Ever hear the sound of your own voice and think it sounds super weird? Welcome to the next hour and change of our lives!
We had the supreme pleasure of spending a cold winter January evening in our studio in Friendship talking with the awesome duo of John DeGore and Carl Hueslman from AIGA Pittsburgh‘s creatives-interview podcast, Creative Briefs.
And now the (thrilling! chilling!) interview with us is live! Click here or click the above to listen in. John & Carl asked really great questions, and we also took some super fun question from the social media universe. And you *know* that’s always a good time.
Check out AIGA Pittsburgh’s Creative Briefs on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and the Creative Briefs homepage here with the full archive of their interviews and blog posts too.
Creative Briefs also invited us to utilize our pinning skills too and create a Board on Pinterest with fun stuff from things that came up in our interview too. Yay fun! See our Pinterest Board with some of our history and influences for Creative Briefs here (or click below!)
Pittsburgh is BOOMING these days with smart, creative and cool people. When I first moved here on a whim many years ago, Pittsburgh was a perfectly nice city across the state from my home in Philadelphia. It seemed like an easy move to test the waters of living somewhere else.
Now? Pittsburgh is wicked awesome. And one of the new avenues of documenting and sharing the many ways in which this city has organically become a vibrant hub of creativity, design and culture is 412Creative. Utilizing multi-disciplinary talents of their own to showcase the same going on and growing around the city, 412Creative describes themselves as:
“Devoted to showcasing smart and effective design and advertising. The website was motivated by a nagging question, one that pops up frequently when looking through magazines, surfing the Web or watching the news: “Who did that?”
To that end, we’re incredibly honored to have shared a recent Saturday with 412Creative’s Elvira Eichleay and Joey Kennedy so that they could put together this wonderful piece on our studio, our process and our creative lives in Pittsburgh.
To read the full interview profile and see many more lovely photographs by Joey Kennedy, just click here and visit 412Creative! We can’t wait to hang out again soon!
New Belle & Sebastian UK Tour poster, 2-color & all hand screenprinted. (Click for more info or to purchase.)
Huge big yay! So excited yet again, we just can’t help it. Belle & Sebastian are pretty much my favoritest favorite band, and have been for well close to 15 years. So, we’re beyond-all-reason-honored and thrilled to have been able to design and hand screenprint their limited edition 2010 United Kingdom Tour promotional show poster (our 4th poster for the lovelies from Glasgow).
Write About Love, love.
Simply put? They’re the bestest.
This time we did a blue companion poster to our North American Tour Poster (See it HERE) and the start of a love letter is my all hand screenprinted poster for the fantastic Belle & Sebastian with peacock blue and midnight black hand-mixed acrylic silkscreen inks. An Artist’s Edition of 100 is available here, and are signed & numbered (by me, strawberryluna) so I will have a limited few available for sale. Size: 16×22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.
This poster will be available at shows on the UK tour dates, and here as I have just a portion of the run available for sale here, so they will go quick!
