Introducing Dusko: a lifestyle brand for the design-conscious by InVision's Tomas Jasovsky

We would like to introduce a lifestyle brand called: DUSKO, they sell products that includes high-quality cotton t-shirts, limited-edition accessories, resilient leather everyday gear and more. Behind the brand, we have its own Tomas Jasovsky who is a Creative Manager at InVision. What started as a small project a few years back now taking on another level with a setup of Tomas's own proper workshop. Let's take a dive! In their words DUSKO is a lifestyle brand; unchained and never limited by trends, materials, or technology. Together with true craftsmen like Analog Bros, Mr. Wood, and more, we meticulously work out every possible detail to make sure each piece is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. As they say, the devil is in the details! It’s those finishing touches, from button placement to product packaging that can make or break the feel and functionality of a product. DUSKO products include high-quality cotton t-shirts, limited-edition accessories, resilient leather everyday gear, and more of the stuff that keeps you going. Each DUSKO product is made to be both inspiring and functional: there’s nothing here I wouldn’t want to use every day. After a few months of late night hustles, weekend meetings and photo shoots with some really awesome people, the team and I are happy to announce our official launch 🚀 First, you’re probably wondering… why the hell do we need another hipster looking apparel brand, am I right? Video A few years back, my girlfriend and I launched a small project with some very limited edition hand-sewn wallets called madeindays.com. This was just a small taste of what it’s like to make a handmade product. And honestly, I enjoyed the heck out of it. From the whole design process to the creation, marketing and distribution. It has been a few years since then and a few personal projects later, but it’s been worth the wait. It’s exciting to finally have a proper workshop, complete with all the big boy machines.

The Scratching Art of Mark Evans

I've seen a lot of different medias being used to create artworks, but from time to time, an artist appear with something really fresh and impressive. Mark Evans is a really talented artist that use knifes and other sharp tools to create some really outstanding artworks on big pieces of leather, check out. If you want to know more about Mark Evans and his artworks, please acess his Website. His art studio is like no other. There are no half-squeezed tubes of paint, no canvases or watercolour brushes, but instead, half a dozen bull hides hang from the ceiling above a wall of knives that would make Jack the Ripper rub his hands in excitement. But brutal slashing couldn't be further from how Mark uses his razor sharp tools. He's carved a different path entirely. Whilst technology has surpassed man's needs, Mark Evans seems to be a modern day throwback to the prehistoric ages - man with knife makes art! After having studied Fine Art in London, a freak accident led to Mark's discovery, (or man's re-discovery) of a modern yet primal approach to create art. Mark hand-etches leather hides to expose varied shades of suede, he carves and cuts through the leather surface to create his epic pieces (Mark's Website).. He selects and imports animal hides from all around the world and has perfected the leather tanning process, a key element to achieve the varied tones, which are integral to the overall composition of the piece itself. The process takes surgical precision, incredible patience and immense attention to detail as Mark removes less than a tenth of a millimetre of the leather surface. Man has crafted leather since time began - it's the stuff of cavemen, warriors, cowboys and rebels - leather has always been considered cool..always! Mark has spent over a decade developing and perfecting his technique. He believes in continually pushing the envelope and insists there's always scope to learn and develop, such as finding a new knife or cutting tool which renders a totally different finish on the leather. Over the years Mark's knife collection has grown to include an Egyptian Neolithic flint knife (circa 5000 BC) and a World War II Officer's knife but the blade most precious to him is his first ever pocket knife, given to him by his granddad as a 7 year old boy (Mark's Website).
