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.

WORDS TO LIVE BY

We recently contributed some “Words to Live by” (AIGA’s words – Not ours) to AIGA Philadelphia’s Mentorship advice book. Always be a student, and – like, some other valid stuff.

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.

FEEDBACK 18

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 5:18 pm

Occasionally we get asked to review portfolios, sit in on a university critique or give a presentation to area designers. The images below are from a recent portfolio review with AIGA Philadelphia. We took a look at print and interactive assignments from graduating seniors and helped focus their projects and overall presentations. It’s a great evening of design and networking with fellow colleagues and upcoming talent. Thanks for having us!

WeWork Logo Interview

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 10:05 pm

Kylie Ora Lobell recently interviewed us for WeWork and asked us the importance of a strong logo mark. This is one of those topics we can certainly talk about for a long time…We enjoyed answering many questions on the subject matter and some of our thoughts made the post. Interested in a new logo design? If so, please let us know! For now, take a look and read the WeWork Creator article here:

YELLOW PIG DAY

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 5:01 pm

Our friends at Yellow Pig Day (a website specializing in celebrating weird holidays) asked us to develop some artwork for recent holidays. We’ve been tasked to create something — an illustration, video, photo, animation, etc. — for Polar Bear Day, National Angel Food Cake Day and America Recycles Day. Below are the results:

USB Card promo

Posted by Steve DeCusatis @ 10:24 pm

Jeff Levinson and the fine folks at USB Memory Direct invited me to participate in making some promotional business card-sized USB flash drives. I decided to apply a couple different typographic/lettering images to them and think they turned out really great. Plus, they hold 8 gigs each! I’ve already given out a couple to designer friends who really seem to like ’em… If you want one, just let me know. Take a look at the pics below:
