city find: say it right
these birthday cards will never see a trash can.
Seriously awesome designer, studio, brand, and just plain cool dude Ashkahn Shahparnia is responsible for a collection of cards that I literally want to cover my apartment walls with, because, yes, they are that good. From birthday cards (“Fuck It Let’s Party”) to thank you cards (“Thanks for the Hickey”), to love notes (“I Love You More Than Being Seventeen), these paper messages with super rad illustrations are the best things ever, for every situation. The coolest part? You can go through his site (which is also freaking awesome--think smiley-face-mouse-hovering just like your Geocities page had in 1999) and scoop up a bunch at once, so you’re never going to a party empty handed again...okay, so I’m never going to a party empty handed again. (P.S. We’ve also got some Ashkahn cards for sale in the NYLONShop, so make sure you check them out here!)
