SOMETIMES DEEP & SOMETIMES LIGHT
Thoughts on Design
Our talented, in-house photographer, Trask Bedortha, beautifully captures our clients' stories and the work that we do for them. While his images regularly inspire us, we happen to think that his shots of our interior design work are some of his best. Here's a sampling — prepare to feel an intense urge to dine out.
Timeless design is something that we're forever chasing and very rarely capturing. It doesn't succumb to passing trends. It feels accessible and elegant at the same time. It's simple, but not simplistic. Perhaps most importantly, it honors the fundamentals of our craft.
Last year, Drawn accented its new building with Pantone Ultra Violet 18-3838 just months before it was named Color of the Year. We think we might be on a roll, so our creative director, Bryan Taylor, wrote a letter to Pantone expressing his choice for Color of the Year 2019.
That awkward moment when you realize that there's no such thing as a design project that isn't human centered.
The very nature of design demands that we consider an end user and his or her experience with our work. If you haven't been practicing human-centered design all along, you've been doing it wrong.
How the Bard meets our needs as a dynamic agency (and helps us to meet those of our clients) in an ever-changing creative landscape.
Ninety percent of the materials used in the Bard’s construction were salvaged from other forgotten stories, which means that Drawn's new space is steeped in history and rich with texture. Just like the agency itself and each of our clients, our building has a story.
Shakespeare's Juliet once asked, "What's in a name?" In our building's case, quite a lot. Here's the story (and philosophy) behind Drawn's new HQ, told in three parts.
Whether created by time or intention, texture tells a story; it can reveal an object's true nature. So, can texture inspire better design?
While symmetry has its merits, it can also prove a restriction when it comes to design. Here, we explore both sides of the symmetry debate — where do you stand?
