working on design by the book with the new york public library was one of the best projects i’ve ever worked on in my almost 5 years at d*s. watching 5 artists create such beautiful designs inspired by the library’s collections was so much fun, and such an honor for me. i’ve always wanted to delve deeper into the creative process behind the work we love, so the series was my chance to immerse myself in the actual work that comes before the finished product.
so many of you responded positively to the series and today i’ll thrilled to announce that scene:brooklyn (an brooklyn independent film & media arts festival) has, too! a short-film version of design by the book (created by our videographer james murdock) was accepted into the festival and will be the subject of its own panel on the first night!
on monday, may 4th the entire DBTB team, including artists julia rothman and mike perry, will be speaking at the galapagos art space in dumbo brooklyn (not the old location in williamsburg) following the artists in residence screening. the screening starts at 9pm so it’s a late one, but we’re so excited to be able to share our love of the brooklyn art/design/film scene and we hope you’ll come join us! the event is only $5 (and gets you in to see all the films that night), so come meet some of the talented artists behind the project if you’re free!
