Let’s Swap

December 16th, 2010 by Justin Kemerling
Let's Swap is a place where artists and designers can swap art for free. It's brought to you by stellar NYC design firm Hyperakt: meaningful design for the common good. The first featured swap: Food for Thought / Jason Lynch
  • If you had to make a sandwich of all the stuff that inspires you to create, what would it look like? That's precisely what Hyperaktivist Jason Lynch has illustrated. Airplanes, good coffee, crafty booze, robots, and loud guitars are all prominently featured in this limited edition 22" x 30" poster, printed in gray and fluorescent orange by Jason on a gorgeous Folio bright white stock.

  • How does it work? There's one limited edition featured swap at all times. If you want it, hit the Swap button and propose what you want to exchange for it. The featured artist will pick their favorite swaps and they'll be posted on letsswap.it with an artist credit. New featured swaps will be selected on a regular basis. There's no accounts, no fees and no fuss.
  • What's the point? As much as we love the web, there's nothing like holding a beautiful printed piece in your hands or putting it up on your wall. We love posters and books and we know there are tons of talented artists and designers that share this love. We're using the web to celebrate print and using art as currency to collect art.
Share and share alike. And spread the word.
