TAKE A MONKEY TO LUNCH DAY: JULY 21, 2016

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 11:22 am

THE PROJECT: Yellow Pig Day

THE ART: Usually the sign states “Do Not Feed the Animals”, but today is different… Stop by the Philadelphia Zoo, pick up your monkey and take ’em to lunch! Not sure where to go that is pet – I mean monkey – friendly? Well, below are some suggestions. Undecided? Perhaps consult Survey Monkey and dig in.

THOSE WHO CAN TEACH

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 8:03 am

I am happy to announce that I will be in a group design exhibition for the month of September along with many other talented Philadelphia-area designers. Other participants include Ron Cala, David Copestakes, Stephanie Knopp, Alice Drueding, Soonduk Krebs, Scotty Reifsnyder, Kathy Mueller Cantagallo, Tim Ogline, Kelly Holohan, Dermot Mac Cormack, Abby Bennett, Matt Curtius, Maribeth Kradel-Weitzel, Gina Triplett, Allan Espiritu, Scott Laserow, Gigi McGee, and John Langdon. Details below form AIGA Philadelphia’s site:

Have you ever heard the expression, “Those who can, do; Those who can’t, teach” ? AIGA Philadelphia has set out to disprove that theory. These amazingly talented professors from the Philadelphia area have dedicated their lives to training the future generation of creatives while their own work remains at the top of their fields. This exhibition will be a survey of some beautiful—and often award-winning—work produced by those who can teach.

Opening Reception: First Friday – September 6, 6-9pm

Exhibition: Wednesday, September 4, 2013 through Monday, September 30, 2013

SPACE Gallery Address: 72 North 2nd Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

PHILA PENNA SHIRT ON COTTONBUREAU.com

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 5:16 pm

Hi friends, designers, colleagues, clients, family, and acquaintances! My Phila/Penna design was just accepted on Cottonbureau.com. This is a new site from the fine folks who brought us United Pixelworks and Pixelivery. It’s a great site where designers can submit artwork to be put on their site. Once it’s on there, if at least 25 people pre-order the design in two weeks, it gets produced.

Please take a look at my design, consider ordering one or share this with anyone from Philadelphia or Pennsylvania. They’re good quality shirts that are comfortable and, more importantly, made in the U.S.A. Thank you, in advance, for looking, sharing and supporting! Link below for ordering:
