Neuer Geist: CLC Artisan
By Zaina Abujebarah

Structured and playful all at once, Neuer Geist’s mission is to innovate and create without losing the “glory of the past.” Brighton and Derek Ballard both bring their artistic abilities to the table and join creative forces to create pieces like prints and patches, as well as menus and other graphic design gems, tailored for local businesses. All are showcased on their website.

“We’re lucky to have found each other,” Brighton says. “Derek would painstakingly reproduce the logos of favorite bands and save bits of packaging or product tags that he thought were interesting, and I drew and painted constantly.” Their creative roots led to the inception of their brand. “Derek’s aesthetic is very clean, precise and calculated, while mine is more loose and suggestive,” says Brighton. “We help each other through the process of creating. We’re constantly talking about the business, giving each other feedback, helping each other with a sketch or an idea.”
