Studio A and Dieter Rams’ “10 Principles of Good Design”

Last week the Goethe-Institut hosted a conversation with Dian Holton and Antonio about Dieter Rams’ “10 Principles of Good Design” and how Studio A’s work supports or diverges from those ideals. It was a fun morning talking about design and meaningful work. Danke schön Goethe Institut DC!

SpaethHill Geometric Design featured on high value US Postal Stamp

Next time you have a package to mail, use these new $2 or $5 stamps designed by SpaethHill design. The pattern is adapted from geometry found in many plant leaf patterns. The foil-stamping contrasts with the softer watercolor backgrounds. It was a pleasure working with Nathan and Jill on these beauties.
Time to mail someone a book!
