Official Disney Mickey Mouse Enamel Pin

Being asked to create an officially licensed pin for Disney is an enormous honor. We make it a goal of ours to always visit the enamel pin displays at the Disney Parks in our home state of California, and are always taken aback by the enormous body of work one company has offered to the world of pins. To be specifically asked to create a pin for Mickey Mouse is on a whole other level.

It’s a double-edged sword, re-interpreting an already iconic and perfect design. We didn’t want to steer too far away from Disney’s artistic expression but also wanted to put our own personal spin on the classic character. We pride ourselves on finding the hidden geometry in all aspects of design and illustration, and it’s clear that Mickey is built with a number of geometric shapes.

Just draw three perfect circles and most people will be able to see the vague resemblance of Mickey's head and ears. We took this notion and applied it to our process. Our goal was to celebrate what makes Mickey classic, using a recognizable pose and color scheme, while celebrating the geometry and line work that would otherwise be hidden. We hope we did Mickey justice. It’s the least we could do for such a handsome nonagenarian on his birthday.

Our Mickey Mouse enamel pin will be available tomorrow, February 8 at 12pm Central, exclusively at MondoTees.com

DKNG + Mondo Official Gremlins Pin Set

As children of the ‘80s, we grew up with the movie Gremlins and were thrilled to partner with Mondo to produce an officially licensed set of three enamel pins commemorating the movie. The series includes Gizmo in three iconic scenes including Showtime (Gizmo sings for the first time while playing the piano), Uh Oh (Gizmo hiding inside the motorcycle helmet), and Beep Beep (Gizmo behind the wheel in the Malibu Barbie toy convertible).

The Gremlins soft enamel pins all include a copper die cast finish, and heavy duty rubber backing clasps. Available individually or as of set of three at a special rate. Check out photos of the pins below by the talented Wonderful Mystical. The Gremlins pins are now available in the DKNG Store
