NO LOGO

NO SPACE | NO CHOICE | NO JOBS

When Nike says, just do it, that's a message of empowerment. Why aren't the rest of us speaking to young people in a voice of inspiration?

We are looking to brands for poetry and for spirituality, because we're not getting those things from our communities or from each other.

Roberto's opinion

Naomi did not write a book. She wrote a manifesto!

Back in 2000 whilst we were infatuated and wanted to be so closely associated with big cool brands, Naomi was sitting in her canadian office concocting plans to unveil her anti-branding bible NO LOGO.

This book is her call-to-arms against the Big, Hairy, Brand Bullies. And Naomi names names! Yes, she does!–Adidas, Marlboro, American Airlines, Benetton, Calvin Klein, Campbell’s, Disney, GE, Guess, Heinz, IBM, Microsoft, Nike, Oakley, Shell, Sony, Starbucks, Virgin—Yes, they are all here, and many more...

Read this exposé along with a strong Cab–see my recommendation below–and before you buy that Gucci bag.

PAIRS WELL WITH

this classic Napa Valley Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon that opens with fresh aromas of nutmeg and vanilla bean. The wine showcases complex fruit flavors of black cherry, plum, blueberry, and a hint of caramel apple. The rich and balanced mouthfeel finishes with a mocha flavor and velvety tannins.

Stefan loves typography! He is a shy guy but his work is extroverted and sometimes gets him in trouble.
