Twitter is so dope. So I stumbled across this fresh, up and coming street wear brand, Gno today. Checked out the website and just had to blog about it.
So far, Gno is producing three tees that all contain strong themes and often political message – which is unbelievably refreshing. Check out the images below (click on the pics to be taken to the website), and rather than me writing about it, check the product descriptions, which sum each tee up perfect.
An illustration based on the classic “I Used to Love H.E.R.” by Common. In the song, Common makes an analogy comparing the degradation of a woman with the deterioration of hip hop music after its commercial success forced it into the mainstream.
This is an illustration of a young girl yet to be negatively-influenced by the images we see through certain forms of media everyday. The young girl is seen reading a book while media heads hover over her shoulder desperately trying to gain her attention with flashy images of video vixens and the likes.
This design was influenced by Deltron 3030′s “A Brymar College Course”. Deltron 3030 is a favorite here at Gno and a tribute had to be paid to such a classic. The message is to “get creative” by means of upgrading the most powerful computer known to man – the brain. On the back, the text reads “Cause One Day It May Matter”.
Check ‘em out, and we’ll be sure to keep y’all posted on future developments from Gno.
