Colorola has created a new logo for Los Angeles photographer, Paige Craig, and we’re stoked about it. Paige’s Farm Her photography seems somehow analog, as if her sun drenched images were developed in a deep-red-lit darkroom— and then dipped in honey. She’s our darlin urban farm girl, natural and naughty in one. Photographer Paige Craig [...]
The creative luminarias of Brook & Lyn have us absolutely dazzled.

Our Man in Texas When Stuart Patterson, AD at Colorola, was commissioned by Texan socialite Natalie Renda to create a large ceiling mural for a new Dallas restaurant, he was quite certain that it was going to have something to do with the Ewing Ranch. The fact is, Patrizio, the actual venue, is located about [...]
In an ongoing effort to improve our services and stay on top of media trends, we pay close attention to a variety of services, technologies, pizza, where to find a great cup of coffee and of course comfy spots to relax and have a drink (or two). Fortunately for us, we are constantly being introduced [...]
Creative Urban Redevelopment Alliance Colorola is helping to organize a coalition of creatives with the intention of improving the urban setting.

When I was asked to provide the poster artwork for Duran Duran’s Coachella performance, I saw it as an opportunity to finally pay homage to Patrick Nagel, an illustrator whose method and style influenced me more than any other. I had always found the Nagel illustrations in my dad’s Playboys to be far more interesting [...]
I’ll admit, I’m not a huge fan of Coachella, the music festival. I prefer my acts to perform on one stage rather than several at the same time. I’m also more comfortable in the rolling greens of Glastonbury, for example, than the scorching stretch of desert just east of Palm Springs. Actually, I’m more comfortable [...]

Here’s the main image for LATC’s Face of the World, aka, their Fall season. I feel like the Historic Core, as it’s been designated by downtown LA booster types, saw it’s heyday just around the Wall Street Crash of 29. With the exception of a few New Deal building constructed for civic aims, the late [...]
The LATC’s fall season, Face of the World starts in September, which means we’ve got to go to print with the collateral last week. Keeping the posters very title-centric, which might prove to be a more attractive solution than the time consuming illustrations that I had planned to do. I’m going to try out that [...]
