Way way back in the halcyon days of 2009 we featured a young (almost) graduate named Benjamin Wilkerson Tousley, a design student at Indiana University who’d had the good fortune to design Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House, arguably the best record of that year. Since then we haven’t heard much from Ben, though he’s been keeping himself busy. Not only has he completed his thesis, he’s also got two more Grizzly Bear albums in the bag and an enormous amount of work for other music clients.
Then there’s the non music-related work; ultra-crisp branding for New York Galleries, beautiful exhibition catalogues and even a book cover for Stephen Colbert. All this is on display on his new website (also beautifully designed) but for the time being let’s just enjoy that Shields album artwork and paintings by Richard Diebenkorn one more time. Lovely stuff!
