We’re very, very psyched about the latest addition to The Uncollection by way of our Unconsumption Artist Series, in which some of the brightest creative-DIY lights around make use of our logo in super-cool reuse projects.
This time around we’re lucky to have Christine Schmidt, of Yellow Owl Workshop, and author of the recent book Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques + Truly Original Projects. She made the delightful video above.
Create your own stationery and envelopes with discarded paper. Created for Unconsumption by Christine Schmidt of Yellow Owl Workshop. Download Template here. For more fun projects pick up the new book: “Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques +Truly Original Projects”
Junk Mail Stationery (by Yellow Owl Workshop), features music by Still Flyin’.
As Christine notes, the Uncon logo could be used in any number of the projects she’s created & collected:
The book is full of creative re-use projects, and this one is just the beginning. Use the Unconsumption logo to adorn old bottles with image transfers made with packing tape. Carve your own Unconsumption logo stamp that you can use on almost anything, or embroider your own consumption logo polo shirt that is far cooler than the original preppy horseman.
But this one really is particularly cool. I love the way she’s interpreted our famous Mr. (Ms?) Cart logo! (See below.) I also love that the project involves doing something useful with file-folders, of which I personally have a surfeit. (If you missed the link to the downloadable PDF template for the project, it’s here.)
Check it out and please help us spread the word!
Thanks so much Christine!!
