A graphics design studio coming at you from Sweden has just released these new limited posters, all numbered and signed. Dizel&State normally do marketing/artistic campaigns for clients like Diesel, just to name one. They have a unique yet trendy style, and I think that a series of these prints would look sick in pretty much any sneakhyper’s living space. You can check out their site here. Click “works” to see their portfolio or click “store” to see these posters and other stuff for sale.
This store on 21 Mercer has a much different look and feel than the Niketowns you’ve been to. It’s very designer-esque… looks like a Gucci or Prada flagship. It’s got quite a cabin-like feel to it with some really eye-pleasing gallery features. The walk-thru video is so-so, but it’s only a couple minutes long and gives you a behind the scenes and inside look of the store, its layout, its capabilities, and its showcased products.

Last week we showed you a new Stussy shirt for girls that is identical to the one pictured above. I thought that it the shirt was dope and was hoping they would put on out for for the guys as well. My wish came true the mens version seen above is now for sale here at commonwealth.
It looks like Google is gearing up to release a phone that is powered by Google’s Android Software. The Software is expected to match the capabilities of any smart phones that runs on Palm or Microsoft Software and it is even supposed to match the capabilities of the I-Phone. The phone is made by HTC, which is one of the largest Mobile Phone producers in the world, and will feature a touch-screen that also slides up to reveal a full keyboard. T-Mobile will be the first carrier to offer the phone which will be released sometime before Christmas. The price has not yet been released. Via The Galley Boys.
Another artist too good not to sell out to corporate. Dude has done work for British Airways, Nike, Samsung, Oakley, and Nokia to name a few. I really like art that is of mixed media… in his case: photography and graphics design. The combination of the two combine to create this surrealistic and gorgeous feel. This is some of his miscellaneous work that was not done under contract, but you can check out his portfolio here. [one image via spoono]

Make your work space a bit more interesting with either or both of these USB accessories. One is a little LED face guy that responds to noises in the room… be it music or your voice, his facial expression changes and all that. The more practical of the two is the USB miniature refrigerator, big enough to store a can of pop or some illicit narcotics that necessitate cool temperatures. Check out the little dude here, and check out the mini-fridge here.
Normally we like to feature underground artists that don’t do much commercial work, but this guy’s definitely got some underground style, that the corporate world just had to get their hands on so that they, too, could be sneakhype. You can check out Dhanank Pambayun’s online portfolio here. He has done work for companies like Honda and many others that you would recognize.
