Press Roundup: Los Angeles Magazine, How & More

Press Roundup: Los Angeles Magazine, How & More

Blik’s very first press piece was in Los Angeles magazine back in October 2002. Almost twelve years later, the thrill still hasn’t worn off so we’re pretty excited to be featured again in Los Angeles magazine this month. In the article the Custom Treatment, Blik and other creative Angelinos are credited with “when it comes to one of a kind, these L.A. artisans are masters.” Thanks Los Angeles!

Did you know Blik does custom? In addition to our retail product line, Blik creates branding graphics and full-scale art murals for clients all around the globe, including local L.A. clients like KCRW, Google and Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. Check out more of our Customize projects.

Press Roundup: Los Angeles Magazine, How & More

In January, HOW magazine shared our The Not Whiteboard with readers. Available in 24 colors and 2 shapes, this modern take on the traditional dry erase board is a hit!

In the mood to freshen up your abode for spring? St. Louis At Home, Spring 2014 recommends Blik Pattern Wall Tiles in A Brighter Background to “make your blah, blank walls into a cozy background.” Eco-friendly Pattern Wall Tiles are “sticky without the icky” and are a great alternative to traditional wallpaper to add color and/or pattern to any wall.

New Geometric Pattern Wall Tiles by Spires.

New Geometric Pattern Wall Tiles by Spires.From the first time we came across the artwork from the graphic designer known as Spires, we became obsessed with his geometric and linear designs. We immediately thought they would look great on a wall – and we were right!

We’re excited to launch the Spires line at Blik starting with these 5 Pattern Wall Tiles:

- blykk lyyzt ~ Pattern Wall Tiles
- byy buy july ~ Pattern Wall Tiles
- dymmnd ryyt ~ Pattern Wall Tiles
- tryypyzoyd ~ Pattern Wall Tiles
- nwwtryllz ~ Pattern Wall Tiles

Yep, those are the product names, but don’t let the crazy names fool you. These are sophisticated patterns layered over other artwork or photos creating a playful illusion of depth and texture. We spy twinkling stars in the dark colors and distressed texture throughout as if Spires layered his geometric pattern over a discarded watercolor.

New Geometric Pattern Wall Tiles by Spires.

By combining shape, color value and texture, Spires’ geometric designs juxtapose both structure and randomness and the mechanical with the organic. Which means there is no wrong way to install these geometric designs. Flip, rotate and apply to your wall at random.

Gyvywyy! Translation: Giveaway! To celebrate the launch of Spires at Blik, we’re giving away 3 sets of his new Pattern Wall Tiles. Comment on this blog post and tell us what you like about these Spires designs. To make it more fun, try to tell us in Spires-inspired language. For example: I love these patterns. Spires translation: I lvv thyys patterns. There is no wrong way to do this, just do your best and have fun.

The Legend of Zelda Comes to Blik & A Heroic Giveaway

The Legend of Zelda Comes to Blik & A Heroic GiveawayYou asked and we answered. We’re thrilled to announce that your #1 requested wall decal – The Legend of Zelda – has come to Blik with eight stained glass wall decals based on artwork from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

The Legend of Zelda was released in the U.S. by Nintendo back in 1987. It was the very first game in the popular series and it introduced a whole new level of gaming combining action/adventure, puzzle solving and roleplaying. The game centered around the playable character named Link tasked with rescuing Princess Zelda and his ensuing adventures. The artwork has evolved since the early 8-bit graphics and in the latest version, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, enjoy the HD cell-shaded brilliance of the gorgeous fully remastered 1080p graphics.

The Legend of Zelda Comes to Blik & A Heroic GiveawayYou don’t have to be a Legend of Zelda fan to like the eight new Zelda stained glass wall decals x Blik. Like traditional stained glass, these colorful decals tell stories from The Wind Waker with six of the eight featuring the hero Link in various action poses using items he acquires in the game – BoomerangSwordWind Waker – GoldWind Waker – SilverGrappling Hook, and Hero’s Bow. The Helmaroc King stained glass decal tells the epic battle between Link and the evil bird while the Princess features Link with the Master Sword after he has defeated Ganon and saved Princess Zelda.

Blik Design/Build: Summer in the City

In addition to custom projects that took place in locations all around the globe, this summer Blik Design/Build also had fun working on three projects that happened in our own backyard – the city of Los Angeles, that is.

Blik Design/Build: Summer in the City

Brighter Collective:
In less than 90 seconds, watch the transformation as a vibrant LA-themed mural makes the new Brighter Collective office in the Campus at Playa Vista just a bit… brighter. Located in an up-and-coming live/work complex that includes the hangar where Howard Hughes’ legendary Spruce Goose was built, this stunning line art mural is a birds-eye view of Los Angeles, from the Santa Monica Pier to downtown LA. Design by Brighter Collective. Manufacture and install by Blik.

Blik Design/Build: Summer in the City

Zip Recruiter:
Influenced by the lush local flora of Santa Monica and non-native bamboo (it’s everywhere around SoCal), our designs bring the outdoors in at the offices of online job board giant Zip Recruiter. Blik CEO, Scott Flora, snapped photos of trees he passes on his daily run along the strand and we “replanted” them in their offices for a nature-inspired décor. Design, manufacture and install by Blik.

Blik Design/Build: Summer in the City

DiMundo Pediatrics:
Did you know Los Angeles is the urban farming capital of the US? LA has a rich history of urban farming, community and school gardens and when Dr. DiMundo, a LA native, came to Blik to help redesign her pediatric offices in Santa Monica, we incorporated her passion for chicken keeping into our kid-friendly design. Frolicking dogs, chicken and mice (oh, my!) welcome children to the clinic and help ease the transition from waiting room to examination rooms. Design, manufacture and install by Blik.
