Invisible Creature @ AIGA Charlotte
It was super inspiring to hear Don Clark of Invisible Creature talk about his prolific career doing work for almost all the bands you've ever heard of, NASA, Cinerama, Target, and tons of other folks. I've been following his work for a while, but I had no idea that he was actually the brain behind lots of my favorite designs.
I especially liked hearing about the process of designing album cover for the Foo Fighters record Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. It's such an iconic cover with an elegant but powerful design, and it was cool to hear Don talk about listening to the album in the studio with Dave Grohl, and then go home and have the classic freak out moment when he was trying to figure out what the art was going to be.
Don was super humble and interesting to listen to. I can't even scratch the surface of all the things he's worked on, so go check out his site.
