National Forest

Justin Krietemeyer and Steven Harrington of National Forest have been jamming out crazy-inspiring work for years. In a world where art all-too-often exists as residue of negative energy (insert corny emo song here), we couldn't help but take the time to chat with the overlords of optimism about collaboration, running their design shop and making work that consistently beams good vibes and high fives for all.

Pentagram 40

So, there's this design firm called like, Pentagram, or something. Well, they like turned 40 this year and like made 40 posters celebrate that they are old.

Some of these posters are really quite nice, and others are just ok. I love that Pentagram can pretty much do whatever they want. Ain't no one questioning 40 years of iconic design. I still think Abbott Miller is the best partner. I think Eddie is also pretty rad.

Check it.
