Part of It makes Brain Pickings Gift Guide!

Posted in Press by Gluekit on December 16, 2009

“It’s never too early — or too late — to introduce the idea of the conscious consumer. And when it’s done with quirk and creativity, it’s bound to engage, inspire and, well, effect change. Enter Part Of It, a wonderful venture founded by illustrator duo Christopher Sleboda and Kathleen Burns in 2007, working with artists to create products for causes they are passionate about.

From Helvetica alphabet t-shirts to a lovely tote bags, profits from these goodies benefit charities chosen by the artists. (Who, by the way, include Brain Pickings darling Adrian Johnson.)

Perfect for: The socially-conscious and design-driven.”

Part of It on Core 77’s Holiday Gift List

Posted in News, Press by Gluekit on December 1, 2009

Kind words from the folks at Core 77 who have put together a gift guide for the fast-approaching holiday season:

“Fundraiser tote bags might be a bit of a bore, but the designs featured at partofit.org provide a satisfying twist. An up-and-coming artist or designer designs each bag, with proceeds donated to a charity of their choice. Our favorites include Ken Meier’s Let’s Be Honest, benefitting Free Press, and Mark Owens’ Inherit the Wind, benefitting the American Wind Energy Association.’

Thanks C77!

Make Some Noise for Part of It

Posted in Press by Gluekit on September 27, 2008


The Make Some Noise tote by Wyeth Hansen was recently featured in the UK’s Creative Arts magazine and looked absolutely sizzling!

The totes are available now from Part of It ($20). The same design on a classic white tee is $28. A portion of the profits from both products has been designated by Wyeth to go to the Fresno Arts Council.

Go ahead, make some noise!

Part of It in Grafik!

Posted in Press by Gluekit on April 27, 2008

One of our very, very favorite magazines in the whole entire world, Grafik, profiled Part of It in their March 2008 issue. We only just got a copy this week, and are thrilled with the way they distilled the founding of Part of It and described the project. Mark Owens’s “Inherit the Wind” bag was featured in their Showcase photo shoot.

Grafik can be a little hard to get in the US (we order our copies from You Work For Them), so we took a couple of snapshots to share. Enjoy!

Part of It in Nylon!

Posted in Press by Gluekit on April 21, 2008

Wow! We are just so psyched about this!

Nylon Magazine features Part of It’s “Inherit the Wind” tote (designed by Mark Owens, $20.00 from Part of It) in the 2008 April issue. We were excited to be featured alongside designers like Tracy Jenkins of Village, Keren Richter, and the good folks at Loyalty and Blood. So many cool totes, so little time!

And we’ve been fortunate to be getting some thoughtful press online as well. Thanks to Urban Socialite and T-Shirt Island for both profiling the Part of It project!

Happy Earth Day!

Part of the American Way

Posted in Press by Gluekit on April 2, 2008


We are super thrilled that the nice folks at American Way Magazine chose to feature Mike Perry’s “It’s You and Me” shirt in a recent column. Part of It was one of six initiatives featured, all of which funnel money toward good causes. Excellent company, indeed.

So if you’re flying American Airlines any time soon, check out the article!

And stay tuned for more new designs– Spring is bringing a fresh crop of goodies.

It’s All Good!

Posted in Press by Gluekit on February 18, 2008




Exciting news for Part of It!

We’ve learned the project is featured in the latest issue of Good Magazine (Issue 009 / March-April) along with some fellow t-shirt endeavors that strive to make a difference.

We’re super thrilled to find ourselves in such excellent company. Good news all around!


It’s a Gas

Posted in Links, Press by Gluekit on December 20, 2007


Just a quick note to thank Gas as Interface for profiling Part of It on their Atmosphere blog!

Lots of nice people have noticed what’s going on here, and written or blogged about Part of It.

Through their links back to the site, we’ve learned about great efforts to chart social activism and the arts… like the Groundswell blog, “dedicated to clever and innovative trends in art and design in activism.” It’s really inspiring to us to see this idea of ours made real, and find that others are on the same wavelength. It does seem as if there’s a cultural turn in the air, that we’re not alone in thinking that everyone has a part to play in collective social change, and that the arts can play a critical role in this effort.
