Soundscreen Design / New “Vinyl is Forever” edition featuring Rob Giampietro
Soundscreen Design produces a limited collection of t-shirts, hoodies and tote bags featuring the “Vinyl is Forever” series which is as much about design as it is about an ethos for an often ignored, but highly influential, subculture of avid music fans. For each edition, Soundscreen Design (http://www.soundscreendesign.com), the company behind the project, collaborates with a different designer/studio to create a visual representation of the slogan “Vinyl is Forever.” The results appeal to those who swear by vinyl, appreciate thoughtful design, or just want a cool-looking shirt.
On the heels of the successful first and second editions (designed by German design studio Human Empire and Swedish graphic designer Andreas Samuelsson respectively), the third installment of “Vinyl is Forever” features the design of New York based designer, writer, and teacher Rob Giampietro. Giampietro teaches at Parsons The New School for Design in New York and in the graduate graphic design program at RISD in Providence, RI. He also served on the Executive Board of AIGA/NY from 2007-2009. Rob has participated in lectures and panels at the School of Visual Arts, the New Museum, and Yale University. His commentary on design and visual culture has appeared in Dot Dot Dot, Design Observer, Emigre, Eye Magazine, and more.
The third edition, is printed on premium, organic, Alternative Apparel Garments, and is available in crew neck Ts, 3/4 sleeve henleys, crew neck sweatshirts, and grocery size tote bags.
