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.

Monika Melnychuk Posters for 24 Hours of Light

"Ride all night long in the glow of the midnight sun" is the enticing caption to this year's 24 Hours of Light. This is a mountain biking event held each summer in the rugged wilderness of Whitehorse, Yukon. Mountain biking is one of Monika Melnychuk's biggest passions--illustration being the other.

When asked to create the posters for this event Monika tapped into her funky sense of style to illustrate some out of this world bike designs along with a couple kick-butt characters. Wild pops of color, original lettering, great expression and a serious sense of whimsy typifies Monika Melncyhuk's illustration.

Gary Alphonso for Ensign Magazine

Scott Knudsen, art director for Ensign Magazine, came to Gary Alphonso with a story of faith and sacrifice. Looking at the opening paragraph, the metaphor that inspired these beautiful pieces was clear -- "A ship is safe in the harbor, but that's not what ships are for."  

The article, "Faith to leave the harbor" showcases Gary's classic, digitally rendered, scratchboard style and the nautical theme highlights Gary's real ability to capture motion and light in his illustrations.

Dave Murray for Reader's Digest, "Birders Unite!"

Hipsters: known for ransacking vintage stores, perfecting their beards and gentrifying neighborhoods with their artisanal food stores. It seemed likely they should revitalize some old school hobbies while they are at it. Like bird watching.  

This month's Reader's Digest article, "Birders Unite!" written by Julia Zarankin, dives into the phenomena of the bird watching millennials.  Needing to combine the tattooed with the wilderness, art director Annelise Dekker picked the perfect artist in Dave Murray.
