Graphic design: Interview with Michael Hawkey (collaboration with A Guy Called Minty)



A few words with Michael Hawkey (A Guy Called Minty)

Introduce yourself..
My name is Michael Hawkey and I’m 32 from south Wales.
I love painting drawing, anything to do with art that catches my eye, my mac, football and fashion.

What does the word “style” means to you Michael?“Style” means to me confidence in yourself and casually wearing clothes that makes you look good but you haven’t tried hard to look this way.

Favourite music?
Love indie, ska anything that makes you feel good... obsessed with the beatles and Ian brown... probably worlds apart in music style... but I like searching for new music too... currently listening too digitalism...

Favourite trainers?Obsessed with vintage adidas rare trainers... love the usual adidas dublins, stockholms etc but all time favourites would be adidas gazelle indoors... size 7 please...

What’s your football team?Love cardiff city but dont go down no where near as much
as is like to see them.

Keep up the good work Michael!!!

The kids are alright

Three Stroke Kids Are Alright"is the name of a campaign designed by Three Stroke Porductions clothing to raise funds and awareness at some of the various rallies and gigs that we sponsor throughout the year.

Some years ago at Three Stroke we decided to start a project called "Three Stroke Kids Are Alright." It is a campaign designed to raise funds and awareness at some of the various rallies and gigs that we sponsor throughout the year.
Its sole aim is to help underprivileged children living in depressed areas around the ...world. Since 2004 Three Stroke Productions  has taken part in a number projects in countries such as Brazil, Italy, and the UK. In November 2009 we sent 200 pieces of clothing, such as Harrington Jackets, Hoodies, and Polo Shirts to the areas of Roccalumera, and Scaletta Zanclea. Two areas within the city of Messina, Italy. Both of these places were badly affected by the Messina floods and mudslides that occurred on the 1st & 2nd October 2009.

THE UNIVERSAL

http://www.myspace.com/theuniversalukSharp dressing Liverpool band The Universal are set to announce their exciting arrival on musical radars up and down the UK with the imminent release of their self-titled debut album on May 17th through Diffusion Music.
Based around the talents of singer, guitarist and songwriter Terry Shaughnessy (who brings a deep seated love for classic MOD culture to the plate), the quartet’s timeless take on vintage British guitar rock has seen them draw comparisons to classic bands The Jam and The Kinks, resulting in support slots with the likes of Ocean Color Scene. The band’s music burns brightly with an intelligent passion fuelled rhetoric that displays their working class roots proudly on their sleeves and serves as a musically defiant call to arms to the nations counter-culture.
With these influences in mind, The Universal tip their collective hat with wide-eyed appreciation toward a glorious musical past yet add a uniquely modern edge to a guitar style that will never go out of fashion. Displaying a natural and stylistic swagger that is aspired to by the many but achieved by the few, The Universal are a band for the people and 2010 is the year the revolution is set to begin!

Plus a special gig which including four Italian bands: Morning Sun (Tribute band from Milan), Supernova (Tribute band from Padoa), Likely Lads (Indie-Rock-Pop from Milan), Smodati (Power pop band from Milan).
