We continue our weekly interview series about creative couples, and their experiences balancing a professional and personal lifestyle under the same roof. This week’s creative couple is Sean Auyeung and Anna Corpron, a husband and wife super duo known as Sub-Studio, a multi-disciplinary art and design studio based in New York City.

From hand-printed stationary, collaborative illustration projects, jewelry design and their fantastic blog they’ve kept themselves pretty busy in their home in the East Village. They both come from architecture backgrounds, but bring their personal interests to play in their highly collaborative projects.

Just wanted to let everyone know I have a new website. After 10 years I’ve decided to drop the 33rpm alias. What began as a focus on music and design has now grown into so much more. Please enjoy the new site.

DJ/producer and more recently fashion designer, Ellen Allien, seems very busy traveling, playing and creating. As a popular and well respected performer, Ellen draws inspiration from the many cities she visits, resulting in her own fashion line under the same name. She recently launched her 2009 winter collection, featuring some rather understated splashes of color and graphics, mixed with interesting arrangements of denim. I’ve enjoyed her many releases, in particular her collaboration with Apparat and her mix for Fabric. It’s great to see artists that make that disciplinary cross-over of music and design, and often interesting to see how one influences the other.

Out of the Windy City comes the poster/illustrator extraordinaire known as the The Delicious Design League. An interview can be read here by OMG Posters, and a video can be seen here by the Middle Mind Project. I’m continually impressed by the new talent emerging from the Mid-West.
