Those annoying Instagram filters that make all of our pictures have a similar feel, sometimes help you create that one image that’s truly unique and beautiful. This is mine.

Illustration By… Migrate Design!

February 16th, 2012

For the past couple of weeks, we have been working on a new project, for a brand new client.

We are extremely grateful and excited to illustrate a children’s book. Compared to designing logos and corporate banners, this is a nice change of pace and style. As much as we appreciate everything we do, we welcome variety, and feel fortunate to be able to handle various facets of graphic design. We temporarily traded our computer mouse for paint brushes. We welcome the opportunity to work on a project that allows us to fully explore and make use of our creative energy. We love to get our hands covered in paint – and sometimes our nose ;)

We’ll make sure to give more details upon release, with additional information about the book, and where to find it.

If you wrote a book, or if you think of writing one and you need an illustrator, please contact us. We would be more than happy to work with you!

Art Pilots Is In The News!

October 4th, 2011

It was yesterday, during our weekly Art Pilots class, that the local newspaper came for a visit. Tammy Marashlian, a senior education writer, and Jonathan Pobre, photographer, work for The Signal. They both have a special interest for the Art Pilots program. Tammy wrote a very sweet article in today’s paper, reminding everyone that it’a all about experimenting and having fun. Thank you both for taking the time to come and see us during our “art-ivities”. We really appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm, as the popularity of the program keeps rising.

Art Pilots’ New Season

September 19th, 2011

Art Pilots just started its new season with a new team of student/teachers from CalArts. Darcy And Géraldine will continue to host and supervise this amazing program. The popularity has become considerable, and all 42 spots have been filled the first day. A big thank you to The Newhall Elementary School for giving us our own classrooms, and to the California Institute Of The Arts, without whom this wonderful art workshop would not be possible. This is going to be a great year!

New ARTree Mural in Newhall

August 20th, 2011

“Take a drive down Railroad Avenue in Newhall and it’ll be hard to miss.” Thirteen faces, 17 feet high and 130 feet long. It is the second in what’s planned to be a series of art projects to pop up in Santa Clarita. “You might recognize some of these kids around your neighborhood, and they’re not from some model agency or somewhere.” This is the latest ARTree project, inspired by a former tagger-turned-popular European artist who goes by the name of J.R.. His work can be seen throughout the world today.

We are so proud of the ARTree for this exciting and unique art project. This is one that Newhall will remember, and not just because of its size, but certainly because it made a lot of kids feel special, and it gave them a sense of pride and ownership. Bravo ARTree!

The ARTree is Santa Clarita’s newest community arts organization.  It’s made up of artists, performers, musicians, teachers, writers and community leaders.  Their mission is to create a home where art, in all its forms, can thrive and inspire. To learn more about The ARTree and how you can get involved, visit www.theARTree.org.

Art Pilots Expo

May 11th, 2011

Another season of Art Pilots is coming to an end. As tradition would have it, we’ve exposed all of the children’s art in the L-Shape gallery of CalArts. In honor of the kids, parents and family were welcome to this event. This is a wonderful way to reward those little artists, and recognize their hard work and dedication to the arts. Thank you all for your attendance and your support.

For more information about Art Pilots, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We designed this poster for the Santa Clarita Valley Education Foundation. This is for the Bags Of Books Program. The poster is displayed in the Borders store of Valencia, and the program is going strong. If you haven’t already, rush to Borders, and offer a book to Newhall Elementary School. Happy shopping ;)

Arts Pilots In The Parks

December 4th, 2010

Despite the cold and menacing clouds, a number of people came to visit our booth at the Santa Clarita’s Literacy and Arts Festival, Saturday Nov. 4th. Three students from CalArts and Géraldine exposed pictures from the kids of Newhall Elementary School. They explained the principles of Art Pilots, how they teach art and interact with the kids, and how this is benefiting them tremendously. Art Pilots is going strong, and everyone’s enthusiasm is very rewarding.
