sometimes this whole stationery-land can get a bit...girly. haha. you know what i mean though, right? stationery these days features a lot of ombre, floral patterns, bright colors -- it can be kind of tough to pick a notecard that's appropriate for, say, your boyfriend or dad, OR to send a non-girly note if you're the guy sending it. i'm always interested in finding stationery that blurs those boundaries and can appeal to both sexes -- and i think i've made a major discovery in that area: the work of harry diaz.
harry is a guatemalan-born artist living in LA, with a background in printmaking. he earned an MFA in illustration but focused mostly on screen printing, going on to dabble in designing apparel, jewelry and wood sculptures while continually being drawn back to his first love of print on paper.
he just debuted his first line of greeting cards last month, and they are stellar -- harry has such a distinct style, and i think these notecards are the perfect mix of masculine and cool. i got to check out a few cards in person, and they're rad -- i really love the latin american vibe of these designs. you can see the full lookbook here, but these are a few of my favorites:
newsletter. awesome! i love these:
