Wes Adams and Becca Abbe have joined forces to set up a studio called In Residence. Both designers fall under a similarly art-led practice, eschewing a standardised notion of what graphic design actually means and why the hell that would matter to the sort of work they like to make, including sculpture, photography, film and of course, printed matter.
It’s not new ground – process led, making as thinking design – but there is something pretty cool and interesting about a shared aesthetic and broad output, presented in a smart and compellingly reserved way.
