As designers, we’re brutal on our bodies. Throughout our days, we exceed our client's needs to make their brands healthy; and yet, we often neglect the primal necessity of meaningful self-care maintenance.
We've been on the hunt to build up our Modern Species family recently and we've found the illusive species, Jason Robinson! He is a free-spirited and contemplative creative that spends his time traveling, reading and making videos. When he's not working on design projects or flying off to another adventurous location, he can be found writing insightful articles on becoming a better human and getting lost in the wilderness.
Jason was given our usual list of questions and naturally, we've received some whimsical and profound answers. Continue reading to get a peak inside the mind of our venturesome creative. Put your hands together as we welcome Jason to the team!
Guess the cat's out of the bag!
Our newest work for Nutiva just won two exciting industry awards: the GDUSA Award for Health & Wellness Design and a Nexty Award at Expo East for progressive, innovative, inspiring, and trustworthy new products in the natural products industry. If you can’t tell, we are pretty chuffed with ourselves.
After many years of starting and stopping the certification process, we’re thrilled to announce that Modern Species is now a Certified B Corp! To understand how we feel, imagine compostable confetti bursting out of giant recyclable party poppers as we break into a happy dance choreographed to Party Rock Anthem. Yeah. It’s that awesome.
Oh, what a bittersweet year it's been for our graphic designer Carla and her husband Todd.
It all started with the birth of their second son, Grayson Alder Britt (our second grand species) and—spoiler alert—ends with her leaving Modern Species to move to Florida.
Mounting ecological and economical challenges are forcing designers to rethink how, and what, we design. In this talk and workshop we'll explore: how designers can think beyond human-centered design to understand the systems we're connected to and impacting? We'll also explore design thinking tools to help innovators design waste out of our products and services. Join us!
Breaking news! A new Species has been spotted and her name is Chloe Yeo. She is a talented designer filled with words of wisdom and, a lover of chips and fries—and most importantly—she has an uncontrollable love for dogs. When she isn't busily working on design projects or stopping to pet random dogs on the street, she can be found curled up on her couch watching movies or the lasest episodes of her favorite shows.
We sent Chloe our usual list of questions and we got some profound responses. Read her answers below to get a little insight into the mind of Chloe and join us in welcoming her to the team!
Bradlee is the newest member of the Modern Species family and our first ever intern. He is an illustrious young designer who is pursuing a Design BFA from Western Washington University. Bradlee approaches every project with a wide smile and positive energy that can be seen within his design solutions. When Bradlee isn’t clicking away at his work computer he can be found looking for Seattle’s best boba, binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race or just cackling loudly in a public space... and he keeps our office playlist fresh and hip and on the daily.
