Had a blast working on some snowboard and apparel designs for the fine folks at Gilson. They custom build and handcraft snowboards right here in Pennsylvania. Take a look and you can find these for purchase at the link below:

LOGOLOUNGE 10Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 9:02 am
We are super excited to have a couple logos picked for LogoLounge’s next book, Volume 10!
Two projects were picked from among the 40,000 logos reviewed by LogoLounge’s international judging panel of design superstars, including Andreas Karl, Aaron Draplin, Von Glitschka, Alex Tass, Chad Michael, Yo Santosa, Emily Oberman, Su Mathews Hale, Felix Sockwell and Alex Trochut. Many thanks to all the judges, and to Bill Gardner, who started LogoLounge!
Below are the logos selected along with some sketches that I dug up to show some of the process. In this case, both logos were hand-drawn and custom lettered. Please take a look below:
AARON DRAPLINPosted by Steve DeCusatis @ 12:50 pm
Many, many thanks to everyone who came out to Aaron Draplin’s events this past weekend at PhilaU! It was a blast to work with Aaron on planning the day and to meet all of you who attended. We’re putting the ticket profits to good use by donating them to ACCT Philly and Philadelphia Community Arts Network. Below are some photos (most by Sam Fritch Photography) from the workshop and lecture with Aaron at the helm.
Aaron also got on the mic with Hi-Res Podcast. LISTEN HERE!
Thanks again to all—especially to Aaron for his energy and expertise over the 12-hour day, attendees from near and far, and all who helped set up and lend a hand. Anyone leave behind a T•TRAXX pencil case or a Contigo water bottle? If so, I have ’em for you! Cheers!
AARON DRAPLIN. PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING.Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 1:00 pm
Saturday, April 1st, Aaron is swinging back through Philadelphia on the spring-leg of his Pretty Much Everything book tour. He asked if I’d host an event and, with the help of PhilaU’s graphic design program, I’m happy to help make it happen. Please see below as we have a logo workshop (very limited seating!) and also an evening lecture (expect about 200 area creatives). Here’s the direct link:
We hope you can join us!
HAPPY STUFFING DAY!Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 4:58 pm
In order to prep for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, Yellow Pig Day assigned me the challenge to create artwork for Stuffing Day. I thought it would be fun to try to jam-pack (aka stuff) all the tasty ingredients for Thanksgiving stuffing into a repeatable lettering pattern inspired by the work of Mario Zucca and Julia Rothman. Hope you enjoy this… And, of course, your Thanksgiving!
