SHAPING AIGA’S 2013 DESIGN CONFERENCE

For AIGA’s 2013 Head Heart Hand Conference in Minneapolis, the Kiss Me I’m Polish team devised a multidisciplinary design experience celebrating the organization’s centennial year while emphasizing AIGA’s true strength: its diverse and powerful membership made up of designers of all shapes and sizes.

The multifaceted campaign included a foldout poster and broadside sent to AIGA’s 25,000 members (and included in all attendee goodie bags), a geometrically-narrated animation shown to an audience of 2,000 during the conference; as well as an analog interactive experience in which attendees contributed to a mural made of hand-cut paper shapes that grew continuously throughout the event. The biggest hit though may have been the photo booth featuring 3-D versions of all of our geometric shapes.

We’ve been combing through Instagram to collect everyone’s snapshots of all of the various pieces and love how everyone have made the experience their own.

Thank you to everyone that participated!

Support the Itty Bitty Kickstarter Campaign!

We’ve been working up a storm in the Itty Bitty Factory.

Since our launch of the Itty Bitty Project in December 2012, we’ve gotten some fantastic feedback and some sweet press. But we’re still a very small shop and we would love to expand our line to include more concepts, more designs, and more sizes! So we’ve taken to Kickstarter to help fund our two new designs – the Itty Bitty Ice Cream Cone and the Itty Bitty Cosmos – and make them available for bigger kids, teens, and adults.

Check out our Kickstarter page, watch our video about how The Itty Bitty Project all got started, and help spread the word! Let us know what you think. We hope you’ll get as excited about it as we are!

National Geographic: Waiting For Baby

One of our favorite roles when developing the miniature information graphics for National Geographic was doing the necessary research to come up with interesting facts and concepts to illustrate. We ended up submitting 50+ ideas, of which only a handful were selected for development and design.

Though it can be a bit unfortunate for those that don’t make the cut, we were delighted when National Geographic asked us to create a larger illustration based on one of our original ideas – a side-by-side comparison of gestation times amongst various mammals – from an oppossum (2 weeks) to an elephant (21-23 months, yikes!).
