The Smithsonian National Postal Museum asked Studio A to create a brochure for an exhibition documenting the relationship between the US Mail and our soldiers. Instead of a traditional brochure, we designed the information to look like a packet of postcards and letters, held together by a rubber band, and ready to hand to a soldier. Visit the National Postal Museum next to Union Station and pick up your own set of cards!
Our latest catalogue design arrived last week from the printer: “The Imperial Image: Paintings for the Mughal Court.” We weren’t familiar with the art when we started but have since fallen in love with the colors, patterns, details, stories, and flat-out beauty. The Sackler Gallery will have these exceptional artworks on exhibit starting in late July. Don’t miss them!
We recently got a copy of our latest book, fresh from the printer! It’s a monograph on the 20th century Russian/Ukrainian/American painter Abraham Manievich. We designed English AND Russian editions of this book. We hope all the hard work helps increase recognition for this master artist! Thanks to our client Alan Pensler! — at Studio A.
Tonight was the opening for the exhibit we designed for the National Postal Museum. The best part of the opening was meeting a 92 year old man who, as a 17 year old, held a tether line from the Hindenburg as it exploded. He helped cut the ribbon to open the exhibit. More photos of the exhibit to come. — at Smithsonian National Postal Museum.
Who still wears a suit to work? Well, these folks do. We designed the traveling exhibition “Suited for Space” for SITES. It documents in photos, panels, and artifacts the development of space suits for astronauts. Lots of cool Space Age stuff! These photos are from it’s stop in Richmond. Next stop: Columbia Space Center, Downey, CA.
