First thing you notice when speaking with Chuck D is that voice. It has the command of someone who has spent over 30 years as one of the most important MCs and intellectuals, not only on the subject of hip-hop, but of music and culture as a whole. Leader of the seminal musical force and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Public Enemy, Chuck is also an accomplished artist who earned his degree in graphic design at Adelphi University and became one of the originators of fusing logo work and art into hip-hop.

In a world of stealthy signs, slogans and messaging that relentlessly try to convince you to commit to certain lifestyles, Burrill has stripped down graphic design to its simplest form with profoundly straightforward phrases that can mean everything and something at the same time...

David Bowie Is... has to be one of the greatest exhibition names ever.

Let’s get that point out of the way immediately because we live in a time of extreme self-exposure and explanation, and I just want to make sure you’re with me...

Over the past decade, the worlds of design, fine art and commercial art have become more blurred than ever.

Over the years, we have worked with Tod Seelie on a few projects, and one of the reason we have worked with him and assigned him some open-ended projects is that we know that he sees the world differently then most.

That connection is the subject of Tod's new book, "Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York."
