Friends With You is magical. As a Miami-based artist collaborative, FWY creates everything from illustrations to full-hotel-room designs, mall installations, video, air balloons, animation, and playgrounds. I’ve admired FWY since I saw their toys at the NY Kid Robot store – the simple shapes and bright colors drew my eye instantly. I have their soft hardcover book (Friends With You Have Powers!) and flipping through its glossy pages lifts my mood every time (it’s artsy enough to be an adult book.. with a vibrant, kid-like cover, of course). Hotel FOX in Denmark is also worth checking out for full rooms designed by FWY and many other talented artists.
