fantastic finds: threadless at blik!
i was so excited to see this beautiful new collection from blik design in my inbox this morning. blik held a fabulous design competition called "blik loves threadless" that encouraged designers to submit designs that would make great tees (for threadless) and would also work well as a set of wall decals. close to 340 designs were entered and 2 made the cut- happy when it rains by zeptonn.nl (a rainbow and bouncy people pattern) and 7.00 by letter (a bird on branch pattern). each pattern is fun, colorful, funky and totally fantastic. there's a cartoon flair to each pattern that makes them a bit more cutting edge than the main collection and perfect for those who find traditional wall graphics a little safe. each collection sells for $55 and can be arranged however you like- i think they're far too cool to hide in a small space so i suggest proudly displaying them in your most visible spot. i just think it's fantastic that blik is celebrating the talent of independent designers and making their work available for the mass market. more people should be doing this on a big, big scale. be sure to check out the fantastic gallery of entries, too!
