Back to the Futuro

Traveling through cyber space can lead to some disparate inspiration. Whether strolling el barrio digitales on Google Maps or admiring Greek gods, the web is full of unexpected gems. Great scott, indeed.


Chicken Doodle Soup

There's this guy in our office who doodles weird stuff. Sometimes it's creepy, most of the time it just makes us laugh. Hide your Trapper Keepers!


PTMK Office Tour

Here's a quick taste of the knickknacks, thingamajigs and whatnots that fill our space and inspire us every day.


Krunk Mail

Don't just throw away those cable bills and credit card pre-approvals, many junk mail envelopes are hiding some of the raddest patterns we've ever seen!

Meant to conceal sensitive information traveling by snail mail, these wild designs have made their way into our mailboxes. So we collected them, ripped them open and scanned them for your viewing pleasure.

There are probably some patterns waiting for you right now, so start diggin' through that junk mail and letter rip!


Out of Memory

Here in the office, we've been having a lot of fun with Google Maps recently. Its (fairly) new 3D feature creates some truly creepy and surreal images when partially loaded. So we scoured the digital globe and started screenshottin' away. We've taken a few of our favorites and created a series of new 'old' photographs.

See if you can match these eerie pictures with their real world locations.


Badges, Badges, Badges

Badges, badges, badges! We do need some stinkin' badges!

We’ve always loved the style and variety of vintage bicycle badges so we’ve collected a bunch of our favorites. From simple typography to outlandish detail to the pitch perfect illustrations, these badges are probably the prettiest thing you’ll find on two wheels.

Ride hard. Ride fast. Design sweet badges.


Yesterday's News

Say Mac! Have a look see at this swell vintage advertising typography. These were excavated from Zach’s collection of old Saturday Evening Posts and Boys Life magazines, which were originally his great grandmothers from the 1930s. There’s a couple of real doozies here!
