BOIKZMOIND Trailer from Xynthetic on Vimeo.

This is the awesome new trailer for the forthcoming fixed gear bike film BOIKZMOIND. Filmed by Gavin Strange (aka Jam Factory) and Mackinov.

No Gears

The No Gears fixie evening in Bristol was great. The event played out at the Cube cinema in Bristol this bank holiday Monday. Bikes, BBQ, brilliant movies & skid comp.
Everyone was also treated to a teasing trailer of BOIKZMOIND, which is set to be possibly the first true British made fixed gear movie.
Met some fab people, saw some sweet bikes, and generally enjoyed the vibe.
Hats off.

Death Before Derailleur

Working under the cover of darkness this bank holiday, White duck was taken over by the Fixed Gear Facists. We spent an evening printing these (slightly sinister) tees and posters for Jam Factory in preparation for the No Gears fixie meet in Bristol.

Mongol Rally 09 t's

Fresh off the print floor are these new 3 colour Mongol Rally 09 shirts, for The Adventurists, which are looking good. You’ll only be lucky enough to wear one of these participant shirts if you’ve signed up for the rally, which launches on the 18th July from Hyde Park. We’re just about to do a top-up run for their generic ‘attire’ too. Good luck to all those heading into the unknown…..

Computer Arts Projects - WDSP/Craig Ward collaboration

The aim with this piece was to re-create the subtleties of the artwork in print and we're really happy to say that it worked. The poster looks AMAZING! It was commissioned by Computer Arts Projects, as a collaboration between WDSP and Craig Ward, as a subscription offer, available now. So, if you are not already subscribing then now is about the best time imaginable.

Stan Peach Check

The really rather interesting Stan Peach has created the worlds only zig zag check as a limited and numbered poster and t-shirt. For us it was satisfying to print as it is a tight registering geometric 3 colour print, always fun. Not much is known about this man, but we know he believes in producing brilliant limited edition pieces. The motto on his website reads 'back in the day when shit was hand-made', we like this.

Any Forty X Mountain Biking UK

Ingenious clothing brand Any Forty have collaborated with bike magazine, Mountain Biking UK to bring you two great limited edition designs. They'll be laid down on a range of colourways to be printed on a tidy run of 2000. This project was pulled together to go on sale at Bike Radar LIVE, (the ultimate cycling festival) at Donington Park, in May, where MBUK has a strong presence. This is another great illustration of how Any Forty are going all out to become a name we can love and trust to give us cool collaborations and great design every time.

Bristol Design Festival Poster

Here is a sneak peak at the official poster for this year's Bristol Design Festival. Designed by the magnificent local designer Marc Bessant. This edition of 100, two colour screen prints will be signed and numbered and available throughout the festival. Who better to tell us about the thinking and doing behind the design of this piece than Marc himself "Originally created from a number of wood block prints and intended to be hung either landscape or portrait, its a pun on Bristol's most famous creator Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the man with the tall hat and short cigar responsible for umpteen modern marvels in-and-around the South West of this fair Isle..."

Grey Skies & Pigeons & Red Shiny Buses

What a wonderful poster to print. A crisp, clean typographic poster from Studio 8, on some rather interesting hemp paper from Fenner Paper. Looked even nicer once cropped down.

Any Forty x Sick Systems

Fresh to death indeed, Any Forty are really pulling it out of the bag with their awesome versus range. This Beauty was created by the guys at Sick Systems way out there in Russia, and yes it is sick! Check out the Any Forty store fore more collaboration genius.
