Considering the weather wasn't very warm, we had a great turnout to the "Everything Must Go" exhibit at AIGA SPACE on First Friday March 7. Courtesy of the Phoenix Group, a selection of Kate's work was presented to AIGA Philly to sell in the SPACE from March 1-31.

She is renown for her work for Adidas, Vogue, Paul Smith, Samsung Olympics 2012, Wired, The Guardian, Google, Converse and Ray Ban. Music has been a large part of her studio's unique identity. She recently directed for artists Jessie Ware and Simian Mobile Disco. More amazing work by Kate can be admired over at www.studiomoross.com.
Okay, I won't lie, I bought this one (above). I couldn't help it! Such a great piece.
Lauren, Gina, Gabby, and I were trying to figure out all the hidden words in this poster above. After a while the different shapes and forms become recognizable as letters as your brain tries to put the puzzle together.
This was a close second for my tastes. The poster reads "Don't bore them with facts, enthrall them with story." I can't think of a better way to put it.
This one reads "It should blow your mind a little bit"
I love the throwback to 60's colors and shapes in this piece. It was a poster for a concert in 2006.
This tongue-in-cheek piece is all about bath products' package shapes and typography. I got a good giggle from reading it. Maybe I just like all the pieces? Either way you look at them, you stare. :)
A few wide angles of the SPACE set up gallery style for Everything Must Go. In case you were wondering, literally, we want to sell every piece this month. Reach out if you're interested and want to stop by for a look!
One of my favorite photos! I knew I would catch someone standing still long enough to be clear(ish) while everyone else moved around the room.
And then this happened...
We still aren't sure what/who these guys were all about or where they came from but it was pretty funny and slightly awkward.
What they are wearing appears to be a pendant light on a hook with a hand-crank to generate the electricity to light up the bulb.
And now, photos of people having a good time!
Nick was very good at holding the sign still. The others needed retouching (read: photoshopping) but it was a nice idea!
Hey look! That's my name! :-D
That's all for now!
Later this month we have Kate Moross speaking about her new book "Make Your Own Luck" followed by a book signing. It's Wednesday March 26 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Charter High School for Architecture and Design. The ticket prices are a total steal for this event!
