THREADLESS + RISD

This post is not new , but i thought my fellow RISD peeps might still be interested.

Hard not to be intrigued when you get an email saying “RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN PARTNERS WITH THE THREADLESS SELECT SERIES TO LAUNCH FIRST-EVER GUEST CURATED SERIES Collection Curated by RISD President John Maeda to Launch on November 6 Featuring Theme of Newness, with Exclusive Designs by Faculty Members”

Art school president and art world superstar team up with ugc t-shirt company…. that would sound pretty incredible already, but the idea of Threadless Select reaching out and working with John Maeda and RISD staff to create 4 t-shirts just blew my mind a little. So take a look at all 4 designs on the next page, as well as the press release!


All the tees will be on sale Monday Nov 10th in the Threadless Select store

EARTH HOUR


WHO: WWF, the Mayor of L.A. and other prominent business/civic leaders around the city will host a slate of events educating, engaging and encouraging residents to turn out their lights for Earth Hour.

WHAT: Citizens of Los Angeles show the world how we can be a green role model and lead the way to a healthier planet. WWF identified L.A. as a leader in environmental issues and chose the city as a flagship location for Earth Hour '09, joining Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, Nashville and San Francisco. L.A. is going to show everyone how we're combating environmental issues and that we're going to keep taking action.

WHEN: Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30 p.m. in every time zone globally.

WHERE: A citywide event will take place that evening and the locations will be announced leading up to March 28. WWF will announce more news and updates weekly.

WHY: From melting glaciers to increasingly intense weather patterns, climate change impacts life on our planet. One person can make a difference, but it will take strong leaders and unified community action on the local, national and international levels to affect long lasting, significant changes.
