New Found Original

I was recently in touch with the guys behind new online shop New Found Original and love what they do. The online shop, set up by Jo Murray and Dominic Bell, sells a carefully selected and ever-changing collection of graphic products – tempting to both graphics junkies and normal people alike.

The two graphic designers founded the project with the idea of selling new, found and original items chosen for their graphic aesthetic. The shop always displays a concise range of products chosen by Jo and Dominic’s beady eyes for the quality of their design, whether it’s a beautiful vintage item with bold, colourful typography, or an exciting collaboration with an up and coming designer or artist.

They told me what their favourite products are and why:

Jo:
I love the hand screen printed Ping Pong tote bags (above). I love the play on words, with Ping on one side, Pong on the other! It imitates the game! And they come in perfect red and blue ping pong colours…
I’m also really pleased with the Ryvita paper bags I found (below). I love the 2 colour print, the type and illustration. They have a shopping list on the back which I would definitely use and nice type detail on the sides.
Dom:
It has to be the letterpress coasters (below) – I like the use of colour, the tactility of the letterpress print and the character of the birds.

I agree with Dom.
