It wasn't until I started collecting cans seriously that I realized just how many different, independent U.S. brands existed. After a few solo transactions, I met up with Slyle 133 who schooled me on the history and specifics. After seeing his meticulously-arranged extensive (that's an understatement), spray paint collection first-hand, I was hooked. It totally fuckin' blew my mind! Soon after, Slyle 133 and I co-founded Cap Matches Color.

I remember sitting and scouring the cans on display--the classics like Krylon & Rusto'--which, to my surprise, were equally displayed among thousands of off-beat, odd-ball, independent brands. Many of which had the freshest looking graphics imaginable and the majority being brands that were totally unfamiliar to me.

Taking second place, after my collection of Krylon's notch tops, are clean samples of "odd-ball" brands. The examples shown here are, in my mind, a handful of some of the best can designs ever produced. And in terms of packaging layout and typography... it doesn't get much better. Then again, I'm a sucker for any product design from the 50s-70s.

It just seems like back then design was a real craft, using strong arrangements of spot colors that really punctuated the expressive layout, color, and typography of the time.
