The Wild Standard

The Wild Standard is a small Austin-based business designing, producing, and marketing handmade, limited-edition, minimalist art-flags.  Their one-sided, black-and-white designs and emphasis on hand-lettering would not work well in the normal context for a flag:  flying in the wind atop a flag pole.  However, as home decor hung vertically or horizontally on an interior wall they exude a hip, DIY aesthetic.  They occupy a distinctive vexillographic niche.

Here are some of their products, and how they are described.

Title: The Wild. Description: The wilderness. The untouched. The unspoiled. The silence. The feeling of smallness and insignificance. Sunsets, stars, mornings. Fires. Chats that turn your heart over and people who let you see through their skin. Many of the best of moments happen out in the wild…or at least we think so.
Title: Not All Snakes Rattle.  Description:  Quite delighted to have Christian Watson, the fine fellow of 1924us, illustrate this latest release. 'This lesson is an important one. "Not all snakes rattle before they bite." More often than not, there aren't always warnings before something bad happens or alerts when their are good opportunities in front of you, pay attention, stay vigilant and hold on tight.'"
