StrawberryLuna studio : a dynamic duo

I’ve been a long time fan of the super talented design, illustration, and printmaking team known as Strawberry Luna. My art crush on this husband-wife studio might have a little to do with the fact that some of my favorite rock bands are among their impressive client list. And because they hand pull their beautiful silkscreens the super old-fashioned way. Or, because they hail from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. But, mostly I just am in love with their distinctive and smart graphic style! Best known for their silkscreen prints and posters, they also work on custom illustration and design projects including CD & vinyl packaging,web-ready icons, t-shirt designs, and logos & identity packages.

Their impressive client list includes Belle and Sebastion, Camera Obscura, Andrew Bird, Feist, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie and many, many more.

It was hard to choose just a few favorite pieces to share, so be sure to stop by their website and Etsy shop to see more!

Studio Spotlight :: DKNG

By Wendy

DKNG are probably one of my favorite studios out there. They make incredible work, and design geeks like me will spend hours browsing their breakdown videos. Their work is done through a combination of Illustrator, Photoshop and hand drawn techniques. Sometimes they silkscreen. Often they sell limited edition runs of their posters, but you gotta grab ‘em quick because they sell out fast.

You can stalk them like I do here: portfolio | vimeo | pinterest | twitter | facebook

He graduated from Art Center College of Design with a BFA in Illustration and his impressive list of clients include Etnies, Google, Herman Miller, Lonely Planet, National Geographic, New York Times, NPR, Print Magazine, Sub Pop Records, Target, and Urban Outfitters.

I’ve fallen so hard for Tatsuro Kiuchi’s illustration work that it was so hard to pick just a few pieces to share with you! You simply must visit his portfolio website right now and take a gander at the rest of his work. His use of texture and negative space just fills his works with depth and light.

Tatsuro Kiuchi was born in Tokyo, Japan. After studying biology at the International Christian University in Tokyo, he made the switch to an art career after graduating with distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Tatsuro began illustrating children’s books with several publishers in the US and Japan, eventually branching out into editorial work for magazines, book jacket illustrations and advertising commissions.
