A few weeks ago I discovered the work of LA-based designer and illustrator Geoff McFetridge. After design school, McFetridge art directed the Beastie Boys’ magazine Grand Royal before starting his own studio, Champion Graphics. Recently his work was featured on t-shirts and Jack Spade’s blog. What I really love Geoff’s work is how graphic and abstract it is. His paintings are simple and minimal in form, but there’s a great sense of design in each. He also has a great sense of color. But above all, you easily see his sense of humor and wit. Nothing I love more than a designer that doesn’t take himself too seriously. How refreshing! Weeks ago, a friend alerted me that Lonny Magazine featured a profile of Jonathen Adler & Simon Doonan’s Manhattan apartment in their September 2013 issue, and to my great surprise, guess who’s work Adler is displaying in his living room? Geoff McFetridge! Great choice!
