VENTURES: bonfirebeachkids + hannahmas
John Moore is a designer at the helm of Pencil on Paper Studio. Here he and his team run a fully-rigged , full service set of marketing, branding, and concept design operations for an impressive roster of corporate clients such as Kenneth Cole, Le Tigre, and Hudson's Bay Company. The POP studio brand Penny Stock (see also Pretty Penny Stock, pour les filles) has a great aesthetic and superlative price points.
However, it's the POP-founded surfwear line, M.Nii, that is truly fantastic. Inspired by 50's post-war surf culture and the coasts of Oahu Hawaii; M.Nii has a humorous sophistication and simplicity that lends itself well to soulful surfers, bo-bo beachniks, and their pastimes of choice.
Hannah Henderson is a co-founder of POP Studios and also shopkeep at the ever-charming General Store in Venice Beach. General Store stocks favorites like Gravel + Gold, Baggu, Earth Tu Face, Juniper Ridge, and FSC Barber and possesses a naturalistic and calmly curated vibe -- perfect for a pit stop on a late summer evening.
