I view myself as a badass, like if I see an Angelia Joile movie I think “we have a lot in common”. Well, true or not, I definitely appreciate the work and identities of other badasses. People like these people featured in the materials below. This morning Refinery29 has a story and slideshow of 20 favorite business cards collected and/or created by Emmett Shine, the creative director/founder of media co. Gin Lane. What a great company name. I love gin. Positive association, check. Here are MY FAVORITES from Emmett’s favorites, followed by some more of the company’s work, it’s really impressive and inspiring. Their clients are big.
PS IF YOU DON’T RECOGNIZE the subject line, click here to view an old post I did on one of my favorite movies, American Psycho. Then, if you want to watch it, come to our place bc we own it and have a big couch and lots of candles. And beer.WHITMAN’S is a burger joint in the East Village with an incredible hand-drawn logo and an interior “inspired by classic Americana decor and cuisine”–um, I need to go there. You do understand my love for Americana, right? Are we friends?
Gin Lane created the identity for “NYC’S BEST” SURFSHOP – SATURDAYS. Which wouldn’t have seemed relevant except that I just saw the SATURDAYS t-shirts offered in J.CREW’s catalog yesterday for an In Good Company feature.
