2011 - 2014 Collaborative Studio
Hot Sundae was a studio practice comprised of myself and artist/designer Nicole Killian. The studio practice was a manifestation of our belief in collaboration, fun, and positivity, and fueled by a deep desire to produce work that was rooted in "goodness" . This desire to add positivity was inspired by what we saw as a seemingly endless stream of either "cynicism and over-seriousness" or "why bother caring" running through the personal/political voice of many designers. Taking on the very queer belief that positivity and fun will inspires great change we were able to imbue our personal and professional work with a sense of not to cool to care, friendly, criticality.
