For the past few weeks we’ve been intensely working away on a project for Henriquez Partners Architects for Kenneth Gordan Maplewood School (KGMS) as they are expanding their alternative high school program in North Vancouver. The project consists of fifteen aluminum 4′ x 8′panels, each weighing at 45 lb. each. This is the largest mural project we’ve ever taken on and we’re very excited about it.

We’re very honoured to be working with the highly regarded and award winning architecture firm, Henriquez Partners Architects on this project. In the next few weeks we’ll be working tirelessly at the studio and will be documenting as much of our process as possible. Follow our Instagram and Twitter accounts for daily updates.

What a year! 2013 was a very important year for us as this was the year where we truly went independent for the first time since opening our doors as a part time experimental creative workshop back in 2008. Through this little creative indie workshop, we worked hard throughout the night and weekends to try new techniques and refine our craft on very select projects while Carson still worked as an art director during the day. This duo life as an artist at night and art director by day lasted for 4 years until the end of 2012 where we finally made the leap to run our company full time.

This year we travelled far and wide. Shooting our independent documentary in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Montreal, and Hawaii, guest lecturing at the Montserrat College of Art in Boston, Massachusetts, artist signing event at kidrobot in New York, Art show collab party in Toronto, judging the Ad Rodeo in Calgary and working with clients in Seattle, LA and Texas really made this year a special one for us. We’re very grateful for everyone who believed in us and allowed us to really flex our creative muscle, whether it’s a mural, a microsite, animation, illustration, photography, or just a silly doodle, we had a ton of fun.

We hope to continue working on projects we believe in and helping others along the way to build even greater creative work for 2014.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends at TAXI Vancouver, Spencer and Bloom, Whole Foods, Microsoft, Hootsuite, DDB Canada, The Canadian Tourism Commission, Kidrobot New York and Boulder, Digital Kitchen Seattle, Creature Seattle, Mini Shatsu LA, Edelman, Goo Media, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Montserrat College of Art, BC Business magazine, 123 West, We The Collective design and our friends Jeff Hamada, Henry Chu, Francis Lam, Clay Rochemont, Ryan Holmes, Patricia Seto, Maggie Cavallo, Eugene Kan, Just Williet, Wu Yue, Andrew Bell, Nathan Jurevicius, and more for helping us out in many different ways or with our independent documentary film this year.

Signing off here in Hong Kong. See you all in 2014!
