Sub-Studio Design Blog

Hi! Back in June we migrated our blog over to Wordpress, and I thought that all of our RSS feeds wouldn't be interrupted but it was brought to my attention recently that this wasn't the case. If you are seeing this post, you need to update your feed: http://blog.sub-studio.com. Thanks so much!

The Working Proof: Heisuke Kitazawa - Dance Party

Dance Party is an awesome print by Heisuke Kitazawa, an illustrator that I have long since admired, ever since spotting his wallet series for PoketoDance Party is about how we coexist with others. It expresses how Heisuke feels about communication:
Animals or humans it's all the same. It's all about sincerity - how we treat others and not about knowing the language or other communication methods.
This is a digital print on acid free, Neenah uncoated matte 100lb cover paper that is 80% recycled. It was digitally signed by the artist and was numbered by The Working Proof. 15% of each print sold will benefit Puppies Behind Bars. Read our interview with Heisuke here, and buy the print here.

MIYA Customizable Headphones

I love these super customizable headphones by MIYA. For about $63, you can come up with a million combinations with the number of pieces that you can customize. Oh, and if you are lazy like me, you can hit the shuffle button to create random customizations (all of the headphones above were created that way). Fun!

Cité du Surf et de l’Océan - Steven Holl

All the Cité du Surf et de l’Océan by Steven Holl needs is a huge can of bondo and it would be nicely skateable.

A beautiful house half-submerged in a sand dune with a wood-sided upper level that floats above an open ground floor. Nice work by JVA and Mole Architects.

The Working Proof: Jez Burrows - Sea Dream

I love the simplicity of this print edition by Jez Burrows - a series of maritime elements that make up a nautical dream. Sea Dream is a four-color Gocco screenprint on 140 lb Canaletto Liscia paper.  15% of each print sold will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières.

Burton - Beeracuda

At first I thought, oh Burton makes a yoga mat carrier, that's kinda weird. A look closer reveals that it's actually a Beeracuda, which makes a lot more sense.
