Knife Skills Print
Brainstorm is the art print and illustration studio we unintentionally started in late 2007. After graduating college in New Jersey with bleak job prospects and idealistic ambitions to use the degrees we worked for (graphic design and printmaking/art ed.), we found ourselves loving our creative collaborations mixed with the hustle and challenge of selling posters. We spent seven years moving around, getting creative in grimy basements and crumbling lofts, working tedious jobs to help pay the bills, doing anything necessary to make a real go of this poster-selling lifestyle we were getting attached to. Then one day we realized we'd built a business.
Subjects like science, the outdoors, food, and travel continually inspire our print work. The bulk of our days are filled with illustration and poster design, business-y administrative stuff, and keeping our wonderful retailers well-stocked with our goods. Sometimes we step outside of that world and do fun projects with other people.
