Musicians used to be able to make money selling music. These days though, they are expected to make a bit more of an effort: some even get out of bed before noon!

We’ve noticed that this awesome “Half Empty/Half Full” tote bag is currently doing the internet rounds. And rightly so! What a clever idea…

 

 

printed tote bags by Lazy Oaf

These totes are by Lazy Oaf, who are known for their very cool, bright, pop graphic T-shirts, reversible sweats and accessories collections. The company is driven by illustration, graphics, drawing, and fueled by tea (apparently). The creative label started in 2001 – as a range of hand screen printed tees sold at a market stall in East London. All sorts of Lazy Oaf is now available in over 150 stockists worldwide. They’re now based in Shoreditch, London – which is where we are located too.

Come chat to us if you have smart little idea you’d like to see on some tees or totes, we even offer artworking services too!

As you’ll most definitely be aware (unless you’ve been living under a rock…) it is Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend. The UK is awash with Union Jack everything – you can’t move for red, white and blue. It is undoubtedly, cause for celebration – as the only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897 – so party on Ma’am (as in jam)!

So, at least there is good reason for this colour scheme to be absolutely everywhere at the moment. But imagine if everything you created and looked at on a daily basis was red, white and blue. This literally is the case for design duo Crispin Finn. Everything they produce is red white or blue, no tonal variations, nothing. Pretty amazing! They offer “quality design, illustration and goods released in limited quantity at affordable prices” – but there is no justification as to why they work to such a strict colour scheme. As a result, the work on their website ties together beautifully and their style really does lend itself to such restraints – almost giving the work a retro, 1950s feel…

One of our favourite items they’ve come up with is this “Hello my Name is” T-shirt, shown above. It’s a two colour screen print and comes with a washable pen for filling in the “sticker”. They’ve got an array of wonderful screen printed goodies available – from totes to tea towels.

Above, is a collaborative range of sweaters created by talented embroiderer Becky Hogg alongside Crispin Finn. These were inspired by vernacular shop signage of a time gone by. Digital embroidery is a service we offer at Icon Printing, so obviously these were another hit with us. Such great work!

How cool are these!? Unreal Estate have created a line of t-shirts that are inspired by a watercolour animation. Each project is created in tune with a particular theme or as a response to an existing creation or piece of art. These are all thermally reactive, which is such an awesome way of reflecting the qualities of watercolour. American Apparel came up with a similar concept a few years ago, their version went from either a blue or coral tone to white.

The tees were made with skaters in mind, we like the way they change to another colour when warm – probably creating a “tie dye” sort of look, pretty cool stuff!
