Three Bears Design
Awhile back I was intent of doing some articles on regional artists who design CDs and come up with awesome flyers for bands in the Midwest. Unfortunately, out of the half dozen companies I tried to get a hold of, only Three Bears Design actually wrote me back!
I'm glad they did, because they are one of the best. In fact, I really like this one they did:
Never did have too much luck on that design company series. I also tried to do a whole thing on regional booking companies and NOT ONE RESPONDED BACK. Jeez.
So three cheers to Three Bears for coming through, and here's a bit of their history:
Three friends, "all operating individually as illustrators, graphic designers, and artists of varying kinds in the depths of the forests of Ohio, realized delightedly that if they were to join forces, so much more creative radness could be achieved than if they continued to operate on their own. The joint venture was embraced wholeheartedly, and a name was chosen. Quite fittingly, Three Bears Design takes its name from the ursine creatives who make it up," the company wrote.
Since then the design group has grown to more than three.
"In the process of drawing, painting, designing, sewing, photographing, sculpting, and making wonder for friends, these furry fingers have joined paws with all number of other talented animals everywhere, enabling Three Bears Design to undertake pretty much any visual adventure anyone could throw at us," they said.
Now Three Bears Design is hoping to help out those seeking artistic visions in any form.
"If you can think it up, dream about it after eating imported cheeses, or describe it using fancy or unfancy words, we can probably make it happen for you. We're more than a design company. We're an ever-growing collective of friends who like to create exciting, fun visual work for other friends. We have an ethic of aesthetic friendliness, an approach to making things that finds itself rooted in time spent hanging out with people as much as it is rooted in artistic ability and vision," they said.
