FriendsWithYou Makes Me Smile

friends-with-you-posters

Part of me, at least the section that keeps track of age, says that having a few of these prints in my apartment would be suspect. I’m not exactly sure what questions it would raise, but who gives a shit; I can’t help but smile every time I see something by Miami based FriendsWithYou. If you’re with me on this, they just released these limited edition prints (only 50-100 of each) exclusively via Kidrobot. And they’re pretty affordable too. Plus, each original piece is numbered and signed by Sam & Tury and is the very first series to have the official FWY embossed seal of authenticity. Pick them up here. In other FWY news, they just launched a new portfolio website. It’s the best place to check out all of their studio work—from fine art to commercial design and everything in between. It’s pretty magical.

Make the jump to see some of their commercial work.


“Movie Magic” for Target
Target commissioned FWY to produce an animation based on the characters of their newest brand, Kawaii Island. “Movie Magic” features the famous Target mascot “Bullseye” directing the cast of Kawaii Island through the scenes of many classical film genres.



“Dancer” for Kellogg’s Pop Tarts
FWY and Leo Burnett Agency collaborated to create “Dancer,” a new commercial for the Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts brand. FWY joined the campaign in its early stages and developed the look and design for the repositioning of the brand. FWY produced and conceptualized the TV commercial, storyline, original characters, and overall aesthetic. In case you haven’t seen “Dancer” on television, here you go.


“Harajuku Lovers Fragrance” for Gwen Stefani
In 2008, Gwen Stefani and Laird + Partners commissioned FWY to develop a fun and exciting world for Gwen’s newest lifestyle brand—Harajuku Lovers Fragrance. FWY designed a complete universe for the brand’s TV spots, website, and online advertisement. FWY fully directed the TV live action/animation, conceptualized the script, revised the story, and managed all voice over work. FWY, Gwen Stefani, and Laird + Partners continue to work together on the Harajuku Lovers brand.
