Power to the Parks Capsule Collection And Print Now Available!

The 3-piece Power to the Parks capsule collection by Studio Number One and Parks Project is now available for a limited time!

The collection includes a unisex t-shirt, tote bag, and custom 32 oz. Nalgene water bottle, all showcasing original graphics designed by SNO. This series expresses the political energy of the ‘60s and ‘70s, and SNO’s passion for national parks preservation. The visuals convey a sense of curiosity about the natural beauty of our lands and echo an era when impassioned Americans rallied together for change and justice.

In conjunction with this launch, a limited edition print also designed by Studio Number One has been released as well! A portion of the print and capsule proceeds will benefit the National Parks Conservancy Association in their efforts to protect and preserve our nation’s most iconic and inspirational places for present and future generations.

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.
