  • British graphic design firm Designers Republic is kaput. If at any time in the 1990’s you were involved with electronic music, video games, or anything to do with a post globalism worldview you know their work. It’s a shame to see them go but it also sounds like it’s time for them to get back to their roots and leave the coca cola accounts behind. (via CR Blog)
  • The Cisneros collection of contemporary Latin American art is headed back to Venezuela after a decade on the run from the socialists. (via Culture Monster)
  • Italian street artist Blu is asking for support of the Squat called Cox 18 in Milano. I really love how many of the european street artists actually are involved with real social unrest. Sometimes it seems that here in America they tend to talk the talk but walk it all the way to the bank.
  • Wallpaper making artist Dan Funderburgh has finally launched his new site with a ton of amazing new designs.
  • Posterboy Catching fame with a Razor (via Bombin’)

  • Boy do I dislike the holidays. I think you can chalk it up to all of the times during the gift swap in elementary school I always ended up with the book of Lifesavers. Well if there is any way to bring me back around to the yule time cheer it would be in the form of one of these great prints by Robert Hardgrave, Blu, or Chris Johanson. Of course they are a bit more than the Lifesavers but just do it for the Kid.
