I had the pleasure of sharing quite a few bloody marys with my new friend Chad Kouri on Monday. Chad was visiting New York and Philly from Chicago, photographing artist spaces for upcoming features on The Post Family blog. If you haven’t checked out the design collective’s blog yet you should. And according to Chad it’s going to be expanding with all sorts of goodies soon. Chad himself is working freelance doing lots of different design projects that even range to set design and gallery installations. You can check out his work right here. I am most excited about his paper collages which mix interesting imagery with type or texture. While Chad was here I was able to take some pictures of his recent sketchbook and then he sent some other pictures to me from another one, so these images below are a sampling of two sketchbooks. We haven’t really had any “designers” share sketchbooks here since Isaac Tobin so I was excited that Chad let us have a peek. Here he experiments with type treatments, collages pieces, and writes himself to-do lists, which I noticed can be multiple pages long! Hope you enjoy his work! Thanks Chad!
