Guess who Kate Moross is collaborating with? Don't read the headline, just go on and guess! This London based it-girl of illustration and graphic design has already partnered with infamous UK retailer TopShop, collaborated with her family members who run Moo.com (everyone's favorite business card company) and is currently art director and projectionist-in-residency for HEARTSREVOLUTION, the new boy-girl duo out to steal Crystal Castles electronic terror crown. Moross appears in this month's issue of Nylon
magazine Stateside, and what else? Her designs (in collaboration with Alex Sushon) can soon appear across your proud Portland chest: She gone done designed a new T-shirt for local disco threesome Chromatics! Excitement!
Moross often works with bands—having done advert work for Mystery Jets and T-shirt and canvas bag design for the Kitsune electro band Punks Jump Up—but none until now that Portland could claim as its own. Now Stumptonians have a local reason to be excited by her colorful, often pysch-leaning work.
Here's the Chromatics T-shirt:
And here's the poster for Warm Agency:
Chromatics will tear it up in Europe from mid-April until May. The trio's next Portland date is currently at Rotture on May 30th, but blast the new Soulja Boy single and see if that won't coax them out a bit sooner (the song is reportedly core member Adam Miller's number one request of DJs of late).
Chromatics were also name-dropped today (along with labelmates/Portlanders Glass Candy) in a long story about disco in Australia's The Age. Well worth the read. -Ed.
