Brand New Inspiration

So we’re finally rested and have had a week to reflect on our trip to the Big Apple. Can I just say that we had an amazing time? Not only did we get to go to an inspiring conference, we also got to see part of the NYC marathon and squeezed in time to see the Broadway show Fela!. By the way, if you’re in NYC before January 2, we TOTALLY recommend checking it out.

We attended the Brand New Conference, and had the chance to listen to design-greats like Michael Bierut and Paula Scher from Pentagram and (our favorite speaker of the day) type designer, Erik Spiekermann. One of our favorite projects was the rebranding of the LA Metro system done by Michael Lejeune and the Metro Design Studio. It was a long day, jam packed with design goodness and fun schwag. It was fantastic to be in an auditorium where everyone got the font jokes and you didn’t have to explain to anyone why the Gap rebranding was so horrible. We left New York with our minds, hearts, bellies and suitcases full of good stuff to share with everyone.

Afternoon delight

We just received this amazing signed print today. We’re not sure if it was a promo item or a gift, but we’ll take it…thank you Plexifilm Renoleum! Here is an update to our mysterious Helvetica poster. Our friends at Renoleum are the little sneaks that sent it to us. Thank you SO much guys…we LOVE it!

Bright Lights, Big City!

We are SO excited to announce our trip to NYC in early November! The SimpleFly team will be attending the Brand New Conference. We’ll be attending with our friends at Renoleum and together we’ll get to meet and listen to some great designers—including Michael Bierut and Paula Scher. Is it weird that we’re totally taking our autograph books with us? Eh, who cares.
