The Big Sale. It’s Big, and It’s a Sale.

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Well, it’s finally starting to feel like spring, and we all know what that means:

Cleaning!

No? Okay then, let’s try:

Sale!

That’s right. In honour of the season and its renewing, motivating forces, we’ve decided to comb through our collection at the 401 Richmond store and reduce prices on a selection of products, books and magazines for pretty much all of the next month. It’s the inaugural Big Sale, and it’s aptly named, unlike our former annual Sidewalk Sale (which we were never actually allowed to have on the sidewalk).

Big Sale offerings include Bodoni’s mammoth Manual of Typography from Taschen;
$5 back issues of magazines and annuals such as Communication Arts, Archive and Print; a mixture of classic and contemporary products from Nava, Arzberg, Umbra, imm Living and Rosti; information-loaded digital weather-station clocks designed by Philippe Starck; past issues of the architecturally uplifting 2G Magazine (which has – rather sadly – just gone digital with the newest issue, so grab those printed copies while you can); and some elegant one-off pieces of silverware (because really, who says you need a table setting of four?).

We’ll be discounting these items, and more, right through to Sunday, May 26, when we’ll be open for the final day of Doors Open Toronto. (Another excellent reason to visit the 401 Richmond building, and Swipe in particular.)

Another Year Gone By, and Another Year Here to Flip Through Winning Annual Entries and Think to Ourselves, “Yeah, I Could Have Done That” …

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

It’s a new year and time to get back to work (and by work we mean flip through the annuals, slagging the work that won the awards you should have won).

Once again the North American advertising and design industries’ most prestigious annual has been divided into three separate books: Advertising, Design and Interactive.

And, once again, the Club is offering a boxed set for those who refuse to be pigeonholed.
