Jack White moves further into art and design with a new venture

Anyone who knows the career of Jack White understands that design is very important to him. Everything he’s ever done from the White Stripes forward has had carefully considered visual looks. Even his roadies have a special strict dress code.

Yesterday (July 28), Jack launched Jack White Art & Design, which is devoted to his artistic ventures beyond music. This includes sculpture, interior design, and, of course, upholstery and furniture, something Jack has been into for decades.

I didn’t know this, but along with his Third Man Stores, and visual design for all his bands, Jack once designed a bowling alley. And a baseball field in Detroit.

What else? The weird vinyl records sold by Third Man. Custom drum kits. White Stripes posters. Box sets. Logos. Film/videos. Photography. A couch. Details of the vinyl pressing plant he built for Third Man.
