet there isn’t a sector of graphic design that allows more creativity and more artistic freedom. Despite the amazing talent and style, the “scene” suffers from a few fatal flaws that need to be remedied. If you’re a designer and your client base consists mostly of bands and clothing companies (myself included) then you need to read this.
I’ve interviewed eight of the premier designers in the music and apparel industry. Each designer had lots to say about the subject and spoke from their own experiences as well as what they observe in the design community. I’ve compiled a list of 15 mistakes and summarized the key points for each.
Freelance Aristocrat: a decently educated, cultured individual who skips from metropole to metropole but rides the subway in every city he (or she) inhabits.
