Shop Hunting Tuesdays: Atypical

Atypical   |   http://atypical.it

Atypical, an independent brand created in 2012, specialized in handmade quality cruiser skateboards, is born. Unique pieces inspired by the first 60s-70s skates that constitute a direct bridge with the surf reality of those years. The decks, with an highly recognizable design, have been realized by hand in Italy using solid wood from the selection of best ash trees.

The Classic FW 2012 Collection is made of 5 models: the first model #Original takes advantages of wood different tones, combining to the natural warm typical of ash the elegance of mordant; the other four models instead play with pastel tones, join by the pureness of white. The link of the entire collection is the use of geometric lines with a constant attention to the graphic cleanliness, distinctive of the brand.

Shop Hunting Tuesdays: Lega-Lega

image

Lega-Lega  http://lega-lega.com

Lega-lega was created rather casually, as a result of mental exercises and brainstorming in Osijek-based design studio Mit. We figured out that we wanted to have products that would solve some of our problems too. We were aware that there are many products somewhat similar to our ideas, but seriously lacking creativity and fun.

Although technology has made possible not to have to use pen and paper, there’s something cool about ink or graphite on paper. These reasons inspired us, and drove us to create a product that will praise and encourage writing, drawing or doodling and with time become a part of you because you will imbue it with a part of yourself.

Other then keeping your Lega-Lega T-shirt fresh it can also be used as a decoration in your lovely home, a trap in your fridge or as a container for your nick-nacks.

Shop Hunting Tuesdays: Little Mountain Supply Co

Little Mountain Supply Co   |  littlemountainsupplyco.com

A while back, before I bought my first screen printing machine, I was scrummaging through an old photo album that my parents had stored away. Within the dust and a few moths, I came across a photo with rolling hills, a cloudless skyline and a rich forest. In the background was a little mountain. Now if you speak any Czech, you’ll already know that my family name, Horacek, means “Little Mountain”—a fact that I had only recently discovered. In that moment, looking at that photo, it all just clicked. My name, the image and the logo icon just came together so naturally.

For a few short years, I did the best I could to fully master the true art and craftsmanship that is the screen printing process. By using traditional tools, such as graphite, water color paints, charcoal and my personal favorite the Sharpie, I created an organic and natural look that just felt right to me. I’ve found that much can be achieved with a combination of simple illustration and solid typography, and I’ve learned to find the beauty in little imperfections.

There’s a true gratification that you get when you are able to take a passion and turn into something special. I am Joe Horacek and I am the owner and operator of Little Mountain Print Shoppe and its Supply Company.

Little Mountain Supply recently released an Autumn Collection, featuring some really cool T-shirt designs that are perfect for the No Shave November. Each shirt from was hand printed by your fellow bearded screen printer, right here in the United States of America. Using premium inks with high mesh screens allowing less ink to be cure on the garment. Each shirt is individually printed. Making no two tee’s a like.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of this awesome T-shirts or you just want to see the whole collection, proceed to their website or facebook page.
