We are happy to announce that our upcoming Hidden issue will be designed by graphic designer Jason Pickleman of JNL Graphic Design.
After a fantastic collaboration with Alisa Wolfson, Eavan Wallner, and Peter Ty from Leo Burnett’s Department of Design for our Debate issue, we are continuing our collaboration with graphic designers for each one of our issues. Jason Pickleman is not a stranger to MAS Context: he is on our board of advisors; we interviewed him in our inaugural issue MORE for which he also designed the cover; he has contributed his poetry and artwork (here and here) to three other issues; he lectured in our first MAS Context Analog event in 2011; and we visited his studio last year.
A little bit about JNL Graphic Design: JNL specializes in the creation of graphic objects of unique cultural significance. Catalogues, site-specific artworks, dimensional signage, advertising, brand identities, and related collateral are part and parcel of their daily work flow. They seek to do highly visible projects that sculpt the visual and cultural landscape we all inhabit. As they say “Design is the way we live; the way we think; that which informs us; persuades us; motivates us; cajoles, carouses, and inspires us.” You can check their fantastic work and long list of clients on their website. Jason is also the owner of the collection-based gallery Lawrence & Clark.
We really like and respect the work of JNL Graphic Design and we look forward to working with them on this issue.
