Nothing Major has a really nice write-up about our pop-up shop at the Scion AV space.

Following up on yesterday’s painted bookshelves post, it seemed like a good time to run this. When I put this together a few weeks ago, I had just spent the weekend clearing off our living room bookshelves. Not clearing them of books, but the way too many paintings that are stacked three deep, and vases, and magazines that need filing, and the Swedish Lily candlesticks I keep buying on eBay, and so on. I don’t really need bookends, since I have so many books they go from one end to the next, but I’m often tempted by them design-wise. Here’s an array of bookends both functional and beautiful.
Gluekit’s illustration for Newsweek “Yes We Cain!” cover featured on Meet the Press.
“What is the dividing line between a work of art and a commercially designed product? When does something cross the line between aesthetically satisfying and pragmatically plausible? Where do form and function meet, and which should take precedence? These are just a few of the questions that are entertained — if not exactly answered — by A Product Of Design. This show, sponsored by Scion and curated by Gluekit, takes a look at the work of nine different artists (Or are they designers? There are those bothersome distinctions mucking things up again.) who routinely cross the lines between passion and product.” —Jim Allen @ Société Perrier

The November 2008 issue of Grafik magazine featured the Yale University Art Gallery’s Calender Cover Series! Here’s a snapshot of the spread, which showcased covers by Parra, Mike Perry, Ryan Waller, Todd St. John and Antoine+Manuel.
The totes are available now from Part of It ($20). The same design on a classic white tee is $28. A portion of the profits from both products has been designated by Wyeth to go to the Fresno Arts Council.
Go ahead, make some noise!
One of our very, very favorite magazines in the whole entire world, Grafik, profiled us and Part of It in their March 2008 issue. We only just got a copy this week, and are thrilled with the way they distilled the founding of Part of It and described the project. Mark Owens’s “Inherit the Wind” bag was featured in their Showcase photo shoot.
Grafik can be a little hard to get in the US (we order our copies from You Work For Them), so we took a couple of snapshots to share. Enjoy!
Wow! We are just so psyched about this!
Nylon Magazine features Part of It’s “Inherit the Wind” tote (designed by Mark Owens, $20.00 from Part of It) in the 2008 April issue. We were excited to be featured alongside designers like Tracy Jenkins of Village, Keren Richter, and the good folks at Loyalty and Blood. So many cool totes, so little time!
Gluekit is super thrilled that the nice folks at American Way Magazine chose to feature Mike Perry’s “It’s You and Me” shirt from Part of It in a recent column. A portion of the profits from sales of the design are designated for NARSAD, an organization that is focused on finding ways to identify and find treatment for psychiatric disorders. Part of It was one of six initiatives featured, all of which funnel money toward good causes.
