Latest Reed Pages/Erykah Badu Cover.

January 20, 2011

Jeff Staple posted a picture on his Twitter of the cover of the latest issue of Reed Pages. The issues cover story is on Erykah Badu who Jeff spent a few days on tour with. Very happy to see a new issue is being made as I absolutely loved the first one.

When the magazine first debuted, it was suppose to be a quarterly and I heavily considered getting a subscription but opted not to because I didn’t think they would publish them on a timely matter. It seems I was right as the last issue came out in the middle of 2009. That’s not a knock against them as I understand how difficult it is to produce a magazine in a timely manner, especially for Jeff and Staple Design guys who have a lot on their plate as it is.

That said, I’m glad to know they are grinding out another one. Can’t wait for the issue to come out. Long live print!

Jeff Staple: The Accident

May 14, 2010

This is one of my favorite videos. Despite not owning many Staple Design shirts(I have a few but most unfortunately run too big for my liking) they remain one of my favorite brands. Here Jeff Staple tells his story from the company’s humble beginnings to how it came to be the creative force it is today.

He speaks on everything from designing covers for Rawkus Records in the late 90’s, the Pigeon Dunk, collaborating with Hiroshi Fujiwara on iDiom, and his retail store Reed Space. It’s a lengthy video but well worth the time as far as I’m concerned. Absolutely inspiring.
