2012 – 5 Etsy Christmas presents and gifts for the male artist.
by Mitchell Eismont
I am a big proponent of shopping local and from mom and pop style stores. I haven’t been to Walmart to buy something in over 7 years. Anyway this year I am going to post up the 5 best etsy upcycled gifts for him. I will be picking things that you can give to your freelance graphic designer or in-house graphic designer.
What graphic designer or art director doesn’t need this elegant sketch book or journal? It is pretty cheap also for being hand bound leather.
If I had an Iphone (I am still holding out until they make an app that will cook my breakfast and clean my house) I would love to have this case. I would set my phone upside down on my desk and it would look like I was in the middle of a pretty cool project at all times.
I could sure use one of these journals today. Artists are typically passive aggressive, I am sure most graphic designers will have a list of clients in this book.
I think this is a pretty cool idea, not so sure about the design execution. Most of us graphic designers and artists grew up playing these games. This would be a nice personal touch for a desktop.
I like the design of this. I am not sure though it was actually done with wood type. I wish it was. Never the less it would still make a great gift.
