Curators Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung launched the (charmingly named) Poketo out of a desire to make great art accessible to the masses. Less a company than a network of far-flung artists and creative types, Poketo produces slick T-shirts and their signature laminated wallets adorned with designs by an impressive roster of up-and-coming artists. In addition, Poketo is regularly anointed by the coolest bands —Weezer, the Shins, Arcade Fire—to produce their official merch, and is expanding further still into groovy graphic housewares like plates, pens and pencils, and lampshades. The results are truly accessible: priced within reach of even non-hedge-funder art connoisseurs, and available at their online store. See poketo.com.—Zoe Buck
