We were commissioned by Bloomberg Bussiness Week to create a Dove / Hawk for the story on Janet Yellen and her flight to be the Federal Reserve’s first female chairman. “If she get’s the job, Yellen will convey that she has the head of a hawk and the soul of a dove “. These creatures are a bird of a different feather and we really enjoyed making them.
Our good friend Ashley Benzwie and Arielle Tayar spent the past year filming the documentary U R Not Alone. Over the last year, the two have followed a local man on his path to self-destruction through alcohol, drugs, and false hopes. The documentary is about the unlikely friendship that develops between the two young women and this alleged criminal. Please make sure to check out their video and contribute what you can in order to get their story officially produced!!

We are so excited for the launch of Day Job Magazine by Elliot Walker. “Day Job is a publication for anyone who has ever had a job they’ve loved, a job they’ve hated, a life-long calling or a way to make an easy buck. In short, it’s about work, a celebration of the everyday ways in which we spend our time and energy.”
When Elliot asked us to style and shoot the story ” Lunch Break ” for the magazine, we were thrilled given it’s our favorite time of day :) Check out the spread we did below and also please pick up a copy either online or at your neighborhood New York bookstore. You would be supporting a wonderful project and we definitely think it’s worth the read.
This cute film showed during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and we thought it was totally worth blogging about. The characters are friendly and the tempo is catchy, just watch out, it get’s a little weird at the end :)

I absolutely LOVED Spanish architect Antoni Guadi’s Sagrada Familia while visiting Spain. What I loved most, was all his tiny surprises in details. This here is probably favorite tiny detail I found in a bunch of his hand lettering- a mold of a person’s teeth integrated into the text that covered the entrance doors. So weird and cool!
This weekend we took a day off from the studio to find inspiration elsewhere and enjoy what all New York has to offer. The Guggenheim museum was having a free day, so we jumped in line to see the Maurizio Cattelan exhibit. Maurizio is known for his sense of humor in not only his exhibits but in person through various public pranks. He has an interesting and startling way of working with extreme realism in wax figures and full scale taxidermy. The exhibit was amazing because it was a retrospective of all his most famous, memorable, big or small works of art through his life together in one piece. We were amazed by what little discoveries we would find just in the change of perspective. While you spiraled through the space, it was like the exhibit itself was unraveling with continuous details and surprises at every angle. I would love to go back just to catch all the things I didn’t see the first time, but better hurry. The exhibition closes this month – Jan 22nd!
