Thanks Jake Churchill (the unofficial mayor of Camden) for sharing this video on his facebook, it’s amazing.
Just ran across this while searching inspiration. It seem like Square offers a free swiper no contract and relatively cheap fees and allows you to accept credit card payments on your iphone/pad. Pretty crazy looking! I’m curious to see how well it works. This might get ride of the huge hassle that is required to get a card swiper from your bank if you just need one for a single event or only occasionally (read artists, craft fair people, etc.). Might have to get one just to see how well it works!
Last weekend was the Printed Matter book fair at PS1 in Long Island city. GasWorks took a little field trip up there the check out what all the commotion was about. First things first there was soooooo much stuff to see. Basically all of PS1 was full of zine, magazines, art books, posters, and far beyond. All three floors of the former school building were packed full of vendors and publishers. We really needed more then just one afternoon there, ideally we would have loved to have had the full four days the show was up to peruse. But still there were a number of gems in there.
If you were there you know what we’re talking about, if you missed it check out the exhibitors here!
Thanks to all the people I’m sure worked real hard to make this happen, can’t wait until next year!
Did Don Draper make this?
Hope yall are making amazing costumes and have amazing plans! Happy Halloween!

Oh how true this is, and what an entertaining Venn Diagram (love the total lack of connection). You know your a designerd when Venn Diagrams about the internet make you laugh out loud.
The weekend of the NYC book Fair presented by Printed Matter fast approches! Free admission to PS1 and promises to be chock full of wonderful print stuff.
Meet at 12pm at the Nassua G stop and we can walk up if it’s really nice or take the G to Long island city.
Should be super fun!

We have two desks for rent in our huge loft space in an awesome industrial building. The studio has a freight elevator that opens into the space, slop sink and screen printing area, tons of windows and Manhattan views!
We are a collective of design / web / film peeps looking for some good people that do great work and are interested in renting desk space. We each have our own work and clients but we very often work together with other people in the space since each of us has more work than we want!
