Redesign Giveaway #1

Let’s get this giveaway extravaganza kicked off right, shall we!?

Brainstorm – ‘Planets Poster’

The amazing duo Brainstorm from Portsmouth, who recently teamed up with another amazing duo we all know so well, has generously donated one of their kickass screen prints! The print is signed & stamped by Brainstorm and at 16 x 20 it will fit most standard frames.

Carolin Harris – Stick Stack

Our very own (we’re lucky to have one!) Carolin Harris has graciously offered her latest screenprinted poster ‘Stick Stack’. This poster is rad, people. (Pro tip: rollover Carolin’s author tag on her posts to see a sneak peak of her printing the poster!)

Bound Custom Journals – Designer Camouflage Journal

Finally, another good citizen of OK Greatland, Michael Faber & his team at Bound Custom Journals has donated one of their limited edition journals. Details from Michael: A Bound “Uncustom” Journal from the folks at  The Designer Camouflage edition is a short-run (only about 30 made) of memo notebooks with alternating dot grid and lined pages within.  And we’ll throw in a sticker.  And maybe some other Bound loot, too.  YOU NEVER KNOW.

Our powers combined: Industry Standard

Yes. That’s correct. We’ve started a new business. A year after we opened Haigh & Martino in our bedroom and a few years after we became internet friends with Brainstorm (remember the rad giveaway we did with them!!??) we combined forces and have opened Industry Standard, a screen printing shop with the greatest intentions. We’ll be working with talented artists whether they’re a big name already or waiting to be discovered by readers or kids with crisp bills at craft shows.

Things have been moving fast, to say the least. The pic above is from a recent open house for important people at 3S Artspace, where our studio (both HAM, Brainstorm and IN/ST combined workspace) is located. We’ve been lucky to become friends with the founder of 3S, all around amazing dude, Chris Greiner (he sings and surfs!!) and we’re ecstatic to be housed in the next hub of all things creative in Portsmouth, NH. 3S will be turning into a music venue, an art gallery and a farm to table restaurant. Not a bad place for us to be. I can just imagine working all day in the studio and walking downstairs to check out the band and grab a beer at the bar. WHAAAT?!!? Dreams, people. Dreams. They sometimes surprise you and come true.

3S was kind enough to offer us a ginormous (albeit real raw) space and with a little elbow grease, some pallets and a lot of love for what we do, we’ve got it into working condition with enough room for every-thang. And then some.

The greatest thing about Industry Standard so far? If it’s not the lunchtime frisbee/skateboarding breaks, the bobby bottleservice jokes, serious shop talk about paper stock or the sheer thrill of walking into a space that looks and feels like who we all are and want to be – then it’s definitely being in business with great people who love to work hard and play even harder.

If you’re an artists who needs screen printing, give us a holler.

If you’re a bright young thing looking to make your life truly yours, I hope this post inspires you to jump into it. Fully. We have and it’s the best thing we’ve ever done. So far.

Brainstorm Poster Giveaway

Bicyclists, commuters, countrymen, lend me your (g)ears…

OK, bad jokes aside, we’ve teamed up with amazing New Jersey design team Brainstorm to offer our readers this eco-friendly, bike-lovin’, silkscreened “Go Ride a Bike” poster.


Brainstorm just spent this past weekend at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn and Wednesday they’re off to Bonnaroo (they did 2009 design work for the festival).  So, while the hungry masses are devouring their posters with serious bloodlust, you could be winning this beauty from the comfort of your swivel chair.


Check out this talented duo’s website and shop for hilarious and good looking prints like this one and, my favorite, this one.

To be entered to win, all you have to do is leave a comment here and let us know what kind of bike you ride (links to photos are a bonus)!  Entries will end on Sunday night (6/14) @ 11:59pm and we’ll pick a winner on Monday!  Good luck!

[the poster is 19"x 25" and printed on French cardboard]
