Pacman and Peso | Escape to North Korea
Rap duo Pacman and Peso from D.C. just released a music video for their song, “Escape to North Korea” which was in fact filmed in North Korea. The project started with the two raising over $10,000 on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. On November 16, 2013, Pacman and Peso made their way to North Korea to shoot their video. They’ve been featured on many news outlets such as AP, The Japan Times, Bloomberg News, and many others, but still managed to keep it all under wraps until releasing the video last Tuesday. These guys still only have less than 200 followers on Twitter and less than 300 on Facebook!
Great video in a country known to not be too fond of uncontrolled videoing, a sick beat, and nice bars. Definitely two rappers to watch out for in 2014.
Check them out if you haven’t already and help rack them some likes/follows:
And how old are these guys anyways?
The Secret of Nike’s Success: The HTM Triangle
"The role of design at a company is to allow you to recreate yourself, to allow your company to find a new way of success before the old way fails.” - Mark Parker
What’s the secret behind Nike’s success? The answer is HTM, a three-person design collaboration between CEO Mark Parker, designer Tinker Hatfield, and creative consultant Hiroshi Fujiwara.
In the first article of 032c magazine's brand new website, we read a great story that covers the 032c team’s exploration of Nike’s headquarters to discuss the HTM collaboration, its methods, and impact on the company and footwear design.
Reading well spent!

With bicycle culture and craft in ascendance, bike fever has spread past the artisanal frame builders and fixie fanatics to infest the every man. To wit: the fall launch of the Sandwichbike (anticipated by us earlier this year) by Bastens Leijh’s Dutch design studio, Bleijh Industrial. Leijh set out to prove that there are legitimate new ways to approach bicycle design and put it in the hands of the consumer.
