Fatboy designs in de pers


Een paar maanden geleden hebben we voor Fatboy een heleboel ontwerpen mogen maken; zitzakken, kussens, lampjes en kleden. Wij waren al heel trots op het resultaat en onze ontwerpen zijn ook door de (internationale) media niet onopgemerkt gebleven. Wij vonden deze producten namelijk terug in een aantal mooie magazines vanuit heel europa. Zoals de Hollandse Linda., het Franse Viva Déco, de Britse Living en in nog vele andere publicaties!

ADCN eert Martin Kaye


Omdat we genomineerd zijn voor 2 ADCN lampen ontvingen we deze week deze unieke poster. De poster is speciaal voor ADCN gemaakt door Dog and Pony Amsterdam als hommage aan Martin Kaye. Kaye was een oude Engelse hippie die in de jaren '70 en '80 zo'n 1800 opvallende posters heeft gemaakt voor poptempel Paradiso en daarmee het straatbeeld van Amsterdam domineerde. Deze poster is op dezelfde manier vervaardigd zoals Kaye altijd deed; dus op hetzelfde formaat, papier en met dezelfde druktechniek. Hierdoor zijn alle posters uniek; geen enkele poster is hetzelfde. Daarom verdient hij ook een mooi plekje in onze studio.
