New Nuts Logo!

Hey there Gotye nuts!

We’re happy to announce the official Wall-Nuts logo! This amazing piece was created by a former professional graphic designer and reflects all the ‘nuttiness’ of our community, including our vexed yet loyal mascot!

At this very moment, we’re working on finishing the Redbubble storefront which will include this wonderful new design as well as several other amazing runner-up entries by wall-nut artists! The store should be ready just in time for that slightly mad holiday shopping season, in case you know a nut who might love a little something!

For now, we’ll say ta-ta with The Basics mariachi band at the Mullum Festival yesterday! They’re not fooling anyone 😉

G’day nuts! back again soon!

Social Action and Tees to come!

As we continue to build our new Wall-Nuts storefront on RedBubble, we’re also happy to announce a new social action project for the holiday season!

Nut artist Robin Oliver is creating a beautiful, amazingly lifelike portrait of Gotye to give away to a nut who donates to one of Wally’ fave charities:

http://www.thingreenline.org.au/donate
http://www.givenow.com.au/aardvarkworldwide
http://www.asrc.org.au/get-involved/give-money/donate/

Donate to any of the above charities and be entered to win Robin’s work (PM Robin on FB to let her know you donated to be entered.) Wally has chosen the charities and supported the project, don’t miss your chance at it, and an opportunity to give a little lovin’ to a good cause this season!

Updates on the new tees and logo are nigh! We’re awaiting a final check-in from the ‘big guy’ before we release them officially! We anticipate they will be up within the next few days! For now-here’s a sneak peek at the prospective new logo (to be verified officially soon!)

The Basics Keep Rocking & The Nuts Get Artsy

Hi there Gotye nuts! Been a bit, hasn’t it?

This week we’ll be working on getting our new logo design live and direct, and a brand new array of amazing nuts tees and merch goodies on our new Redbubble storefront! Stay tuned-soon you’ll be able to grab a few awesome Chrissy gifts….and maybe a little something for your nutty self! All proceeds from sales go to the whole community fund to help with gatherings and other events including social action projects.

In recent Gotye and Basics news across the spectrum:
