Pecha Kucha 19

To Brett and the whole Pecha Kucha team,

it was a pleasure for Korn Design to be your design partner for Pecha Kucha 19 during Boston Fashion Week. We were equally excited to bring Youth Design back to Pecha Kucha now in its 89th summer. Thank you for hosting a nice tie-in between the greater design community and fashion by bringing it all local- a great curation and a fun evening!

We recently enjoyed a great evening at The Liberty with our friends from Karmaloop, with great fashion and great music (Bad Rabbits rocked it as usual). We got a chance to catch up with the boys from Society Original Products .

Graphic Intervention: 25 Years of International AIDS Posters

About a year and a half ago, my friend and colleague, Elizabeth Resnick (Professor and Chair of Graphic Design at Massachusetts College of Art and Design) invited me to lunch and asked me if I would be her partner in a new exhibition she was planning to cover 25 years of international AIDS awareness posters.

Without blinking an eye, I enthusiastically said yes! Little did I know what an enriching and transformational experience it would be. Thank you, Liz, for allowing me to be part of this ride. We edited over 4,000 posters from the collection of Jim Lapides, owner of the International Poster Gallery, searched for some key missing pieces, and ended up with 153 posters from 44 countries.

The exhibition, titled Graphic Intervention: 25 Years of International AIDS Awareness Posters 1985-2010, opened this week in the Stephen D. Paine Gallery at MassArt and will be on display through December 4th.

Best,
Javier

New Palm Site

Last week, The Palm Restaurant Group went live with it’s new website providing the first glimpse of the brand refresh and evolution Korn Design has been developing in close collaboration with The Palm over the past year. Established in 1926, The Palm is still owned and run by the fourth generation of the same families and has an incredibly authentic culture and commitment to quality that runs from top to bottom in this amazing company. Truly Cool at every level, we adore the chefs, servers, managers and the entire Palm leadership team.
