VENICE, CA: Blik, the innovative maker of self-adhesive surface graphics, today announced the launch of three wall graphics from A Modern Eden, the latest innovative line from FORGE, a creative firm based in Dayton, Ohio. The original illustrations are based on A Modern Eden's "Speak, Piggy!" and "C is for Cow" iPhone applications. The graphics deliver a fresh perspective on the age-old animal kingdom through modern illustration.
Animals Alphabetized : Learn the alphabet in style with 26 letters and matching animals: Antelope, Bear, Cow, Duck, Elephant, Frog, Goldfish, Horse, Iguana, Jellyfish, Kangaroo, Lion, Monkey, Narwhal, Octopus, Pig, Quail, Rooster, Snake, Turtle, Urchin, Vulture, Walrus, X-Ray Fish, Yak and Zebra.
Polar Composition : Cold-weathered pals to warm your heart. Take a dip with penguins, seals, a walrus and a polar bear in their winter wonderland.
King of the Jungle : Enter the jungle with Edgar the Elephant, Presley the Peacock, Henry the Lion and Chaz the Chimp. We predict some monkeying around.
"The clean angles and crisp edges of A Modern Eden's graphics puts a new spin on the classic alphabet and reinvents familiar storybook drawings," explains Blik co-founder Scott Flora. "The new graphics are one of the few iPhone apps that have bounded out of the virtual world into the real one."
Ryan Clark, a FORGE illustrator, saw the need for design-minded products when he was unable to find artwork that fit his style, so he made his own illustrations.
"Working with Blik and creating wall graphics based on Ryan's 26 original illustrations is the next step in expanding the A Modern Eden brand," said FORGE partner Jän Ostendorf. "Our goal was to appeal to parents who haven't been able to design their kid's rooms to fit their modern tastes."
Animals Alphabetized, Polar Composition and King of the Jungle are available online at Blik
