We’re wrapping up a short but action-packed week here in the studio, after a great Memorial Day weekend spent in part at Rockaway Beach. Another recent NYC excursion of note: we checked out the much-hyped New Whitney Museum of American Art in the Meatpacking District last night. We loved their extensive outdoor space, and of course their incredible views. There are a lot of exciting projects in our pipeline, and one of our biggest focuses in the past few weeks has been our branding for the 16th Annual SONYA Art Walk. The messy, bold, hand-lettered aesthetic we developed for this year’s event is looking awesome across all of the print and web pieces, especially these cool totes. We’re proud to have created the design work for this event for another consecutive year– read our previous blog post on the creative process!
Links That Inspired Us This Week:
• Gorgeous 19th century-inspired packaging design for Pig’s Pearls, a gourmet burger restaurant
• The vintage travel poster vibes and bright nautical colors in this brand identity for Smack Lobster Roll
Around the Neighborhood
As you already know (of couse), this weekend is the SONYA Art Walk! This two-day, free to the public open studios event features the work of over 50 local visual artists in Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Wallabout, and Clinton Hill. Along with displays in the artists’ studios, several local businesses and cafes will also be exhibiting work, and some of the bars in the vicinity are putting on Art Walk happy hours. It’s happening rain or shine (looks like we might have a little of both) on Saturday, May 30th and Sunday, May 31st from 12pm-6pm. Download our map to plan your route, and we’ll see you there!
