Interview: How Studio Number One Manifests Meaningful Design

thumnbnail-sno.jpg

Studio Number One is happy to share our recent feature on Busy Beaver Button Co.’s blog!

SNO and Busy Beaver have worked closely together for the Make America Smart Again voting initiative and a Women’s March UNITE pack to benefit Planned Parenthood. Most recently, they hosted a button-making station at SNO’s Women’s March Hang this past January as well!

The article highlights how the philosophy of phenomenology inspired SNO’s creative director Shepard Fairey and SNO’s mission to change the way people experience media and the urban landscape. “Advertising means nothing if a brand’s overarching story isn’t strongly communicated at every level.”

Self Care for Mental Health Awareness Month

Self care is not selfish! In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, ease your mind with this coloring sheet designed by SNO and created just for you.

Nearly 450 million people worldwide are currently living with a mental illness, yet there is still a stigma attached to seeking treatment.

Below are some resources about mental health:

Let’s spread the message that no one is alone and it’s okay to get the help you need.


Women's Rights Are Under Attack

Abortion is a reproductive right and a woman’s right, both of which are HUMAN RIGHTS that are under attack. There has been a rise in extreme anti-abortion legislation across the country, including major bans recently passed in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Ohio. Nearly one in four women in the United States will have an abortion by age 45. Taking away these rights by banning access to a legal and safe abortion not only disrespects the fundamental right a woman has to make decisions about her own body, but also puts women in severe danger all around the world.

In addition to supporting and donating to nationwide organizations such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the ACLU, we’ve provided other helpful resources below that all have information about how we can fight back against extreme abortion bans in these states, donate to local reproductive-rights organizations, and volunteer to support the people impacted by this.

It’s also important to make your voice heard! You can spread the message and show support for women’s rights with free art by Studio Number One here.
