02.05.19 — Stamps featuring Ellsworth Kelly’s paintings

Stunning tribute to the artist Ellsworth Kelly (1923–2015). How beautiful are these USPS stamps? Kelly pioneered a distinctive style of abstraction based on real elements reduced to their essential forms. His artworks include paintings, sculpture and works on paper. The 20 stamps on the pane feature 10 pieces, each represented twice: Yellow White (1961), Colors for a Large Wall (1951), Blue Red Rocker (1963), Spectrum I (1953), South Ferry (1956), Blue Green (1962), Orange Red Relief (for Delphine Seyrig) (1990), Meschers (1951), Red Blue (1964) and Gaza (1956). A detail from Blue Yellow Red III (1971) appears in the selvage.

We have created this poster out of the super tiny kiwi seeds, a process as tricky as the lesson itself. Our intention is to practice this lesson daily and apply in everything that we do.

06.19.16 — This thing about cows

The reason why we call ourselves Milk Bar Design is because we absolutely adore all milk producing animals but especially cows. We have created 5 self initiated projects to date that involve cows so it sort of became our thing. Photo shown is from a miniature gold course project and naturally our obstacles were an army of red cows more on this here.
