The ‘Best Of’ from Artist Rep, Lindgren & Smith


It’s a new year and we all look forward to bigger and better things in 2014; setting goals, achieving them, winning new clients, and continuing to create really great work. As we look forward, however, we want to take a moment to look at the successes and highlights of 2013 and appreciate some of the exceptional work created by Lindgren & Smith talent. While we call this the “Best Of”, it represents just a small sampling of consistently high level work from their gifted artists.

StudioSayers Delivers with Infographics

Curtis Sayers of StudioSayers knows how to turn technical into amazing. With the influence of a pilot father and artist mother, Curtis spent countless hours as a kid constructing model airplanes with painstaking detail and we think his model building days paid off in a big way. Eventually pursuing a career as a graphic designer for high-tech companies, he decided to specialize in technical illustration in 2005, and quickly gained a reputation for visualizing information with creative precision. Today his clients rely on him to produce drawings that convince and inform their customers.

One of those clients was Air & Space/Smithsonian magazine. They asked Curtis to create several images to accompany a variety of articles. The illustration below was created to explain the secretive processes involved in stealth technologies; specifically the application of radar absorbent/deflective paint by robots onto the skin of modern fighter planes.

Take a look at a few more of Curtis’ images below and and his Workbook and Folioplanet portfolios, too.
