After a long and exciting journey, we are finally ready to present our new studio to the world. The outcome has exceeded all expectations and every detail has come together seamlessly to represent and define the spirit of Candy Black. We wanted to create a space that not only fulfilled the expression of what we feel a Creative Studio should look like, but also showcase our ability to combine Graphic and Interior Design.
Candy Black is a Design Studio working in the fields of branding, creative direction, graphic design and interior design. We believe that design should be memorable and effective and not be restricted to one particular format. We are always on the look out for new ways to answer the briefs of our clients, offering both cutting edge design and new media to traditional craft and production. Although we specialize in graphic and interior design, we like to work across all media in order to maximize the potential of the projects we undertake. Visit www.candyblackblog.com for more photos.
“Wolfbite is the slightly wonkey nail in the plasterboard wall on which to hang the collaborative illustrations we create.”
Web designer and illustrator Daniel J Diggle and fellow illustrator Jessica Allan created Wolfbite as a little home to their creative collaborations and as a place to display future collab’s with other artists too.

The concept for this video was to simulate a contrast between the rugged user made animated gif graphics across the internet, and dated yet unachievable beauty advertising imagery. Add persian and arabian myspace desktop graphic influences, and the rest is history. Here are some of the designs we created to influence our animations and direction throughout the video with Maya. A link to the video can be found on our site here.

2010 site update
Hello my dear KDU friends—been a busy bee lately, and have a bunch of new illustration pieces. Check out my blog for updates
Sara Blake | Hello ZSO | New York City
Knitting is a system of loops, each held in place by the one below. The cumulative effect of knitting is what gives it texture and subtance.
Here, I knit a lace-weight fiber into the bulkiest tape, and knitted that into a heavy fabric. Though it appears to be only endless repetition, the recursion, the infinite plane of this piece is as complicated as any history, map, or identity.
This project was my experiment in making garments that were designed only for the specific individual to whom they were given. I wanted to make pieces that were inspired by and suited to a single person, to their aesthetic and their needs. In an economy driven by material need and aesthetic monotony, I wanted to be the universal grandma, unencumbered by the invisible hand of the market. What happens when the hegemony of the market doesn’t bear on production? How do our strictly personal relationships impact the art that gets made? At least in part, it seemed that the better I knew someone, the more elaborate my designs became. The more I knew of someone’s taste, the more important my choice of fiber was. The more I knew of someone’s personal life, the more I was concerned for their physical warmth! And at the very least, we found out that CUNY Law has a new mascot: the cabled owl.
Go to the gallery to see more pics.
Thanks to Justin Lopez for the photos, and CUNY School of Law for the inspiration and models.
I’ve launched my site recently, utilising an interesting open source framework which fetches image and information from Flickr based on what I’ve uploaded to a set in my stream. The site itself is showcasing a good mix of personal, education and commercial related work. Enjoy browsing.
Created for the July Issue of Advanced Photoshop Magazine 2010.
It came down to this and another image for the cover, unfortunately the other image was chosen. I was lucky enough to be featured on the cover of the German edition however, as they loved it that much!
