Eight Hour Day

Recently, Nathan Strandberg and Katie Kirk of Minneapolis-based Eight Hour Day came through Austin. Quietly, and not so quietly, we’ve been admiring the “harebrained scheme” (their description, not ours) of selling their home, renting their studio and setting off on a year long search for design and inspiration.

Empty Nest Syndrome

The excitement of going live for both our clients and the studio is palpable. It’s graduation day! And then it’s out there, and there is less communication between us and, in this case, W2 Design Build.

Being Schooled

One of the reasons I love Lana Lê is because her mad baking skills are rivaled only by her illustrative talent. She is a powerhouse and we recently engaged her badass talent for not one, but two clients! Included here are a few examples so you can see for yourself.

I also am also crazy about diacriticals, and lucky duck, her name employs the crown jewel, the circumflex. You’re ready to be schooled?

Right Now

Understatedly powerful, the TEDxAustin 2011: Right Now print collateral system was driven by intersecting ‘smart’ and ‘delightful.’

Kata Soul

In Austin last week, we shot Kata Eyewear’s 2011 campaign. With a location as fine as the Hotel Saint Cecelia, we had to collaborate with some great talent. Michael Thad Carter and Lauren Smith Ford are to name but two.

Baudrillard’s Dream

Taking a photograph of someone taking a photograph? How postmodern and fun and in this case, delicious!

Mad Props

February’s Vogue JUST hit the stands and our client, jewelry designer Saundra Messinger, is prominently featured in an editorial spread shot by Peter Lindbergh and styled by Tonne Goodman.

I, too

If we weren’t already thoroughly convinced of Jennifer Hritz’s awesome talent, it was ever-present this past week when she did a public reading.

Party of Love

We *heart* when a long-term client gives us a personal project. So nice, right?
