Man, I love to hate on W+K sometimes. Mostly because I imagine they all get paid in trillions, wear free Nikes + make fun stuff all day long. I think at least one of those is true. Enter, the W+K shop. I don’t think it’s called GOODS but I like calling it GOODS. They sell…goods. Lots of ‘em. And they’re mostly…good. One of the trillionaire fun-time-having sneakerheads emailed this morning to tell us about some new holiday letterpress pieces up in the shop now. You should totally check them out. You should also buy that t-shirt in the grid. Do you know why? Two reasons. One: it’s awesome. Two: our own Carolin Harris designed it. Big up CH!

yack fou




I discovered Yack Fou two years ago, when walking with my classmates amongst hoards of people at a flea market in Berlin. We noticed that a guy in one stall had on a threadless shirt designed by a fellow College of Design student, and so we made our way over to say hello. Small world, huh? That guy just happened to be one of Yack Fou’s artists, and he told us about the company while we perused his stall.

Yack Fou is a group of Berlin-based artists who screenprint shirts, make buttons, canvases, and even wall decals. You really should check out their website, there is quite a variety of awesome illustrations to chose from. Right now they’re having a sale, but you’d better hurry because it ends tomorrow!
