It's April Fools

Who doesn't love a good prank? Well the internet is full of them today. Here some of our favorites! Had trouble learning to ride a bike, well Google's self driving bike will solve you upright issues. Convert that heavy rear suspension to a rigid suspension design. Thinks Geek has a lot of new products for April Fools, I like the flavor of the day calendar. Google combines your favorite aspects of books and e-readers with e-books. Why stop training when you pump up your tires,...

Designing Analog Forest - Influences

Analog Forest is motivated by a huge community of amazing people and companies. We hope to build a product and community that can live up to our inspirations. All designers seek creative freedom and the ability to product quality work. Many of us rush work out that we are not happy with to keep clients or bosses happy. We look up to designers Benny Gold and Aaron Draplin for achieving great creative freedom and their commitment to putting out quality work.  We would not exist without design communities like those developed and supported by Tina Roth...

ISPO Munich Color Design Study

The ski industry has long been the place where fashion meets function, boundaries are pushed, and the trends and color palettes that come to dominate the entire outdoor market emerge. It's a common thread to hear outdoor sports designers point towards ski as the trend makers a year or two ahead of the curve. ISPO Munich is one of the largest outdoor sports tradeshows — some 2600 exhibitors in total convene for three days in a mix of high fashion, ski, outdoor sports, manufacturing, and textile sourcing. The show lends an unparalleled look at upcoming design trends, and it came...

Empowering the little guy!

Analog Forest is a very very small company. Currently we are three people working part time, while still having full time jobs. We all happen to be freelance creatives who think everyone should have the ability to do the things that they love. Our limited amount of time that we have personally made us realize that more companies need to exist to help ideas, people and designers get things to market with less personal responsibility for the logistics. This is one of the main reasons we started the Analog Forest, helping other creatives create things they care about and...

The Ungendering of Analog Forest Designs

We screwed up. When Analog Forest made its debut but a couple of short months ago we released an entire line of in-house designed clothing featuring different designs and colors applied to women's and men's cut clothing. This was a mistake, and we're not too proud to own up to it. Art should not be gendered, no matter the predominant sales trends or our own deep ingrained societal biases. From here on out Analog Forest designs will be available on men's or women's cut clothing no matter the design or colors or ultimate sales, it's just the right thing to...
