2 days ago i went to an open house of a fairly new printer in the design district. (They had already been open 2 months, better late then never i guess.) There pretty much your standard digital printer, but they can print and cut some big ass shit. They could print on anything up to 2 inches thick except mirrors because the lasers would just bounce back and ruin the printer. So if you work or live in or around the design district you now have a super Kinkos in your neighborhood.

Last year i did a post on the Japanese Interior Design Studio Wonderwall , claiming that they were my favorite interior design studio and with the renewal of their website they still claim that position in my mind. Their new work is simply perfect as always. One of things that I've always respected and admired about the Japanese is their strive for perfection in what ever task or skill they pursue. The work of Wonderwall is the definition of perfection in my mind. I mean come on they designed the interiors for the legendary retail store Colette.
The site was designed by Yugo Nakamura . I remember my old boss Will from Definition Advertising putting me on to this dude. His work is ill and super inspiring i definitely suggest looking into his work if you haven't.
Look how fresh his stuff is.

I like seeing collaboration like this happen, between corporate companies and artists/photographers like Yasumasa Yonehara. When the street artist or photographer is legit it always comes out great. I don't really considerate it selling out. The artist's that do these collaborations are constantly hustling in their own way so the collaboration is just another way for them to do what they love for a living. And in this case AXE did a great job by getting Yonehara. The premise of all of AXE's advertising is that if you use their product you'll get all the girls. So who better to convey that message to the Japanese then Yonehara. If you don't know who Yasumasa Yonehara let me put it this way he is like the Hugh Heffner of Japan but gully. Usually when companies jump cultural boundries the message gets lost but Axe really hit the nail on the head with this one. But then again they've always had good advertising.
