Cole Gerst, one of our Poketo for Target artists, is by far one of the coolest, most prolific, most humble people we’ve met. It’s an honor that he is part of Poketo and we were super stoked to get a sneak peek into his home and studio. There we discovered what inspires him, checked out his impressive collection of folk art, and got a rad taste his own art. Enjoy!
Cole has made gig posters for bands like Built To Spill, Tokyo Police Club, Death Cab For Cutie, Fleet Foxes, Stereolab, The Shins, Vampire Weekend…. and too many more to list.
Cole’s family has its fair share of birdwatchers. He loves birds–here is a sampling of his collection of unique birdhouses, some of which are made from found objects.
Keep a little bit of Cole wherever you go. Check out his Poketo for Target piece here. I put this on my bag, use it as a zipper pull, and on my keys…. I got a bit of sweet California with me always.
