The homey Keebz from http://www.gnobrand.com sent me an e-mail to check out his site. I checked, I dug, and now I present it to you. Pay attention! –RTH
Gnomes are characterized as subterranean creatures who inhabit the earth’s underground and protect it’s hidden treasures. The name ‘gnome’ is thought to have come from the Greek word ‘gnosis’ meaning “knowledge”.
Gno aims to stand out in a market saturated with substance-lacking designs. Incorporating a message and relevant theme into every piece of artwork, Gno strives to stay consistent and deliver a truly artistic product from beginning to end.
Here are the three tees kicking off the brand.
An illustration based on the classic “I Used to Love H.E.R.” by Common. In the song, Common makes an analogy comparing the degradation of a woman with the deterioration of hip hop music after its commercial success forced it into the mainstream.
This is an illustration of a young girl yet to be negatively-influenced by the images we see through certain forms of media everyday. The young girl is seen reading a book while media heads hover over her shoulder desperately trying to gain her attention with flashy images of video vixens and the likes.
This design was influenced by Deltron 3030’s “A Brymar College Course”. Deltron 3030 is a favorite here at Gno and a tribute had to be paid to such a classic. The message is to “get creative” by means of upgrading the most powerful computer known to man – the brain. On the back, the text reads “Cause One Day It May Matter”.
