Juxtapoz // Monday, December 03, 2012
When we think of watch and fashion brand, Nooka, we think of futuristic looking watch faces made for casual outings. Makes sense that Nooka are behind a futuristic statement: a Delorean Taxi now on the streets of NYC. Designer Mike Lubrano wanted to have something that matched the company's futuristic philosophy.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012

New Works from Smithe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
As you can probably tell, we have a mini-obsession with Mexico City-based Smithe these days. A mixture of nostalgic, vintage illustrative style and a bit of the grotesque and absurd make for a beautiful combination, and Smithe is one of the best at the moment. Here is a look at some new music posters and graphic illustrations the artist has completed recently.
