As the founder of Strike Gently Co , I deal in pins and patches daily. The Creators Project asked me to pull together a weekly roundup of the best newly-released pins. Most of these will probably sell out. If you like them, smash that “add to cart” button.
Adam Kurtz’s work has a very familiar aesthetic—because he invented it. His stuff is both simple and thought provoking, ironic and sincere. I enjoy his books and pins because I have a real soft side, folks, so don’t bully me please. Use this pin to answer your other questions.
If you’re looking to get some attention on the subway, this one’s for you. It’s got it all—shiny? Check. Rope bondage? Check. Beautiful art by Tina Lugo? Check. Grab one before they disappear forever—Instagram hates sexy stuff.
You just can’t go wrong with satanic imagery: it worked in the 60s, the 70s, the 80s… And, much to the chagrin of your local church group, it’ll never stop. So can you upset your Catholic relatives and appeal to cool kids at the same time? And, in Spanish!?? Yes!
Brace Legs Collective
This new collab set with designer Liam Ashurst just looks fantastic. Brace Legs is very carefully curated with a specific type of design, giving the whole shop a cohesion that I could only dream of. Wear these to remind you of your last camping trip while you walk miserably around whatever concrete wasteland you’ve chosen to waste your twenties in. Maybe I will run away, too.

Strike Gently Co.
Before neckbeards started pretending that memes had gravity in national affairs, they were things we made as socially inept teenagers. Unlike getting laid, memes provided a sanctity and self-satisfaction difficult to find from the comfort of one’s mom’s office. And guess what? Surprise! I made this pin! I love memes! I had to include my own pin in this roundup because it’s been like 75 weeks, and you never know.
Ok, that’s it. Go check out my shop: www.strikegently.co
