Recently Chris showed me how cool the many years of David Stark Design ads were as a collection. We never look at them like that. Rather, they have been created one by one, since 2006, over the course of several months in between, so it’s great fun to see how beautifully they hold up as their own exhibition. Thus, we are excited to post this retrospective, created in collaboration with a designer who we couldn’t be more madly in love with: Karen Hsu of Omnivore.
Karen is probably one of the most talented, inspiring people I have ever met. We have collaborated with her from day one on everything from our own identity and branding materials to invitations for parties, and our recent David Stark Design book.
We started these at the end of 2006, and they continue today as recently as one month ago, primarily created for inclusion in the print editions of BiZBash, but they sometimes find themselves in other homes too.
My premise has always been: Anything that we do will be art - whether it be our event installations, our products, or our marketing materials. I feel so lucky to have found another bird of the same feather to flock with, Karen. Thank you for inspiring me on a daily basis.
I hope you guys get as much of a kick out of these as I do. There’s no reason why an ad needs to be . . . regular. Why do ordinary?
