“I’m always on the lookout for original magazine adverts and promo material, here’s a selection of some random pieces I’ve found through the years.”
Hip hop toys
“I’m a huge fan of hip hop and the culture that comes with it, the clothing and of course the footwear. A lot of these toys tend to be expensive and sell out quickly, so it’s always fun trying to get hold of them; our studio is full of toys.”
“I don’t tend to collect anymore, but I always save shoes from projects I have personally been involved with, be it designing the shoe, the box, the insert card or just having worked on the artwork for the promo or launches.”
“I mainly collect these figures as they are a time capsule into football (or basketball, American football, hockey, baseball) shirts from a bygone era. Obviously, old football shirts have blown up in recent years, and I mainly collect the figures with the shirts I like.”
“I have hundreds of art and fashion books; here’s a small selection.”
“I wouldn’t say I collect, but I accumulate stickers! They are a great promotional tool for brands to give away with clothing and footwear, and I mainly try and save them in a box somewhere.”
“Much like the footwear, I always try and save shirts that we have been directly involved in designing or had a part to play in the launch. This is a mixture of my partner at Grammar Studio; Adam Gill’s, and my own shirts.”
