Infographic Designers’ Sketchbooks

Oh happy day! Some of our favorite work and the process of how we go about creating our information graphic projects is being featured in the recently published Infographic Designers’ Sketchbooks by Steven Heller and Rick Landers. The volume includes  70+ case studies from the likes of Massimo Vignelli, Hyperakt and MGMT, and we are truly honored to be part of such an amazing line-up.

To find out more about the book, you can check out Cool Hunting‘s recent post about it, or get your own copy through Princeton Architectural Press.

Signed, sealed, delivered

We’re absolutely besides ourselves with excitement that our latest project with the AIGA – a comprehensive national membership toolkit and a vast library of digital files – has been sent out into the world! From concept and strategy, to research and realization, this project has held a very, very special place in our hearts for many reasons – not the least of which are all of the amazing AIGA members and leaders that we’ve met along the way. The new membership toolkits are traveling to all 68 AIGA chapters across the U.S. and the information contained within will hopefully ultimately reach over 25,000+ members. Bon voyage!

For more information becoming an AIGA member (because if you’re a designer or a design fan, you should be) visit AIGA.org.

Interactive Infographics

Our longstanding relationship with the WWNorton team has lead to a wide variety of projects that we are very proud to have in our body of work. Our most recent collaboration is the fifth edition of The Essentials of Sociology, a textbook for college undergraduates that offers a comprehensive view on the subject of Sociology. The textbook aims to identify macro social forces in daily life to bring students outside of their individual experiences.

Our work for The Essentials of Sociology includes designing the cover and interior, which includes a series of full-page information graphics in each chapter. New to this edition is a series of  interactive infographics that allow students to engage with the content digitally.

Curious? Pick yourself up a copy here.

Welcome to The Family

We’ve just received a shipment of our latest textbook design for WW Norton’s first edition of The Family by Philip N. Cohen, Professor of Sociology at UMCP and author of the well known Family Inequality blog.

The college-level textbook features a cover that invites students to create a version of their own family on the textbook and share their results using the hashtag #myfamilyphoto. The WW Norton team has started contributing and we couldn’t help chiming in with a portrait of the KMIP family.

Itty Bitty Birthday

The Itty Bitty Project turns 1!

We can’t believe a year has passed since the Itty Bitty project became such a huge part of our lives. One thing’s for sure, we couldn’t have done it without all the support of our family, friends and itty bitty fans.

Have you checked out our latest Alien Monster tees yet? And if you haven’t seen the taco you’re missing out!

BAV Office Signage

This spring, BAV, a global strategic consultancy, approached us to add a bit of pizazz to their new office space. We enjoyed the challenge of translating the branding we designed into a working environment.

BAV’s office underwent the transformation this month, turning the space into a much better reflection of the brand. (Goodbye, white pillars.) What a difference color makes!

Branding the Deer Mountain Inn

Located in Tannersville, New York, Deer Mountain Inn operates as the perfect setting for an escape in nature without sacrificing comfort. In preparation for their opening this summer, we’ve been designing packaging for their locally sourced products. We’re glad to be a part of the branding for this gem of a hotel nestled in the dreamiest location.

Please excuse us while plan out our next studio retreat…

A private tour of the new Whitney

One of the many perks of working for the Design Trust includes a year-long membership in the Design Trust Council. As members, KMIP was invited to join a private tour of the new Whitney Museum, located at the southern end of the High Line.

Our tour began with a visit to the Renzo Piano’s onsite office and was followed by a visit to the gallery spaces with an incredible view of the city. The tiered structure will soon boast the largest column-free museum gallery space in NYC.

We can’t wait for the opening in Spring 2015!

We Totes Love Public Space

We jumped at the chance when asked to design a new tote bag for the Design Trust. The new Design Trust site we designed called for some matching swag. We’re so stoked at the outcome and can’t wait to see them roaming around in public space.

Get yours here to support the Design Trust and get together to share your love for public space!

Itty Bitty Cutie

A heartfelt thank you to Kickstarter

We couldn’t be happier with the results of last weekend’s Kickstarter block party in Greenpoint- the sun came out to support our Itty Bitty corner booth. Exclusively for this event we created a special edition Alien Monster tee in an outrageous Neon Green to celebrate Kickstarter’s 5th birthday!

Special thanks to all the Kickstarter block party visitors that came by, said hi, and shared some love and support! All the positive feedback definitely left us feeling invigorated, and completely excited about all the new Itty Bitty tee ideas that have been brewing here at Itty Bitty Headquarters.

There’s more Itty Bitty love to spread around, so be sure keep your eyes and ears open for new editions! Be sure to follow us on instagram @ittybittyproject!
