All Green Everything…

All Green Everything…

Yes, I am starting the all green everything movement. Jay-Z had his run with all black but now it’s my turn. You probably thought I was talking about the environment. No not this time. While I am all for saving the Earth, I’m actually referring to fashion. Spring is here so naturally, I’ve got to acquire a few new items for my warm weather wardrobe.

Respect Magazine Premiere Issue

Respect Magazine Premiere Issue

So I was recently on one of my Barnes & Noble expeditions the other day, which usually consist of me perusing through magazines and photography books for hours. This time around, I just went straight to the magazine section because I was seeking inspiration for a school project and didn’t have much time to find it.

Making of the Blueprint 3 Cover

Great video on how they shot the cover for Blueprint 3. The only thing I was surprised about were the red stripes painted on the instruments instead of just being applied later in photoshop. I knew the instruments were real though.

Peeped over at Limited Hype

That’s Good Business: Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3

That’s Good Business: Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3

Jay-Z . I had to start off that way because Jay is his own entity. He has taken hip-hop to a level I’m sure even he can’t believe. Jay-Z is truly a business and a business man. Mr. Carter has never been one to just release albums

So… Ticketmaster hates me.

So today I tried to get my Jay-Z tickets to no avail. Needless to say,… I’m tight.

Jigga likes Stripes…

Jigga likes Stripes…

Since the alleged Blueprint 3 album cover first emerged, I dug it. The design, the all white instruments, and the three red stripes. It had impact without being overdone… essentially what the root of most graphic design is. It honestly struck me as a Kanye type cover, with it being more toward the art side than any of Jay’s previous covers that I could remember.

 

 

Earlier this week, I saw the behind the scenes video of the Rocawear campaign and Jay had on a t-shirt with the same three red-stripes on the sleeve. 

Then at the start of the leaked clips from the ‘Run this Town’ video the stripes appear again.

 

I just like the consistency in the marketing. Something like a bat signal of sorts. A statement with no words. Saying something while saying nothing at all. Branding.
