HOW Magazine International Design Award for Three Sixty Five

It's always nice to be recognized for your work, but when your work is rewarded by a magazine that you have read for years, well, that is awesome. Presto Art's "Three Sixty Five" by Martin LaCasse was recognized with an Editorial Merit from HOW magazine. HOW is a magazine for designers and graphic professionals that features the best and brightest in everything from advertising to video game design. It also feels good because the work judged was from all over the world. So thanks to HOW and thanks to everyone who bought the book.

A Novel Idea? The Art of Dave Fox - Available Now

Dave Fox's new book has hit the warehouse...and filled it up. Dave's new book is by far the most color packed book we have ever seen. I wonder if the print house thought they were going to use so much ink. I am talking about a serious saturation and a varnish flood to hold it all together. I think it's fair to say the book is over stimulating to say the least. When was the last time a book printed on paper made that claim? We are psyched with the final product and know that fan's of Dave are going to be thrilled and non-fans will become fast subscribers to the unique stylings. Available now from Presto Art -A Novel Idea? The Art of Dave Fox.
