STEM stamps

Two weeks ago, STEM stamps featuring artwork by the enormously talented Dave Plunkert went on sale. His collages help communicate the variety of avenues each discipline can represent while creating an appealing image that looks to the future. An added bonus: he’s a dream to work with. Here’s to hoping we can add an ARTS stamp to the set! Congratulations Dave!

The Illinois Statehood Stamp

Early last week, the new Illinois Statehood stamp was issued. It was a pleasure working with talented Chicago designer Mike Konetzka on the design. It’s a radical departure from recent statehood stamps, relying more on metaphoric and symbolic imagery than on straight representation. We love it and hope all our friends (especially in Illinois) buy a sheet!

The Kennedy Center’s Annual Report

One of the most vibrant arts organizations in our area is The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Studio A was thrilled to be invited to design their latest annual report. It not only documents a year’s worth of programming, but presents a compelling argument for how support of the arts benefits our entire nation. Thank you Kennedy Center!
