Roh + Kiehl's Win Awards

Last year Jungyeon Roh created a series of illustrations for Kiehl’s Since 1851. In 2003, New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, declared November 12th 'Kiehl’s Day' in honor and recognition of their ongoing contributions to the community. Since then Kiehl’s stores worldwide have joined in the celebration, making significant contributions in their own communities to commemorate this special day. Jungyeon’s illustrations could be seen on Kiehl’s in-store signage and promo materials in stores worldwide.

The series (click here to see it) was so well-received it recently won a merit award in HOW magazine's InHOWse Design Competition. The awards program shines a spotlight on an under-represented segment of the design industry, giving in-house designers the kudos they deserve. Part of the Kiehl's series included a map of New York City's East Village, home to the original Kiehl's store in 1851. The map was chosen to appear in the Society of Illustrators 55 annual and will be on display as part of the Editorial, Book and Advertising exhibition at the Society of Illustrators in New York from January 30th through March 2nd, 2013. Congratulations go out to Jungyeon, Travis Cain (Art Director for the project) and everyone at Kiehl's!

Red Nose Studio Exhibits at C.A.VE.

Chris of Red Nose Studio dipped into some '90s nostalgia for a gallery exhibition inspired by the alternative rock band the Pixies. "I admit I never knew the right words to the Pixies songs," says Chris, "but they sure helped keep me up during the many all-nighters at art school." Chris chose the song "Bailey's Walk" as the inspiration for his piece. He says the show "gave me a chance to really look into the lyrics of the band. I am still amazed at the emotions and energy their songs have, even when they tend to make less sense after you know the words."

Kevin Titzer curated the show at C.A.V.E. gallery, which is located on famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California.
