Original Peanuts strips ran from October 1950 until January 2000. Covering a five-decade period in which the world changed unrecognisably, creator Schulz was provided readers with a consistent daily commentary throughout this time. Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts characters were often to be found everywhere from the mainstream media to protest art. Tthe callsign of the Apollo 10 mission was “Snoopy” and he’s been NASA’s safety mascot since 1960. On the legacy of Schulz, Tom Baituk wrote, “The influence of Charles Schulz on the craft of cartooning is so pervasive it is almost taken for granted“.
TSPTR is an acronym standing for Truth, Symmetry, Pleasure, Taste and Recognition, the five design principles of Louis Sullivan, American modernist architect, designer and ‘the father of skyscrapers’. His viewpoint was that “form should ever follow function”. The brand takes its inspiration from American counterculture, citing pop culture, war, protest and music amongst the influences it uses.
