Thom Sevalrud for Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative

For the Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association, the theme is change and The Design Office of Ann Marie Ternullo called on Thom Sevalrud to help illustrate this conversation.

For the cooperative's 2015 annual report Thom's clean lines and stylized approach provided a future-forward look at the client's complex industry. The fresh green color palette invites the reader and the illustration is cleverly carried throughout. The report is also printed (what a treat!) in an impressive 10"x13" format creating a stunning impact.

We have a special place in our hearts for great design. The collaboration between Ann Marie Ternullo and Thom Sevalrud created a truly special artifact.

Thom Sevalrud for 88 Scott

The vision for 88 Scott :  "These are the dreamers, the planners, the creators. ... In the earliest planning stages of 88 Scott, fifteen of the country's leading architects, planners and developers were invited to collaborate in a unique process. Their mandate was to create a bold vision for an exceptional, new landmark condominium building..."  

In keeping with this creative approach, art by nine local i2i artists was reproduced in large format and presented on hoarding panels (divided by inspirational quotations).  The idea was for the developer to support local talent while beautifying the site during the construction phase of development.  The images were chosen to represent the many facets of life in the immediate community:  green space, culture, recreation, shopping, entertainment etc.

Over the coming weeks we'll bring you pics of the other panels, but we start today with Thom Sevalrud's.  It's fantastic to see the art at this size!  If you have a chance, pop down and check out the larger-than-life art at 88 Scott in the heart of downtown Toronto.  To see more of Thom's art go here.

Tracy Walker for Taproot

Tracy created this powerful illustration about how a father and daughter connect through bedtime storytelling in the July issue of Taproot Magazine. Without getting literal in her conceptual way of weaving together elements, Tracy tells a story that we think is worth 1000 words! Art directed by the lovely Amanda Blake Soule, editor of Taproot Magazine.
