Hey there, fellow artists! It’s the Imikimi Team, back here one again to share with you a truly awesome website. Here at Imikimi, we absolutely love all things to do with art, design, and craft. So today we’re going to share with you a great combination of those things, art and design transported into the realm of craft and physical objects. Today is all about 55 Hi’s.
Spawned from the mind of Ross Moody, 55 Hi’s is a collection of prints, posters, greeting cards, stationary and more, all with the purpose of brightening your day. You’ll be hard-pressed to find much within the “doom and gloom” category here, as all the prints inspire you, making you laugh, making you feel. This is what sets 55 Hi’s apart from a vast majority of other sites which contain all sorts of tough and mean-looking designs. Here instead, 55 Hi’s is all about smiles.
Directing your browser on over to the 55 Hi’s website, you’ll immediately get an awesome glance at many of the different designs Ross has up for grabs. Go ahead and click through some images in the preview slider to take a peek at a few to get the feel, then go back to the top and click “Shop” to see the rest of the goods.
Here you’ll find prints, stickers, computer wallpapers, calendars, stationery, and more. Keep in mind that many of the items are only available in limited runs, and therefore you should act quickly if you see something you like, because you just never know if it could be completely sold-out the very next day. And once they’re gone, there won’t be any more print runs, ever!
For instance, take a peek at this gorgeous pair of prints Ross offers, Lock & Key. This is a perfect gift for two lovebirds. Or check out The Ampersand Collection if you love typography and want to see a collection of work by 10 artists. Or if you’re feeling particularly cheeky, go ahead and pick up some Facebook Dislike stickers and cast your vote as to what’s not-so-awesome in the real world.
All of the prints are either created solely by Ross, or also in collaboration with another. This helps to maintain a sort of uniform sensibility and aesthetic unique to 55 Hi’s. You can find out a little more about Ross Mood on his very tongue-in-cheek “About” section, including his proficiency in pancake making.
As always, we want to thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by the official blog of Imikimi. Be sure to let us know what kind of features you’d like to see in the future, and we’ll do our best to incorporate that into what we already do. We’ll have more fresh content soon! Until next time!
