More finds from Renegade. IN COMPANY PAPER is a husband + wife duo from Astoria. We love Queens and love their designs. We’re also dead suckers for food trends turned into wearable. Add some gold and Missus Tasty goes manic. This avocado toast pin screamed birthday gift for my vegetarian mother-in-law, all but the egg. It’s the perfect brunch accessory. Every foodie should have this at the ready for that last minute Sunday Funday text.
More Design Stuff
Bryan Sculthorpe had us locked at last years Renegade with his 10×20 inch “stacked” series. Family Time spoke to us loud and clear. Bryan has some new illustrations this year. Pizza being our favorite. He even branched out into pins this year. Hard to say “no” to all his work but we need more wall space first.
To kick off our run up to Valentines Day, let’s start with a puntastic card that also has my favorite food front and center. Giving this to my wife is like saying I love you more than anything in the know universe being that pizza ranks #2 just after her.
It’s summer. You are, or should be, on the grill every weekend if not every single night. What’s a guy (or gal) to do with such an over zealous summer cooking ritual you might ask. Step 1 is to make fast friends with your butcher. Step 2 is to get some Blue Q BBQ Socks. Roll up those pants and throw on a pair of flip flops for max exposure. These socks say, “Not only am I grilling up some tasty craziness, but I’m a little crazy myslef.” We encourage you to mbrace that. At least until Labor Day.
So, we have a thing for pizza. Not only do we love to eat that crispy crust, bubbling cheese and aromatic triple meat topping BUT, we’ll wear it on our lapel. Jen Adrion and Omar Noory make lots of perfect little, delicious items. None more satisfyingly cute than this pizza pin. Their website does tons of explaining on who they are, their Ohio studio details, what they have done (and it’s a lot) and where you can get their stuff. Aside from their creative excellence the seemingly obsessive use of ™ and ® is fantastic. As in their tagline, WE MAKE THINGS™. The line YOU LOVE THINGS™. Or, as in this mantra, These Are Things®. Whether truly trademarked or registered, the inside joke or official-ness is welcomed. Plus, they have cats that are dope based on their Insta.
