We’re really happy to finally get our second collaborative project up and going. This one is entitled Pattern & Shape and consists of work from seven TSA contributors. The brief of the project was to design a t-shirt using a geometric shape and incorporating pattern. You can see the designs and read more about the project over at patternandshape.com.
To accompany the launch we built a mini site to display the shirts and purchase from. Big thank you to Matt Loseke for lending your masterful coding skills. It’s built with Sinatra and deployed on Heroku, more to come about that soon.

Kat Karnaky and Ben Peterson have been a couple for over ten years. Kat is a print designer for Anthropologie as well as a textile-printer and fashion designer. Ben is an amazing painter and–as I remember from a couple years ago–a great cook too. Both are graduates from the California College of the Arts, and they now live and work from a large converted building in the northern part of Philadelphia, PA.
Carla & Aaron Osborn are a husband and wife, Brooklyn based, highly creative couple known as Osborn Design Studios. They’re often seen selling their fair-trade products from Guatemala or personal works at the Brooklyn Flea. Having very different styles they manage to collaborate and grow their new business together. As we’ve learned from our past interviews there’s an advantage to having your respective strengths’ and ways of working. Communication’s key, which is something Carla and Aaron strongly believe in.
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.
