Doomsday Vault to Store Invaluable Seeds and Air Wear Products

The 'Doomsday Vault' is a facility on a remote Island in Norway that is storing all the Earth's seeds in case of Armageddon. A person from a nearby island in the city of Longyearbyen recently ordered an LYR Air Wear item. I had to look up the location, and was intrigued by this city on the edge of civilization. I'm not sure how many tourist gifts exist for Longyearbyen (78 13' N!), but I'm glad Air Wear is now one of them.

There is more about Longyearbyen and the Doomsday Vault on Wikipedia:

National Geographic Traveler magazine in Dallas Airport

I was en route this past weekend to Santa Fe, NM, and saw a copy of National Geographic Traveler on a shelf in Hudson News. I have to admit: it's fun to see our products in magazines on shelves around the country and world.

New Air Wear Hang Tag Design

This is the latest Air Wear hang tag design. The front shows the branding direction that Air Wear will take in showing people surrounded by their life journeys to different international locations. In this example, the tag shows designer Jason Solarek and some of his life experiences. The back of the tag lists some of the current designs, and at the top there is a small map showing Air Wear's corporate location in the East Village. If you've read the Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, then you'll be familiar with the theory that people like to see maps positioning them to what they're interacting with.
