I was really drawn to his amazing metal cuffs, which showcase some unique illustrations and typography from various found metal objects:
As an industrial and graphic designer who has both engineered things and illustrated their components and use instructions, these really caught my eye, especially this one above with assembly instructions.
|These are just way cool...are they gears? They seem too pretty to be!|
|Cool money clip embellished with a key...I love the little exposed hardware details.|
|Colorful array of rings made from street signs!|
|Cuffs made from street signs...check out the reflecting flash! I think I need some of these, you know, for safety reasons while walking out at night. Yeah, that's it...good justification!!|
|Devin makes some awesome leather cuffs too. I have a thing for keys!|
|Sweet curly fork and leather cuff|
Here's the little beauty I picked up at this year's Junk Bonanza from MakeShift Accessories:
Isn't it cool?! It was the last blue one left...and according to Devin, it is made from an antique metal ruler from Italy, and he hasn't been able to find anymore since.
He had a bunch of silver rulers with black letters, but this one jumped out at me for the contrast. Some upcycled objects I love for how subtle they are about what they're made of....this one I love for how much it screams "RULER!" Plus it's one of those tools I use a lot as a designer so it was very "me."
