We hope everyone is staying healthy, positive and more importantly, staying away from other people by staying home.

As we’ve been working from home, we try to keep our daily routine as normal as possible by keeping our work hours the same and schedule daily status calls with Aiken, our studio manager.

Luckily our lovely clients are still keeping us busy so for the most part, it’s business as usual.

Being stuck inside doesn’t mean we can’t paint murals digitally at home. Here’s a quick mockup of one of our favourite murals we created and was digitally installed in our townhome in the west end.

This illustrated map of Vancouver was a commissioned illustration piece for CMPNY under the creative direction of Chris Zawada, partner and head of creative at Full Punch. Stay home and creative.

Here are a few close-ups of the illustration:

It’s Friday and if you’re feeling well, bored out of your mind from self-isolation, read German and like the work we do, then you’re in luck.

The Cover.

2020 has been a whirlwind so far. If you’d like to take a break from all the COVID-19 news and read something else, we’d like to share some good news.

Chairman Ting has been featured in a German design magazine called PAGE! Surprisingly, we’ve had quite a few pieces featured in Germany this year starting with our trade booth designs for Munchkin. It’s always cool to see our artwork go global. The magazine also features fellow Vancouverites such as Glasfurd and Walker–we love your work. Special thanks to the writer Sabine Danek for making the trek over to speak to us in person.

Headlining the feature article. Not too shabby eh?

This is also the first time our space, which has been represented under many names (Production Road, Forces of Nice, you name it we still haven’t picked one), has been mentioned in print. For those who don’t know, our studio, Chairman Ting, is located in a collective office space with fellow creatives Annie (LEMONNI), Hubert (Hubert Kang Photography), and Leah Gregg. When possible, we join forces on projects while still being able to work as individuals. It’s amazing to see how each person brings a unique set of talents and insights to the table given our different specializations and experiences.

Thanks again for the feature PAGE magazine. We hope this is the first step in bringing Vancouver’s creative talent to the world stage.

Now back to your scheduled COVID-19 news. We hope that everyone stays safe, practice social distancing, and use this opportunity to catch up on some rad personal projects. Netflix is a good second option.

New stickers arrived at the studio yesterday from Club Card.

Me so happy with how this logo illustration turned out for Miso Happy Club founded by our special pal, friend, studio mate, Leah Gregg. It’s been months in the making and I believe this is the 7th version of this logo design before we said ‘Yes! This is it.’ Happy Friday everyone!
