And this was our 11 year anniversary: We spent a day at the ADC with friends and fellow designers, talking, discussing, performing, laughing, and reminiscing a tiny bit. Then it slowly morphed into a big party. We enjoyed it to the fullest—oh, how great it was to see so many familar and new faces. Thank you all for coming!
MC Paul Sahre, seconds before the start of the "conference".
With the line-up behind him, he welcomed everyone, utilizing his suave vocal chords.
The MC in action, in a rented tux.
Paul Sahre with Hjalti and Jan, who became grown men over the course of the past 11 years.
Paul's old record player, on top of boxes of old Young Guns 4 catalogs, designed by karlssonwilker back in 2004 (image courtesy Mason Currey/Print Magazine).
Scott, Emily, and her husband (and quite inquisitive MC) Paul...
..."Who is this guy?!", Emily asked repeatedly.
All these nice people that attended, hope they got something out of it.
Here's Jon Burgerman, sitting on the karlssonwilker sofa.
And now standing, while singing and playing his ukulele.
During the break, the INTERNMENT wall was revealed,...
...(almost) showing all of our interns over the past 11 years and what they had to say.
They all (except two that we were unable to establish contact with) contributed with answering few questions and portraits from back then and today.
After the break, James took the stage to do an incredibly amazing roast (one of his many undeservedly neglected talents of his).
This is actually a stand-in image for the great Mirko Ilic, who lectured on easy sex and art school. The actual image shows Stefan and Paul, warming up...
...to be joined by Hjalti and Jan.
Who is the best dressed? Yes, of course, Jan is.
Jan & James, still laughing about James' roast.
It was also Jan's birthday few days later, so there was cake.
And a short little thank you speech.
Then the party started, and many, many drinks... Also, our office got burglarized that same night. The cops were fantastic and it was almost worth the hassle to hang out with them in our studio. In any case, long live design. We don't have any other images....
