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.”

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.)”

“I’m all setup at Fear Con! I’m in the marketplace area. Just look for the orange curtains. I hope to see some of you guys there!”
“There are now three ways to get your hands on my Mormon prayer candles:
1. If you live around Davis County to Salt Lake City, message me and we can meet up and you can buy them directly from me.
2. Writ & Vision book store on Center Street in Provo.
3. My Etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/epluribusmormon
They would make a great gift.”

Matt Page at Zombie Home Evening.
“…my zombie art show and book signing was pushed back until Monday the 17th. Which also gives me another couple of days to make new original art to display and sell that night. Make a family night out of it. I hope to see you there!”

“So fun to get work in the mail! 2 of 3 covers I created for Carrie Doyle’s ‘Hamptons Murder Mystery Series.’ Thanks @dunemerebooks for the fun opportunity!”
Keith Beard curates “Welcome to My World” at his Miri Gallery.
“About the show: When words fail to express the emotions associated with mental health struggles, art opens a powerful avenue of communication. ‘Welcome to My World: Mental Health Awareness Through Art’ is a juried exhibition featuring artists from across the United States, and aims to promote resilience and hope, as well as raise awareness about mental health.”
Kudos to VAD Alumni! Graphic Design grads do it all!
