Max Amato never loses his temper, unless he loses a game of ping-pong. Though many designers try to follow in his footsteps, they simply can’t because he has too many shoes. Favorite swatch: PMS 572C. Portfolio: www.maxamato.com
Nicholas Lomboy’s bedhead has inspired many a designer to throw away their conditioner and comb. Preferring the road less traveled, he aspires to skate switch. Favorite swatch: PMS 485C. Portfolio: www.nicholaslomboy.com
Brendan Mcauliffe is our rep from the Pacific Northwest. A world explorer, his favorite method of transportation is his bike, Josie (like the Blink song). Favorite swatch: PMS 651C.Portfolio: http://www.brendanmcauliffe.com/
Justin Nowak spends his free time playing first-person shooters while cuddling with his hamster, Snuggles. An aspiring egg chef, he still has Dominoes on his speed dial. Favorite swatch: PMS 7494C. Portfolio: www.nowakcreative.com
It has almost been a year since Justin Timberlake released "The 20/20 Experience" and he has not only been receiving recognition for his music, but his LP and album designs have been noticed by Graphis as well. Done by LLoyd&Co, this project was awarded gold in the 2014 Graphis Design Annual. The work is very reflective of his music. The sophistication of the project parallels the his lyrics and verses in his hit "Suit and Tie". With the artist depicted in a tuxedo, and limiting the colors to only black, white, and gold it delivers a 1920's Gatsby aesthetic—elegance, sophisticated, and exclusive.
