We had an amazing few days up in our old city, San Francisco. A little bit of work and mostly play, it was great reacquainting ourselves with the city we started Poketo in before moving to Los Angeles 7 years ago. We have a lot of friends in SF still, so, whenever we are there, it’s always a little reunion. We often just run into friends on the street, in bars, or in our favorite shops. SF is like a little village, no matter where you go, you’re bound to run into people… old friends, new friends, and just peeps you know…
Hanging out with artist and starry eyes, Chris Bettig
Illustrator and designer, Omar Lee. Omar was one of the first artists we ever did a tee shirt with back in 2004.
Proprietors Derek and Jamie of Park Life Gallery and Store. By the way, these guys are rad and they stock Poketo!
Olivia “Via” San Mateo of Olive-Route letterpress studio in Berkeley. In my opinion, Via is one of the best letterpress printers out there. She learned from old school printers Ricard Seibert and David Goines, carrying on the old tradition into the new. You know she did all of our letterpress art prints that we have here.
