Sean Freeman at Apple store Montreal, Canada

For our friendly neighbors of the north, artist Sean Freeman will be appearing at the Apple Store in Montreal on October 17th.

A love for words and beautiful images led Sean to explore a harmony of both.  After graduating with a First Class Honors in Graphic Design and Advertising, Sean started working as a designer in a few agencies in London while pursuing his own work in the evenings, weekends, holidays and tea breaks.  After receiving his first commission ( a tiny headline in a major magazine) one commission quickly turned into several more, until the balance tipped, enabling him to set up his own studio: There Is.

Sean lives in East London under the watchful eye of his 13 year old (slightly fat) French Canadian cat.  He creates award-winning typographic treatments and illustrations for a varied range of clients globally.

KarlssonWilker take a European roadtrip to launch the Mini Coupe

When Mini contacted New York City based karlssonwilker for campaign ideas surrounding the launch of the new Mini Coupe, we’re pretty sure they did not expect to produce a road trip through Europe.  And that’s precisely what karlssonwilker founders, Jan Wilker and Hjalti Karlsson convinced Mini to do. The pair, along with KW creative director Nicole Jacek, drove two Mini Coupés across southern Europe with a film crew and photographer making stops to meet with area creatives and document their adventure. They came up with the plan once they heard the ‘Another day, another adventure’ theme Mini was looking to develop ideas around.

A few people they met along the way:

Romanian underground heavy metal band Monarchy:

Michelin-starred chef in Bulgaria, Joro Ivanev:

A Romanian graffiti artist Sinboy:

And they survived a few run-ins with the law:

The trip was documented online  and as part of a special 24 page inset designed by karlssonwilker in the release of Matter, a new magazine launching in October.  We are quite pleased that Creative Review covered the story yesterday!

The interview below is from the ADC site:

A love for words and beautiful images led Sean to explore a harmony of both. After graduating with a First Class Honors in Graphic Design & Advertising, Sean started working as a designer in a few agencies in London while pursuing his own work in the evenings, weekend, holidays and tea-breaks. After receiving his first commission (a tiny headline in a major magazine), one commission quickly turned into two, two to three, until the balance tipped, enabling him to spread his wings and set up his own studio: There Is.

Sean lives in East London under the watchful eye of his 13 year old (slightly fat) French-Canadian cat. He creates award-winning typographic treatments and illustrations for a varied range of clients globally.

What do you fight against constantly in your work?
Photoshop… sometimes I win… sometimes I don’t.

What is the driving force behind the time and effort you spend excelling at your craft?
An obsession with details.

What keeps you going when you work late into the evening?
Sweet wine & groovy tunes.

If you broke your arm, who would you most want to sign your cast?
Barack Obama, and ideally he’d sing a little something while he did it.

The most exquisite and inventive typography I have seen, presented flawlessly. – Ian Wharton, YG8
