HELLO & welcome to our design file excavation site!
Here you can give us money in exchange for our old files from throughout the past decade. Go forth and explore our digital artifacts—sketches, in-process drawings, quick ideas, rough layouts, and much more. Ready for some design archeology?
We don’t use sketchbooks. Our sketches are almost exclusively digital, meaning: “done directly on a computer”, only very, very rarely “pen on paper”—and if so, it’s mostly words. Over the years, we have amassed a vast quantity of digital sketches, floating around somewhere in our studio's ether, and there is no reason not to make at least portions of these accessible. Through this portal, you can access a variety of “project-related files”, that show the usually hidden thought and design process in our early explorations, misguided impulses, initial sketches, directions that were later scrapped, etc.—mainly in the form of quick and dirty illustrator files. We will keep adding more in the coming months.
Please be explicitly advised of the following:
Make sure you can receive email attachments up to 20MB. Files available for download are merely project-related, and by no means final, print-ready mechanicals (which would be quite boring for you to look at). Possible files formats: .ai, .psd, .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .aiff, .mp3, .qxd. Obviously, typefaces and links are not included, with all consequences that this brings. We were able to open all files in the current CS5 environment.
When we close down the studio one day, we will put all our files online for everyone to download, but for now, this is an "old-sketches-for-sale" type thing, with a limit of 20MB per project. Please know that we’re not interested in engaging in a discourse about what you expected to get and did receive in the end. Why are we making you pay for it? Because we can, and because you will treat our files differently. You can use them in non-commercial work, according to Creative Commons' CC BY-NC license.
