Callaway Open Championship Poster

Callaway is one of the leading golf product companies in the world and their athletes are also leading the way, with Callaway pro Henrik Stenson winning The Open Championship in 2016. For the 2017 Open, we worked with Callaway to create a commemorative poster celebrating Henrik’s win as he prepares to defend his title. The posters made their way to The Open at Royal Birkdale where Henrik signed a few copies that will soon be sent to the lucky winners of Callaway’s giveaway.

The poster is an 18” x 24" five color screen print on French Kraft-Tone Index Off-white 100lb paper. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below along with a process video, and some coverage of Henrik himself with the prints.

Radiohead Berkeley, CA Poster

One of our favorite bands in the world, Radiohead, recently played two nights of shows at the iconic Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, and we were thrilled to create the gig poster for the run. We were inspired by the band’s recent abstract aesthetic as well as the lush setting of the Greek Theatre on UC Berkeley’s campus, and came up with a composition printed on three different paper colors to add some variety to the print edition. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print with numbered artist editions of 20 on each of three different papers - French Pop-Tone Lemon Drop, French Pop-Tone Red Hot, and Gmund Matt 34. The posters also feature a metallic silver ink which you can check out in close up photos of the prints below, along with our initial design exploration.

Mondo Spider-verse Poster

After years in the making, we're excited to unveil our most recent collaboration with Mondo - two posters cataloging the history of the Spider-verse and the many incarnations of Spider-men, women, and characters that have existed throughout the history of the franchise. Both posters are timed editions that go on sale on Thursday, March 23, at 10am CST exclusively through the Mondo web store. The sale runs until Sunday, March 26, at 10am CST. The number of prints purchased during the three day sale will determine the edition size.

The regular edition (yellow) and variant edition (blue) each feature their own unique groupings of 64 characters from the Spider-verse with 75 unique characters across both posters. The regular edition is a seven color 24" x 36" screen print while the variant edition adds an eighth color and is also 24" x 36".

Our New Skillshare Class: Illustrating An Icon Set

We're excited to share our latest class which is now live! In this class you'll learn to design a cohesive icon series, inspired by your favorite movies. The idea behind the class was sparked by our poster celebrating Paramount Pictures’ 100th Anniversary, in which we designed 100 unique icons representing a movie from each year of the studio's history.

From sketching and concept development to final execution, we'll share how to distill complex subject matter into recognizable small-scale designs. You’ll learn how to:

  • Use reference imagery to simplify a complex subject into a single image
  • Create a limited color palette that works across a series
  • Establish design rules to ensure consistency across your image set

From small-scale projects like buttons and pins to professional branding work where consistency is key, students will leave this class with an arsenal of design tools to utilize again and again. This class joins more than 10,000 classes on Skillshare, an online learning community where anyone can discover, enroll, or even teach a class in design, entrepreneurship, and more.
