Hipstory Presskit

hipstory-A-poster-web 6 with title comma USE

I’m a poser, I’m a fraud, I’m pretentious, I’m an avid coffee drinker, vintage clothing wearer, vinyl spinner, trend setter. bicycle rider…

I’m me. I’m a HIPSTER.


In Hipstory, two suburbanite hipsters take you on a journey through their pasts, where you will meet cave people hipsters, samurai hipsters and even a Dutch coffee trading hipster. You will also encounter recognizable hipster motifs, such as second hand clothing purchases, overly manicured facial hair and being so original it physically hurts. Oh yeah, it also talks about identity and some other stuff. Whatever.
