Official Rogue One Magazine Cover

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters this week, and we’re excited to unveil the cover we designed for the special edition digital magazine available exclusively through Disney and Regal Cinemas. The cover illustration depicts a dual image of a newly introduced Death Trooper melding with the Death Star and its main weapon being constructed. Check out the closeup images below to see some of the more intricate details of the illustration, and you can also download your own copy of the magazine when purchasing tickets to Rogue One through Regal Cinemas.

Star Wars + DKNG

This year we had the amazing opportunity to work on two projects for the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A Force for Change is the charitable arm of the Star Wars franchise and along with director J.J. Abrams, A Force for Change partnered with Gallery 1988 in L.A. to create Art Awakens, a campaign in which new art pieces based on the Star Wars universe were sold with proceeds benefiting UNICEF. The campaign launched at Disney’s D23 convention in Anaheim earlier this year where our first print premiered - a 20” x 20” metal print with a limited edition of 150 that were exclusively available at D23 and through the gallery.

The second piece we created is an 18” x 24" five-color screen print that recently premiered at Gallery 1988 along with six other printed editions as well as dozens of original pieces by a range of talented artists. “Resistance X-Wing” depicts the brand new X-Wing fighter from the new film, flying just above the surface of the ocean with outer space reflected in the water. “Resistance X-Wing” was exclusively available at Gallery 1988 but you can check out close up photos of both prints below as well as our initial sketches and photos from both D23 and the Art Awakens gallery show opening.

DKNG on Episode 167 of Adventures In Design

Dan Kuhlken of DKNG is on another episode of Adventures In Design today. We play the Summer Movie Game Entertainment Weekly where Dan goes up against film/tv gurus Sean Mort and Mark Brickey. The stakes are high, valued at $300 per person to be exact, and we bet on this summer’s box office grosses.

Things get a bit more serious in the Circle Of Trust, where we talk about our mutual love for Squarespace and the street artist Space Invader.
