Derek & Brighton Ballard – Neuer Geist

“Thank you to @slugmag and @babyzai_ for the fantastic feature!

Pick up the new issue and check it out.

Also, how stunning is the cover illustrated by our friend @jill_dehaan ?”

FROM SLUG MAGAZINE:

“Since 2015, Neuer Geist has been creating and designing images and products that reflect their own brand aesthetic. And in addition to that, they help other businesses grow and form their own. Through screen-printing, watercolor, graphic design and the newly introduced techniques from highly coveted risograph machines, Brighton Ballard and Derek Ballard offer an array of services that can refresh any business’ look and create an impression on the community. By combining their two entities—Derek’s consisting of dark, industrial aesthetics and a background in design, and Brighton’s comprising watercolor, line drawing and portraiture—the two maintain their signature look as Neuer Geist.”

Jill DeHaan

FROM SLUG MAGAZINE:

“As a lifelong visually and artistically oriented person, she pursued an associate’s degree in visual art and design at Salt Lake Community College. The program was primarily rooted in graphic design, but she realized that she could “take letters to some place new, and they didn’t just have to be a font,” says De Haan. Under the watchful eye of Associate Professor Kerry Gonzales—her “design mother,”—she was exposed to stern design methodology while also being encouraged experiment and push the boundaries of art and design (essentially, learning the rules first then when and how to break them.)”
