All That Sparkles: 12th Night Austin

12th Night is upon us once again, and we hope you’ll join us tomorrow night to dance through the streets of East Austin and shake off those winter blues. As we wrote about the tradition leading up to our first (amazing, beautiful) year of 12th night: “This is your chance to shake off the winter […]

Christmas on The Moon

It’s that time of the year again, where the temperatures drop, the stars shine a little brighter, and somehow even surrounded with people, we often feel a little bit more removed and alone. What would Christmas feel like on the Moon? Desolation, longing, quietude, and triumph. We’ve walked up there, on that big glowing orb. […]

Between the Sea and The Stars

We’re not sure why we’re so late in posting about this — but November of last year we got married! And of course, a wedding of a graphic designer means that there were many things to design, and while we have already posted them in our portfolio, we realized that we hadn’t yet mentioned them here […]

New Traditions

We’ve been meaning to write about 12th Night Austin ever since it happened – and we’re just now getting a chance to sit down and really process how amazing that evening was. It was estimated that we might have had over 700 (!!) people in the parade and it truly was a night to remember. […]

A Very Twin Peaks Christmas

Here at Recspec HQ, we decided to have a very special Christmas this year, with a very special tree. We watched all of Twin Peaks again in its entirety, to get ready for our 2nd Twin Peaks dress up party in February (details coming soon, click the link to view photos from our last one) […]

For the Love of Lovejoys

On August 5th, Lovejoys, an Austin institution that has been open for over two decades, opened its doors to the public for the last time. Lovejoys has been our favorite watering hole (and really, only bar that we would ever really frequent) for the entirety of the time that we’ve been in Austin, and it closing has […]

Faint Dreams Creeping

Besides the Show No Mercy day party, the other highlight of our SXSW was getting to see Chelsea Wolfe and her band perform live. Her music is a mix of haunting folk, deep doom, and delicate electronics, which all come together to produce some incredibly dark and beautiful music. SXSW is a strange time for […]

Show No Mercy X Recspec

Whew! SXSW is over, and now that the dust has settled we can take a little look back on one crazy, crazy week. Definitely one of the best parts of it for us was getting to do the projections for Pitchfork‘s Show No Mercy day party at ND – with Pallbearer, Pilgrim, Black Tusk, The […]

Firework Design Love

Happy 2012, everyone! We followed our yearly tradition and stocked up over the holidays on fireworks for the rest of the year (or at least until the 4th of July!). One of the main things I love about fireworks are the classic packages, the weird typography and illustrations, and the bright colored cardboard sleeves. Here’s […]
