We're in the home stretch leading up to the inaugural American edition of Semi-Permanent, the design conference that's met great success over the last few years in Sydney and London. Held in New York City's Avery Fisher Hall, the event emphasizes creativity, bringing together image-makers and producers at the forefront of diverse fields like advertising, graphic design, web, graffitti, and animation. You may have already noticed that we've had the privledge to showcase some of their work in the above banner. Starting with an interview with tattooed modern American innovator, Joshua Davis, over the course of the next few weeks we'll present a series of q+a's with some of today's main players from Semi-Permanent's line-up.
Joshua Davis park his car, attends to his 2-year-old daughter, and talks to his wife, all while agreeably juggling our interview on his cell phone. Multi-tasking is nothing new to this 34-year-old illustrator, painter, and designer, who, over the last decade has been winning awards, creating work for the likes of Sony, Diesel, and Wired, lecturing globally, and teaching at New York's School of Visual Arts. Here, he homes in on current experiments with proximity-based design, the punk tunes that get him motivated, and the new frontiers of fashion.
