I’ve been here for years. But yes, Changethethought.com will be making a return in the year 2016. An entirely new site design is on its way. I will also be acknowledging a more roundabout manner of content that will more holistically acknowledge the life and times of a post millennium creative. So much has changed. I’ve tried and failed at running a studio, and in several iterations. And I’ve chosen to come home back to where it all began. Changethethought.com is and always has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. In the past 5 years I’ve become a father twice over. And now more than ever I worry about the future. And I think this website has a role to play and a voice to be heard and shared. It’s time to shift focus back to where it belongs and plug this sucker back in. Much has changed since I unexpectedly fell silent in 2013. But I believe 2016 might be the absolute perfect time to begin anew. Call it a feeling.
I’ve since been reinventing myself as a Creative Director, Art Director, Director, Animator, Designer, Illustrator, Brand(er) and Writer again via a new personal experimental playground here: The Changethethought Studio
I’ve teased a relaunch of this website before but this is not a tease. The fury will be coming again soon and this time I intend to light a fire much brighter than what burned before. Thank you for your past support and I hope you can stay the course with me in the future. I chose the name of this site for a reason. And I intend to work towards fulfilling the promise the name makes. I’ll be speaking with you all again very soon.
Expect daily posts and a robust on demand storefront featuring lots of design-centric, politically loud-mouthed and typographically observant merchandise.
Watch this space.

“For FITC Amsterdam 2013, we created these titles based on the creative designed by mr Bradley G Munkowitz (aka GMUNK)
Since Bradley was already working on the creative for the print campaign of FITC Amsterdam 2013, and we loved his design work, we decided to step in and give FITC a complete and cohesive visual package instead of visually creating something completely new or different.
And so here it is.. our “Pyradical” main titles for FITC Amsterdam 2013. Pure disco!”
Produced for FITC Amsterdam 2013. More info at fitc.ca/amsterdam
Design & Concept: GMUNK (gmunk.com/)
Production & Direction : ONESIZE (onesize.com)
Type Font Design: Brian M Gosset (briangossett.com/)

The soundtrack was composed and designed by our friends @ MassiveMusic Amsterdam
Man I want to go to this so bad this year. Hmm. How to talk my wife into letting me go to Barcelona.
Graphic design just does not get hipper or more ‘now’ than it does at Pure Magenta.

BVD has recently updated their website and portfolio with some absolutely inspiring work. It’s an equally inspiringly designed website as well.

At this point you could call Un.titled a ‘classic’ contemporary graphic design firm.
There are just so so many pop-culture inspired illustrations brimming over Sir Mike of Mitchell’s cup. Quick. Drink up.
Trüf is a Santa Monica based creative studio ‘obsessed with designing better brands’. It looks like they pointed that obsession first at themselves with some excellent branding work for their own studio.

“A chorus of women are borne from the movements of a single dancer in this dreamlike “pas de trente-deux.”
‘Choros’ premiered at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2012 and has gone on to play dozens of festivals worldwide. The film is currently broadcast in Europe by Canal+.”

I am enjoying the dramatic, modern and eerily contemplative structural photography of German Art Director/Photographer Nick Frank.

Manchester based Eskimo Creative has launched a new website with some cracking new work presented in a clean and considered manner. Very English.
Advertising is mostly ugly, distractingly noisy clutter. So why not make some improvements or at the very least some art.
