Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

Although you may not know much about American design duo Gluekit, you’ve likely seen their award-winning work in  New York Magazine, GQ, Nylon, and The New York Times. Since 2002 husband/wife team Christopher Sleboda and Kathleen Sleboda have collaborated to make simple two- and three-dimensional designs, airbrush-y retro illustrations, experimental photo collages, typography, and product lines. Then there’s Part of It, Gluekit’s online boutique that works with artists to create cool T-shirts and totes for various charitable causes. Yeah, they’re busy—and clearly in demand.


Add a current exhibition/pop-up in L.A. to the list. "Long Play," which runs through April 13 at the Scion AV Installation gallery, “confronts the evolving role played by various objects. Modernism and the ethos of the youth crew-era pair off with clichès and classical Greek expressions.” Hmm, we’re not sure what that means, but Gluekit’s new limited-edition products and work will be for sale—skateboards, home décor, and bedding.
