Of all the end-of-year good wishes we receive, we always look forward to the one by Ben Loiz. This Los Angeles graphic artist never ceases to disappoint with the winsomely considered visuals he conceives each winter, and this season’s gift to those who received his well-wishes via email yesterday is filled with all the meditative joy, delight in color and form, and clever abstraction we’ve come to admire and enjoy in his work.
Ben, by the way, is the inventive artist behind the A+R logo. As we were getting set to open our business in 2005, we went to him to collaborate on a brand that would symbolize our professional and personal connection in this enterprise. Ben delivered.
