Hello and long time no see! This blog/news section has been woefully neglected over the past year or so and while I’m pretty sure no one reads here anymore, I’m making it my “New Years Resolution in March” to update this thing on a regular basis. When we first started LP, it was just a blog where we threw up work and different things we were up to around SF and we realized this year that we missed doing that. So in an attempt to get back to our roots, we’ll be updating this space more frequently not only with work but thoughts on design/illustration and working together as a couple, as well as some of our adventures in the Bay Area and beyond. We also update our Instagram much more frequently if you’re interested.

Until then, here’s a mini update on what we’ve been up to the past year:

1. We feel incredibly fortunate to have worked on some pretty amazing once-in-a-lifetime projects this past year. Illustrating an in-store campaign for Target has been a dream project of ours ever since we graduated college and moved to Minneapolis, so to work on the 2014 Holiday campaign was really special for us. We also got to work with Tiffany & Co. on their Holiday campaign as well and we’re really proud of the work we did for both of these clients. I can’t speak highly enough of all the creatives involved with these two projects and we feel so lucky to have been a part of both of these campaigns. Also, I don’t think we will ever get sick of creating Christmas artwork-it seriously is the best. And you have an excuse to listen to Christmas music in June! Both of these projects are now on our site here & here and we’ll be updating the rest of the site with new work very soon.

2. Ryan opened up another design studio with the super talented Brian Gunderson called Stout. While we concentrate more on illustrative works, Stout is more branding and design focused. Go check ‘em out here!


3. And last but not least, this little munchkin joined our family last June. She’s pretty cute so I think we’ll keep her. ;)

Wishing you all the best!
