Hey, Philly: How about a lesson in perspective? Artist Scott Albrecht isn’t interested in the moving parts that sway them, those stimulating variables we unwittingly absorb; he’s interested in how we exert them as members of a sentient community.
Scott Albrecht's work is a realized cooperation of his artistic trainings (formal and passed-down; digital and tangible) and his day-to-day motions. The clickable meets the material meets the unscripted, essentially, via woodworking, graphic design, collaging and the pairing of ink and paper.
In our second installment of "Wooden Toy" Kris Evans chats up Josh Manoles, who has worked for RVCA and Element Skateboards as a graphic designer and who is continually influenced by skateboarding's ability to make you look at the world differently.

Fear not, publishers: print is not dead. Unattractive print is dead. RISD Museum presents Graphic Design: Now in Production, an art exhibition displaying new-age graphic design and the mediums with which it’s utilized.
