DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 10:08 am

We recently designed, wrote, lettered, and produced a poster to support and benefit Doctors Without Borders. This was part of a large platform, Posters Against Ebola, which fights against the recent Ebola outbreak and was organized by Maribeth Kradel-Weitzel.

100% of all proceeds from all poster purchases go directly to Doctors Without Borders. We’re hoping to raise money for the heroes as they aid many people in need and we thank everyone who has purchased a poster so far… Your contributions and donations are very much valued and appreciated!

Our poster design was hand silk-screened by Roman Hasiuk with silver metallic ink on French Paper. Take a look below, and make sure to learn more about the project and see other poster designs here: http://postersagainstebola.com/

AIGA PHILADELPHIA NIGHT CAPS

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 9:38 am

AIGA Philadelphia has a new podcast series called Night Caps. Every episode is recorded in front of a live audience, has a different panel and focuses on unique subjects relevant to the design field.

I was recently invited to speak on the panel of Episode 2 in Season 1 titled “Full-time to Freelance”. Jason Marziani, Saul Rosenbaum and myself spoke about industry-related things designers should consider when transitioning to working for themselves.

Below are some photos from the event take by Fabienne M Photography. You can listen to the podcast episode here:

AIGA PHILADELPHIA MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 8:26 pm

I recently signed up for a unique opportunity to give back to the Philly design community by mentoring an emerging designer. How could I pass this up? It would’ve been awesome to have this opportunity when I graduated college.. if only this were around then! AIGA Philadelphia’s Mentorship Program engages professionals in a short-term, one-on-one mentoring relationship with a design student or recent graduate in the Philadelphia area.
