Words

As anyone who has held a catalog, calendar, postcard or leaflet from the brand can attest; Margaret Howell produces not only some of the finest and understated clothes each season, but also an array of exceptionally well designed printed materials. A large part of this is down to the branding, identity and art direction provided by the London based design agency Studio Small, who work with Margaret on everything from the brands website and seasonal look books, to the exhibitions that are shown at many of her stores worldwide.

There are a few talented people around Vancouver, and we've been fortunate enough to get to know a number of them. This fall Stussy got in touch with us to help art direct and produce the first in a series of profiles that features friends and family of the global Stussy Tribe. Raif and Wade are great guys and it was fun to work with them on this series. Stay tuned for the last installment on the Stussy website for the last of the three personality series.

Book / Shop

Book / Shop is a new project undertaken by the always insightful and well-read Erik Heywood: "We're committed to the reading experience. The surprise of one page turning to the other. The little luxury of sitting in a great reading chair, inhaling the scent of a beautifully made book. The luscious heft of three or four good reads in a sturdy bookbag as you head out into the world. The hundred discoveries waiting at a used bookstore; the refuge of a library. In addition to books, we'll offer those irresistible things that go along with them; things like bookcases and reading chairs, reading lamps and bookplates, bookbags and book-related artworks. We believe that a well-made reading environment encourages us to take our time, to have those experiences with books that modern life tries to replace with a rush of empty conveniences."
