The perfect gift for a world traveler (or anybody who wants to go to jail) – Evan Roth‘s T.S.A. Communication…
From the Web site:
T.S.A. Communicationis a project that alters the airport security experience and allows the government to learn more about you then just what’s in your backpack. Thin 8.5 x 11 inch laser-cut sheets of stainless steel comfortably fit in your carry on bag, simultaneously obscuring the contents you don’t want the TSA to see while highlighting ideas you do want them to see. Change your role as air traveler from passive to active.
Here is what the T.S.A. see on the x-ray monitor:
I hope they are customizable one day because those aren’t the comments I really had in mind…
Sorry I have been MIA but I went on an amazing trip to NYC with my mom to, well, you know…. bond. And bonding to us means shopping, eating and sleeping (in any order). A lot.
So while we were bonding I ran into my one of my heart throbs… Pantone. You know, Pantone! The literal “authority of color” and creator of those cute little color chips. Ever since I can remember, I have coveted the Pantone color bibles… pages and pages of beautiful colors that melt into the next. Yum!
Anyway, I ran into Pantone when we popped our heads into Uniqlo— an always packed clothing store in SoHo with gigantic front windows that flood the rainbow of clothing colors out onto the street. I found that now 20 of those amazing colors are born from a partnership with Pantone which made those neatly folded sweater wall displays even more tempting to mess up as put every color up to my face. “How do I look in this one?” Brill!
So when I got back home I started e-stalking Pantone and found that Mango‘s spring/summer line included the New Pantone Bag — which, despite my feelings for Mango, was quite lovely due to the gorgeous colors!
It seems as though my dear Pantone gets around.
The point is — when a brand partnership makes sense, I am all about it… especially when it involves by beloved Pantone!
