The Where, the Why, and the How
Art and science have a relationship that is oft-at-odds, oft-at-ease. The Where, the Why, and the How focuses on the latter. We’re stoked to be included in Also Online’s new book that pairs writers with illustrators in explaining the mysteries of the scientific world. From the God particle, to the theories on why we sleep and dream, this book is loaded with amazing stuff from some great image makers like Jordan Isip, Josh Cochrane and Bettsy Walton. While we can draw pretty pictures (sometimes), we don’t fancy ourselves book reviewers so we’ll point you on over to BrainPickings for their stellar write up.
Over the past few years we’ve tried to distance ourselves from the oversaturated concert poster scene, but Wilco always seems to lure us out of our self impossed exile. Check out this grip of posters we did for their east coast stint in Philly and New York. As always, printed by the fine folks at The Head Light Hotel.
Ahhh…Philadelphia. Our home. A big city and a small town. These days it seems like new stuff is everywhere around these parts and that’s fine by us Philadelphians so long as you leave the good old stuff alone: the cramped streets, grease stains, working class roots, and the two-parts-attitude-one-part-brotherly-love thing we offer in spades. Philadelphia magazine approached us about collaborating on the cover of their annual Best of Philly issue and we knew we had to stay true to this vision of “best of” and do something classic. The idea of replicating an old storefront sign came up right away in our brainstorming meetings, but we were worried about it looking contrived and photoshopped. So we recruited sign painter Gibbs Connors to reproduce our sign typography by hand in gold-leaf and paint to give it a true authentic feel. We are honored to be apart of this flagship issue.
We’re happy to announce the addition of Woody Harrington to our team. Woody joins us a designer after graduating with an award-winning portfolio from Tyler School of Art this past May. A surfer-type from the coast of Maryland, Woody is severely lacking in the facial hair department. However, he more than makes up for it with his totally gnarly coiffure. Have a look. Woody will be working on various assignments right out of the gate and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
Sometimes we keep our noses to the grindstone for so long that we don’t look up and appreciate the amazing clients that come our way. Over the past few weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to work with both The New Yorker and Time on some challenging editorial assignments. What do you think?
