We were pretty lucky to start working in the editorial design field at a time where we were really obsessed with paper, typefaces, and print publications in general.
Now when we look at our bookshelf we have designed around 30 magazines over two years but we keep thinking: what’s next?
We started in September 2012 after years of working in several studios acquiring enough experience to finally open our own studio.
In the beginning we were mostly working on small projects for friends, vinyl covers for John Talabot’s label came knocking on our door.
With a constant eye on contemporary culture the pair and their team create work that is “both timely and timeless”.
As they expand their practice even more, we catch up about how the distinguished studio began and what’s next for print.
Even though editorial design is our speciality and we plan to keep doing it, we are currently working on our art direction capabilities, be it photography, video or spaces.
Of course, it makes us feel part of a long tradition, similar to architects, shoemakers and product designers.
Yet having the vocabulary for sex doesn’t always translate so seamlessly into comfortable conversations.
Especially when it’s about what we want from, and even during, sex. The willingness to talk about the kind of sex we have or want to have is a key skill.
Kate Mc Combs, a sex and relationships educator, points out, “When you avoid those vital conversations, you might avoid some awkwardness, but you’re also settling for suboptimal sex.” By having these conversations, you and your partner’s relationship can have emotional, psychological, and mental benefits.
I remember furtively clicking on thumbnail after thumbnail in an “Interns of the Month” gallery, watching spray-tanned haunches and balloon-taut breasts of girls posed around Oval Office interiors materialize, bit by it.
When my sister, searching for images of her favorite British pop stars, accidentally typed “Spicy Girls” into Yahoo, the search results made her run, shrieking, from the family computer. “It is probably no coincidence that this sea change comes on us at a time when AIDS lurks in the alleyways of our lives,” a writer for The Nation mused in 1993.
