NEW WORK / HEIST by Arthur Cherry

Heist
by Jeff Diamant
Available at your local bookstore or on Amazon August 4th.

The bizarre true story of the criminals behind the second-largest bank heist in American history.

One night in a small North Carolina town, a down-on-his-luck guard at Loomis Fargo manages to steal $17 million-literally more than one ton of cash. Despite being caught on camera wheeling the money from the vault to the getaway van, David Ghantt makes off to Mexico before the FBI can blink.

There's just one hitch: Ghantt has entrusted the money to an oddball crew of accomplices who had wooed him into committing this massive theft in the first place-and who, he soon learns, are trying to take him out. Now one of the most wanted men in America with the FBI hot on his heels, Ghantt must figure out how to get his money, get away from a hit man, and get even.

In this outrageously entertaining book, Jeff Diamant, the Charlotte Observer's lead reporter on the case, offers the definitive inside account of this astonishing true story that has captivated American audiences on the news and now on the big screen in the major motion picture, Masterminds, directed by Jared Hess and starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson and KC's Jason Sudeikis.

NEW DESIGN / NEW SITE by Arthur Cherry

It's here. Our new brand design. Our new website. Our new blog. The look has changed but our core belief has not. We believe that good design can change the way we experience the world and therefore good design is good business. 

THE BRAND (RE)DESIGN

We started with the logo. Redesigned it to holistically contain both book design and brand design. Our focus for the future is on covers, both for books and brands. The logo works as a wireframe for the work we create. 

We work with clients from around the world but we are proud of our midwest foundation in Kansas City and wanted that reflected in the brand design. 

GOOD DESIGN
IS GOOD
BUSINESS

The colors and design has remained minimal to let the work speak for itself. 

THE SITE UPDATE

The gallery, or work section remains largely the same with an updated automatic slideshow of our work. The biggest update we made was to the blog you are reading here. In order to make finding, reading and sharing easier we consolidated everything into one site (no more blogger). We also made it easier to like, share and comment on individual posts. You can read a few of our newer featured articles here. More posts (old and new) will be updated soon but if you can't wait you can read more at our old site.

THE FUTURE

We have some exciting new things (including the return of COVER OF THE WEEK) planned. We are also very excited for what is to come and look forward to sharing with you. Be sure to follow us on Twitter or Instagram for the latest updates.
