In 2006, they launched Pop Ink, a brand of licensed products produced in conjunction with French Paper Company, inspired by the highs and lows of art and print culture. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session lead by Amara Holstein, contributing writer and editor for _Portland Spaces_, _Dwell_, and _Wallpaper_ magazine.

Pop Ink products have been featured in numerous publications including: _Dwell_, _The New York Times_, _ReadyMade_, and _Communication Arts_, among others.
