CR Survey: Sidelines

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

When he is not designing books for Isaac Mizrahi, Peter Buchanan-Smith devotes his time to his side project, a range of beautifully crafted axes called Best Made. We want to find out what sidelines you have on the go…

New York-based Best Made Co. was founded by designer and author Peter Buchanan-Smith, and outdoorsman and environmental entrepreneur Graeme Cameron. The pair brought out their first range of hand-crafted choppers last year.

But Buchanan-Smith is far from the first creative type to bring out a sideline. Simon Waterfall (of, until recently, Poke) has his Social Suicide clothing range

while his ex-colleague Nic Roope has his Hulger phones


then there is Digit founder Daljit Singh and his soon-to-be-launched range of sausages, Mr Singh’s Bangras


not to mention Sir John Hegarty’s wine


and various creative types are involved in the high-end cycling wear  range Rapha.

But these are just the better-known examples. We want to find out if any of you also have sideline projects, or if you know of others who do. If we find enough interesting ones, they will feature in a future issue of the magazine. So, please let us know in the comments below, with links.

We want to know what you get up to when you’re not designing/art directing etc etc (or reading this here blog…)
