Vinyl Lovers: Refurbished Record Designer Looking for a KickstartBy Diana Cook
We are pretty much in love with the concept of repurposing items in creative new ways. But we were especially over the moon when we learned about Rekordit. Created by graphic designer Shane Keaney, Rekordit is a frame for displaying record sleeves that is designed to work with IKEA’s Expedit shelving system. Rekordit is still in the beta stage but we have video, images and ways you can get involved in this very cool project after the jump.
Just like Sean, we think records are a beautiful thing. Rekordit will be a great way to show off your personal style and musical taste, while cutting down on dust and hiding messy clutter. And this is not just a “sit back and wait and see if it’s going to happen” idea. If you like the concept, you can actually become part of the development process by pledging money to the Kickstart program that looks to get Rekordit off the ground. Even pledging as little as a one dollar can help things get rolling and net you some sweet booty in the process.
