hi rohan, thanks for having us at badlands journal hq. can you tell us a bit about the latest projects you’re working on?
a lot of branding at the moment! we've recently rebranded a predictive a.i. company, doing new logos or rebrands for several fashion labels, and designing packaging for several clients' new product ranges.
what influences would you say most inspire your design aesthetic?
i'm not sure if there's one thing that inspires or influences the badlands studio aesthetic, but in general we try and pare things back to their cleanest form - nothing superfluous.
how did the idea for badlands journal come about?
talisa and i both have editorial design backgrounds, and wanted to design something together that used those skills and allowed us to do things our own way. it also forced us to learn new skills - we've designed two custom typefaces for the journal, which we use throughout the site and the magazine, and learn how to integrate things like ecommerce for the journal's new shop.
what’s the best part about working with your partner on a day to day basis?
i get to work with my best friend :) we have complementary skills and styles, and bounce ideas off each other to reach the solution.
what would be your dream project to work on?
we'd love to work on a large-scale hospitality project, like a resort or luxury hotel, along the full scope of creative.
