An Artist’s Union Jack

It’s hard to follow a post on terror, but this bit from Cool Hunting seems highly appropriate.

Fans of Vivienne Westwood’s fashions can now bring her punk sensibilities home with a series of new carpet designs for The Rug Company. Westwood’s tattered Union Jack is unconventional patriotism at it’s best, sprung from a partnership with the British-based purveyers of quality, modern floor coverings. Since 2000, The Rug Company has been tapping fashion, interior, textile, and product designers to create a line of unique rugs. All carpets are available at their London and New York showrooms, come in several sizes, and can be custom-fitted.

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
