Spencer Elden Richard Pendavingh 22.10.10

Found this great little interview many moons ago of a little-known graphic designer that now works for Shepard Fairy at his studio in New York. It's amazing where you end up when you've got a really good personal anecdote to break the ice at job interviews.

Keith Schofield Richard Pendavingh 10.08.10

K-Swiss recently hired Keith Schofield to put together a fairly awesome commercial with the tag line 'Have an Awesome Day. Which is timely, because 2010 has turned out to be the year of the word Awesome. Personally I'm hoping the word 'splendid' makes a revival in 2011.
