below is my oh so creative, graphic designer bro in law, ben. he and his buddy, pat, co-own powerhouse factories.
their business has blown up over the last couple years and become so successful they now have a team working for them. ben
asked me to come shoot their newest merchandise and update the studio shots since it’s changed so much since the last time.
this place ooooozes creativity. you become inspired just by stepping through the front doors. adam and i are constantly sayin, “dayummmm we wish
we worked in a place like this every day!!!” it’s every artists dream, really.
they are hired by local venues to promote bands coming in town by designing and screenprinting badass rock posters. anyone can buy their posters off their
website though. we have 7 or 8 posters hanging in our house and i couldn’t tell you the first thing about any of the bands. but they’re pretty, and i like
them.most of my family and close friends have PHF posters hanging in their house too. and so should YOU. it’s hip and totally the cool thing to do.
they also screen print tshirts. this is where we slaved over our Loft(3) tshirts, which by the way are still for sale!
my favorite part of PHF is this little gem right here. when they signed the lease a few yrs back, our family helped paint and get them settled. i was
given the project of the ‘test print wall.’ i spent a few days cutting up, getting VERY sticky from glue, hanging posters high atop a 20′ ladder. they
said to do whatever i want and have fun. soooo i did. BOOM. our next house will have a test print wall.
the creative team.
you’re welcome, matt.
besides the posters, our family is constantly rocking out powerhouse clothing. i am NOT EXAGGERATING when i say, ben, adam, and ben’s
sister sarah, wear their hoodies DAILY in the winter. it’s so bad that it’s like a uniform they aren’t allowed to take off. but i will say, they are the most
comfortable hoodies i have ever worn, so i kind of don’t blame them. i’m thankful there is finally a new option in color!!! they also have cool tshirts!
phf also has holiday parties to come hang out and buy merchandise at as well. the place is in newport, ky and is always welcome to walk ins.
drop in and buy a poster or some clothing, or just be inspired! heart, melanie
