Mario Zucca (colleague, friend and illustrator) and I co-hosted a lecture and workshop at this year’s Tandem Design Conference. Tandem is an annual student-run design conference at PhilaU (http://www.tandem-conference.com/).

Our lecture, Design + Illustration + Collaboration + Integration, covered our journeys since graduating from Tyler School of Art. We discussed being business owners and educators, integrating workflows, and collaborations on many projects. Various work and interdisciplinary collaborations with other designers, illustrators, animators, clients and more were shared with students and professionals alike.

We also led a workshop, titled Exquisite Workshop, which focused on collaborating with fellow attendees to create wildly fun exquisite corpses. We encouraged image-making, collaboration, and media experimentation in this hands-on workshop. The attendees reviewed their work, shared the creations, and then posted via social media for future connections.

We would like to thank the folks at Tandem for inviting us and also thank everyone who attended the events. It was a blast!

NO PLASTIC SLEEVES

Danielle Currier posted our new portfolio and promo book on her blog, No Plastic Sleeves, and we couldn’t be happier! We enjoyed teaming up with Bella Forte for our custom box build, Ali Doucette for printing and binding on our book, and Sam Fritch Photo for the wonderful photography.
