Neuarmy Surplus

In early years of research on the www, I predicted that creatives would seize the day – and start selling not only their skills but ‘goods’ – without intermediaries.

Excerpt of a poster provocative enough!

_______

I have know Ryan Katrina aka Neuarmy for over a decade (at least).

What I admire most – is the fact that he has taken charge and sourced his graphic design – typographic skills to launch a brand named Neuarmy Surplus that produces wood signs – limited edition shirts – pouches and duffle bags.

Hand-drawn – hand-painted/printed !! And that branding suite!!

For Office Use Only

For Office Use Only is a graphic and interactive design studio hailing from NYC. First discovered their work back in 2004 – we are 10 years later – they are steady holding pace.

Vast difference? More experience and expertise warranted garnering high-end cultural mostly entities and projects.

They are good. Very very good.

20 Years ago

I remember – when we ‘upgraded’ to Netscape (and proudly own a ‘hard’ copy).. don’t recall which browser we were using prior in ’95. I recall vividly Bill infamous: "I don’t believe in the Internet" and the big ensuing vicious attack by M$.

Epic and devastating.
