Music // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Before everyone gets all in a huffy about Kanye West and the fact that they think he is an egotistical megalomaniac, we are going to just agree to disagree with you and enjoy the fact that Mr. West has, over the course of his career, collaborated and been art directed by people like Murakami, Kaws, Morning Breath, George Condo, and now, it appears he will be working with legendary graphic artist, Peter Saville.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
One of the best bio descriptions we have read in a while: "Artist, hair icon, art director, cook, graphic designer, frenchie, Illustrator, dad, genius brain owner, tech digest, curator, co-owner The Contrepétographes." And then graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal throws in this great quote from Larry Niven to complete the feeling: "The Dinosaurs Became extinct Because They Did not Have a space program." Well, then, that makes sense.

Juxtapoz @ The New Balance Factory, Flimby, UK

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
A few years back, in a run of sneaker purchases, I found a great pair of New Balance 576 sneakers, made in the UK, that I paid probably way too much for but just had to have. Since, I have had a minor obsession with New Balance and their UK editions, and in research and conversations with Jux contributor Helen Soteriou, found out NB makes their shoes at a factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK. Helen took the opportunity to go visit the factory last week, and we found a great team of people putting together sneakers for the European market.
