“We were exceedingly lucky to work with Bryan at Paper Obscura on last month’s subscription box, and he asked us a few questions about our work and inspiration. Click through if you’d like to learn more about us and what we have coming up this year.

Paper Obscura, by the way, is a super cool literary subscription box, perfect for any fan of thrilling tales, twisty turns, and oddities of all shapes and sizes. April boxes are sold out, but May sign ups are around the corner!”

Derek & Brighton Ballard

“Some detailed shots of a 2 color poster I designed for @ibasedbod ‘s upcoming short film. Showing at Brewvies this Friday. Brighton and I printed this on our in-house Risograph printer. @ Urban Lounge.”

“My incredible Oma turned 100 on March 8th. Brighton and I designed and hand printed handkerchiefs as a party favor for her celebration that weekend. The design is based on some of Oma’s favorite things: ladybugs, humming birds, Las Vegas, Spring, and 4711 perfume. I based some of the typography off the stunning 4711 bottle label I would always see Oma with. Also the fragrance is unmistakably connected to her- so we spritzed all the handkerchiefs with 4711 before giving them to guests at the party.”
