These photographs by Adam Pape show a side of New York City we know and love. It’s not all flashy lights and yellow taxi-cabs … “It is a portrait of New York that natives know, that curious netherworld between day and night where nothing is quite what it seems. Here Pape takes us on a journey into the heart and soul of Manhattan’s outer limits.” Check out the whole story on feature shoot.
In a field that can be exclusionary and competitive, it’s important to amplify diverse voices. We love this article from AIGA Eye on Design that talks to women of color in design about their experiences, and explores how we can all create learning and professional environments that fosters growth for the whole community, not just the privileged few.
Humor and play in design breaks us out of the ordinary - beyond what’s sleek and flashy and back to something uniquely human: laughter.
