What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

March 30, 2014

We’ve been working hard trying to come out with some new work. We recently stumbled across this great quote by Napoleon Hill.

“What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

For some reason the first thing that came to our minds was space exploration. Really, what greater accomplishment has man made? Nothing else was really that ground breaking, well beside my iPhone;) 

Below are some great detail shots of the printed work. Also you can purchase this in store by Clicking Here

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

New Print – “You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.”

March 4, 2014

DesignDifferent

We’ve recently stumbled across a great quote by Albert Camus and just had to make it into a print. Lucky for you we captured the whole thing. Check out the Time Lapse Video below.

Title : TRAVEL
“You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.” – Albert Camus

It really took a while to build this one. We tried several different approaches at first, face on, sideways, angled, but in the end liked the side of the luggage bags. They offered more detail and more variation between them all. We also played a lot with the composition as you can see in the video. Originally we envisioned the print symmetrical, but in playing with the staggering of the bags and the one tilted bag we thought this added more fun to it all.

You can purchase the print here on our site.

New Contra Game Print

February 25, 2014

DesignDifferent

20140225-105523.jpgWe love the 80s! And hope you do too:) if there is one thing we remember about them it’s that video games were a huge craze! Especially… Wait for it… Contra. This wildly entertaining game caused soar Nintendo thumbs across the globe by pressing on those rigidly sharp buttons. What we also remember is saving game data was not even invented yet because there was no storage device built in. So the one thing we relied on was cheat codes! Sometimes difficult to master, cheat codes provided vast amounts of time saving fun! Which leads us to our newest print inspired by Contra. This one code has been burned in our brains for eternity.
