Kill Screen is a videogame, art and culture magazine. Their content focuses on the intersection between games, and other seats of culture, from art, music to design. Warby Parker’s mission is to transform the optical industry, and indeed it has! By offering a Buy One and Donate the other concept.

This collab is super sexy! I mean, by the photos I have provided I know a few of you will love the style. The best-selling frame, the Burke, will be reimagined in a new hue glacier gray. The eyeglasses are crafted from premium cellulose acetate and equipped with lenses that have anti-scratch and anti-reflective coatings—which conveniently reduce the glare from screens. 100

Also, included in the bundle is a custom lens pouch with artwork featuring the Kill Screen logo cleverly deconstructed into minimalist lines and shapes  inside the frame’s temple is an embossed Kill Screen logo in their signature red.

Today August, 23  for the first time ever Warby Parker has it’s own video game called Worbs.  With the help of Highline Games, Warby Parker and Kill Screen designed a physics-based matching game that perfectly captures their shared love of design and entertainment. FYI, it’s very addicting and entertaining!

“The spirit of independence and innovation that we admire in games permeates Warby Parker’s approach to the design of glasses, and the Kill Screen limited-edition glasses are a wonderfully tangible representation of that spirit.”

Jamin Warren, Kill Screen CEO and Founder

“Kill Screen’s creative spirit aligns closely with our own—we both believe in beautiful design, unexpected moments, and not taking ourselves too seriously. On top of that, we love games, and they love glasses. Working with such a respected voice in the video game industry—and a company that understands the impact of incorporating art and culture into their medium—made our first foray into gaming a special one.”

Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker co-CEO, and co-Founder

Summer #Staycations

 

For many, staycations are an option. But at times, staycations are a mandatory part of your work life. At first sure it was hard, but if you love or have a passion for something then nothing can stop you!

Working in the Garment District in NYC has its perks depending on what you do. But for myself, I take on two jobs. One, as an assistant/partner to an elite pattern maker and the other working in production (quality check). Don’t get me wrong I love my jobs, but one of the minor setbacks is not having the availability to fly out. On my free time, I love to photograph just about anything the concrete jungle has to offer and convert that to art through my lens.

Verizon helps me with ALL my staycations. Here’s how,
I love to do overnight trips (close to the city limits) if not picnicking in Central Park or Inwood, among my favorite parks to be in. My Samsung Edge 7 along with the mobile hotspot are an amazing collaboration. Service and speed are what I love.

For those overnight trips, my handy backup battery has enough juice for 2 days. Recently I went on an overnight camping trip near Woodstock, NY. I didn’t have to worry about reception. My camping partner and I were both connected some 10 miles away from the nearest town with full reception. Also, the GPS feature became very helpful as we hiked. We streamed music and roasted marshmallows watching the sun hide away in the mountains peak. When I do stay home, I love to stream music and edit my photography through my cloud storage.
