This year, Western Washington University set up a mandatory summer internship for each of the soon-to-be Senior Design students. Before we send these rookies back to school, we decided to open the Superbar taps to cap off the last drop of summer with an all-intern mixer. Our summer intern, Zach Sankey, was tasked with creating a mailable invite that tells a story, praises their hard working professor and at the same time made his counterparts a little jealous. Sorry folks, interns and their mentors only.
The Internship unfolds
NEW WORK: RE:PUBLIC RESTAURANT
One of South Lake Union’s finest establishments. Keep an eye out for more photos coming soon or check out their new website we designed here.
Jones Jumble Winter Edition
These fellas are going to be featured in an new book titled Illustration and Design in the near future. While prepping the files for submission, we decided to have a little fun by making them jumble around.
Redbull Helmets at X-Games
It’s always fun to see produced work on T.V! Check out Bobby Brown and Sebastien Toutant reppin’ the Superbig Redbull helmets at the 2013 X-games. We’re glad to see them in action, especially with stunts like these.
We’ll also throw in one from this summer’s X-games at Tinges.
To keep the creative mind from locking up, creatives alike will consistently find themselves deep in design blogs, pin boards and tumblr feeds in search for insight and inspiration to the industry. It actually might be why you’re here right now.
As a source of my daily inspiration I find myself visiting graphic-exchange.com, now known as mr-cup.com. Graphic-exchange is an online venue with an abundance of design related awesomeness. Every so often I find myself surprised at what I find. Even today I found that the host, Fabien Barral, created an e-book that featured our brand identity for Palomino Restaurant. This e-book is filled with a selection of projects throughout 2012. You can download the e-book from his site for a small donation.
Random act of cupcake!?!
Good Reason #01 for being a Seattle resident: Getting “Cupcaked”. It’s true, we were “Cupcaked” today. It was most definitely unexpected and really quite awesome to say the least. The very generous folks at Cupcake Royale chose us for their random act of cupcaking. Apparently they choose a group of people they admire and deliver free cupcakes. It’s almost too good to be true. So as a Pioneer Square safety precaution and because technically the cupcakes are kind of from strangers, we made the intern eat one first. Just playin. Thanks Cupcake Royale! The packaging and gift set was also very nicely designed. Looks like we’ll be paying it forward soon.
