ban.do fun

we take fun VERY seriously at ban.do. so much so that we decided to make a print of all of favorite fun things. say hello to the ban.do fun pattern. this print really says it all. ban.do is everything from roller coasters to disco balls. we love this pattern so much that we put it on some of our favorite new items including our rough draft notebook and our new iPhone case! looking for inspiration? not anymore!

 

pinball hall of fame!

you guys! the next time you’re in vegas watching britney, you HAVE to go to the pinball hall of fame. it’s a giant warehouse (not far from the strip) that’s filled with hundreds of pinball machines dating from the 50s all the way up to today. IT IS SO COOL! the best part? you can actually play them! most of the vintage machines were 25 cents per play and the modern ones were around 75 cents. did we mention that it’s also free to get in? even if pinball machines aren’t your thing, it’s still fun going to and getting inspired by all the fun vintage art. after we left, we started dreaming about opening a ban.do inspired pinball lounge in LA. think confetti floors and disco ball ceilings. anyone interested?
