Constantly, I’m drawn to the work of designers who are also artists. Michael Cina (Art | Design) sits in this overlap, also finding himself in a collaboration with Ghostly International, a long-term partnership that is not often common in design. You can see Cina in his work at Ghostly, but the converse is just as true. Recently, in conjunction with VSCO, Cina has produced a limited edition book to document 100 album covers and concept art, titled A Century of Artifice. “My hope is that it will give the viewer a unique glimpse into the diverse work I have done in the last six years with Ghostly. It is really a special thing when an artist and company can work hand in hand… I feel that the sum is greater than the parts, and this book will show the thought that I put into each project.”
