All of These Pins Are MAJOR Hot!

We got chatting with Victor Mares, owner and curator of Ursa Major Supply! If you haven't seen his fire creations yet, then boiiiii where have you been hiding? We have a small selection of his dope pins up on our curated section now! Make sure to go check them out when you're done here.    Do you have an art education background? I graduated from Modesto Junior College in California with an Associates degree in Computer Graphics. A fun tidbit about that is that George Lucas also attended this junior college before going to the University of Southern California. However,...

Why we're obsessed with Overgrown Co.

If you don't already know... get to know. Overgrown Co. are killing it at the moment, with a recent release of insane graphic garms and accessories, they're definitely not to be missed.  Based in Brighton, the design duo create a range of products that also put our planet first.  Overgrown is based around the idea of living in the moment.

There Ain't Any Shame in Being a Nerd When it Comes To Nerd Pins

We caught up with Nerd Pins founder Joe Van Dyke, to find out what made him enter the pin manufacturing world.  What is your main practice? Did you study at University?  I've always created different types of art, including 2 years in college. I left to tour in bands for over 10 years, but never stopped creating.  How did you get into making pins?  I was collecting them for a while, and in late 2015 a friend and I started designing pins together under the name Divided Youth. We still occasionally collab on a pin, but I launched my own brand...

Chatting With Ivy Chan

We got an exclusive interview with the creator and designer of some of the cutest pins in the biz, Ivy Chan.    What is your main practice? Hello! I’m Ivy and I’ve spent the most of my career as a graphic designer at my own studio designing all sorts of goodies for a wide range of clients (most of it was in branding, but I do a little bit of everything!). Over the past few years, I’ve been transitioning into designing my own products and running my online shop, Ivycdraws, full time. Designing products and creating illustrations to celebrate all...
