04 PetPunk

petpunk


PetPunk is a collaboration between two artists based in Lithuania: Gediminas Siaulys and Andrius Kirvela. The team works on graphic and motion design, with a slant towards illustration and animation. "Perhaps it's our tendency to be very hybrid in our approach," says Kirvela of their success. "It's a slippery combination [of] handmade and computer-made."

05 Mash Design

mashdesign


"Mash is a mob of creatives who construct and present all that is visual, and in so doing don't get hung up on ridiculous theories and processes." So says founding member James Brown, who, with partner Dom Roberts, forms the backbone of the Australian collective, bringing design clarity to brands such as 4AD records and Michell 1870.

She virtually fell into design nine years ago and now Florence Tetier is one of the most in-demand all-round designers, working across textile design, illustration and editorial for some of the coolest brands around.

Dustin Edward Arnold is a designer par excellence, who in his short career so far has created visuals for the likes of Issey Miyake, Levi Strauss, Bang & Olufsen and Apple. "I think people might be too fixated with what they can get rather than what they can do," explains Arnold. "I'm all about pushing the boundaries of what I can do."
