Bliks Picks: Top 10 of 2013

5 – Christy, Customer Service Superstar
Fishes in Geometrics Pattern Wall Tiles by Threadless and Florent Bodart

- “My grandfather Skippy was a well-known barber, an avid fisherman and had quite a knack for drawing. His barber shop was decorated with fishing decor and photos of his big catches and in between customers he would sit in the shop and hand make beautiful fishing flies and draw scenes from his fishing adventures. I’ve heard stories from back in the day that the only way anyone could get Skippy to close the barber shop for a day was to invite him fishing. I think he would have been “hooked” on the Fishes in Geometries Patterned Wall tiles to “dec out” his shop – as he had quite an eye for style and detail!”

Margo – “Zelda Wind Waker: Sword reminds me of when I was a kid and used to imagine that I was a knight and I would play with my sword.”

Albert – “The stained glass reminds me of church and Zelda reminds me of how I used to play it every Sunday morning.. it was a religion.

BLIK’S PICKS: TOP TEN OF 2012

Similar to the last few years, we are asking 10 Blik staffers to share their favorite graphic of 2012. Did your favorite graphic make our list? If not, leave a comment and let us know.

1. Jerinne, Blik co-founder

Ice Cream Cones by Christy Flora

“We’ve had so many great releases this year but the design I enjoy the most is Ice Cream Cones. Some people might think this is a kid’s graphic but it’s really Pop Art. When you see it on the wall – it’s this bold, colorful, iconic image of an everyday object at large scale – it’s like being at MOMA and would fit right in with works by Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring and other great contemporary artists. And the fact that it comes with an assortment of colorful scoops so you can customize it just makes it even cooler.

2. Thea, Custom Projects Manager

“Really clever design using the names of states to indicate their shape and placement… brilliant!”

Street Artist Moves Indoors: Blik welcomes SAN

Street Artist Moves Indoors: Blik welcomes SAN

Put out the welcome mat, the renowned Spanish street artist SAN is tangled up with Blik. SAN has taken his work indoors and designed a piece specifically for Blik —  with your walls in mind. He makes light of the fact that the graphic is self-adhesive by adding nails and string to “attach” the design to the wall.

Titled “ A Host of Fetishes” the decal is a jumbled and chaotic collection of various objects from a compass, bird skull, broken clock, spindle wheel to dice and plenty of nails to go with it.
