Christopher Norris was born in Salem, MA, where he lived until moving to Florida at the age of 13. After graduating from Pinellas County Center for the Arts, he was a member of several punk bands, touring internationally. Because he was the “kid who could draw”, Norris began designing records for these and other bands, and to this day is closely associated with several major and independent label bands. In addition to his design work, he is known within creative circles as Steak Mtn., and has established a reputation for his unique gallows humor aesthetic, exhibiting his original artworks internationally.
Paul likes to simplify, simplify, simplify. His work is the perfect example of creative thought and concepts being applied visually to a project. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.
Bas Koopmans is one of those amazing dutch graphic designers. His work is all about simplicity; most of the time he uses no colours in is work, just black and white, and tries to experiment with elements like typography and photography. Another main ingredient is his great sense of humour, and we love humour!

1/1 is a collection of experiments with letterpress printing. The constructive elements of IKEA® products substitute the traditional wooden printing letters and they become the printing die for limited editions. So can a stool or a door be used to impress their outline railtracks can become typographic, figurative or abstract compositions. The same elements can then be assembled back in the objects they belonged to. By doing so they get back their functionality, but they keep a sign of the printing process, they took part in and become themselves unique industrial products.
