Derek & Brighton Ballard

“Hey y’all! We’re so grateful to have had a wonderful #renegadecraftfair weekend in Austin, all thanks to many of you new friends and fellow artists! A little bit about us, if we haven’t met yet – Neuer Geist is a creative collective headed by us, Derek and Brighton Ballard. We’re Utah’s only risograph studio, and specialize in branding, design, and print media. We love tiny details and art related to pop culture, constantly reference Seinfeld and Tim & Eric, and are the proud parents of the world’s least welcoming cat.

“Four tarot card mini-print sets down, many more to come. We’ve chatted with so many folks about expanding these into a whole deck, with #risograph it might be possible sooner rather than later! For now, you can grab any set on our shop at ng15.co!” 📦❤️

The project included designs for a logo, letterhead/envelope/business card, kit cover, brochure, magazine ad and annual report cover/spreads.

Thanks to alumni for generously volunteering their time and expertise: Karli Duisen, Melyssa Ferguson, Amber Giles, Ben Heighton, Christine Hunsaker, Kevin Landeen, Jorge Pille, Austin Record, Kristy Sabey, Em Veylupek and Lauren Donna Waters.

Thanks also to Alex Gonzáles for sharing his printing industry expertise. Next Review & Preview… the first week in December! 😊😄😁

The task started ‘I am looking for an HTML to send out saying SuperCuts seeking sites in Utah’ with other copy that was to be included… I made the choice to make it mainly visual with the information being prominent, but like it was part of the image itself.

Em Veylupek

“I’ve been experimenting with resin and glass pieces to create geode style paintings. This is my second attempt and has already sold. I start out with drawing on the different contour lines with a pencil. Once I have a good idea of the shape I use clear epoxy resin to glue down the glass pieces. Once the glass pieces are dry and set I move on to adding colors. This has gold, metallic purple, red plum, dark violet and white.”
