In 2001 designers Michael Cina and Michael Young began a departure from traditional commercial graphic work to focus on more experimental design projects. Spanning typography, illustration, 3D and video, they have been continually pushing the boundaries of graphic design and established YouWorkForThem as a platform to feature and sustain emerging design talent.
Almost 7 years later, YouWorkForThem has grown from a two man operation into a stable of designers and illustrators in studios from Bangkok to Minneapolis. Part stock library, bookstore and art dealer, their freshly redesigned site features a massive 1,800 products. Check out the video previews within some projects for an enhanced online product experience.
Some of our favorite projects include distinct typefaces like Black Slabbath available for $40 (pictured top). Flourishes offers unique and time saving stock embellishments for $20 (pictured above right). We also love the ultra-rare typography books you won't find for sale anywhere else like, Grid Systems in Graphic Design for $70 (pictured below left) and Wim Crouwel Alphabets for $75 (pictured below right). They even make some limited run and reasonably priced t-shirts like Eye on the Prize and The End Up, both available for $20. Check out the whole lot of YouWorkForThem projects on their new and relaunched site.
