August always brings the end of summer vacation but when we were kids, we couldn’t help but be secretly excited that school was starting. School is cool. The smell of pencils and Elmer’s Glue, planning what to wear on the first day, and buying fun back-to-school accessories in hopes they’d help bring us straight A’s.
So much for that last one but we still get geeked out over cool stuff. To help you get in the school spirit, we’re offering 15% off Blik back-to-school accessories this weekend. Like Chalk and The Not Whiteboard. Available in 24 colors and 2 shapes, these decals can keep track of your “To Do” lists or your doodles.
Another great pick is one of our new Surface Skins. Think of them as a book jacket for your desk. Available in assorted sizes and inspiring designs by Wrapped, Keith Haring and Threadless, working at a Surface Skins desk makes you want to go do your homework.
Starting today, save 15% on Chalk, The Not Whiteboard, Surface Skins and all* your Blik back-to-school needs. Use code SCHOOL in checkout to save through Sunday, August 18.

Thanks to everyone who came out last night for our 10 Year Birthday Bash! We had a blast and suffice to say, we are still recovering. How about you? We had a great time hanging out with some familiar faces and making new friends.
We could not have had such a fun event without DJ Syrena and Germano Kuerten on the decks. It was a perfect summer night made even more perfect with mouth-watering Kogi tacos and deliciously sweet cupcakes from Beckers Bakery.
Y’all are mad prize wheel spinners! Congrats to all the Blik tee and 10 year graphic winners. And for those of you who just got a Blik high-five (on the prize wheel), don’t worry there’s always our 15 year birthday bash…
Hope you had as much fun as we did! More photos coming in the next week.

We are kicking off a new sale with Fab.com on Tuesday, April 17. What’s so cool about Fab? The year-old private sale site features daily design inspirations and sales at up to 70% off retail. We love that the design curators at Fab find truly interesting items that make us think, “now that is cool!”
We curated our own sale to give you an eclectic mix of Blik graphics as we roll into our 10th year. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 17. And if you haven’t jumped on the Fab train, what are you waiting for? This train is leaving the station at 8am PST.
The long week is over and if that’s not enough to get you excited, we’ve got some news that will really get you dancing. One of our most beloved Blik artists, Keith Haring has an exhibit opening today at the Brooklyn Museum. Keith Haring: 1978-1982 is the first large-scale exhibition of his early career tracing the development of Haring’s visual vocabulary. The exhibition includes 155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos and over 150 archival objects.
Can’t make it to NY? Let us bring Haring to you. Launching today are Keith Haring ~ Pattern Wall Tiles. These new, self-adhesive fabric tiles are eco-friendly, non-toxic and free of both PVC and phthalates. Bring a burst of Haring into your home or office with repeating pattern tiles. The wall tiles are available at Blik and at the Brooklyn Museum shop.
As you probably know, Blik is based in the normally sunny and always eclectic Venice, CA. Last night was the Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade and we thought we’d give you a little taste of the flavor of Venice during the Christmas season. We love watching and cheering the creative and crazy boats parading up and down the the canals for the holidays. It is truly Venice at its best – a mix of Venice funk, bohemia, Hollywood and the holidays all in one.
Prizes were handed out for the “Best Decorated Boat,” “Best Lit Boat,” “and Best Dressed Homes & Bridges.” This year we saw lots of “Occupy North Pole” themes. Here are a few photos we took last night. Check out Yo! Venice for a complete slideshow of the festivities.
Have you heard about the amazing SUPER iam8bit art show opening tonight in LA? It’s going to be awesome! It’s coming to you from our friends at iam8bit, who are a production company, a marketing boutique and an events producer. Just think of them as a jack-of-all-trades. With a mandate of “making awesome things,” you know it will be good.
About the Show. SUPER iam8bit is a celebration of art inspired by 80′s video games. Over 100 artists will re-imagine their 80′s gaming nostalgic fantasies through all sorts of media — painting, sculpture, plush, and even some more interactive experimentation. Highlights include an interactive, “retro-fied” Kinect hack from Double Fine super-artist Drew Skillman (see him below in the green shirt). We’re looking forward to that.
Blik is Proud to Participate. iam8bit asked Blik to bring an exciting gaming energy to the space and transform the entire gallery into an 80′s gaming wonderland. Our designers constructed collages (inside each collage are over 50 games including PAC-MAN, Super Mario Bros, TRON, Qbert and Punch-Out) that were blown-up and cut into panels and wrapped around the space. In addition to all the graphics inside, we also designed the window glass graphics and iam8bit’s giant logo.
Galaga’s 30th Anniversary! The show will also feature a special tribute to Galaga’s 30th anniversary with the world’s largest “arcade cabinet” that was designed by us. This giant Galaga will have an enormous projection of live gaming going on at the show. And how cool is this? The player with the highest score will win an original Galaga arcade game.
If you’re not already excited about this art show, here is a sneak preview of a few of our installation photos. This show is going to be the LA art show to attend this summer. But don’t just take our word for it, get over there and check it out for yourself! The show runs from August 11 until September 10. For location details, visit iam8bit.
