Brothers James (B.F.A. ’87) and Jon (B.F.A. ’03) Sholly, who both graduated from Herron with degrees in Visual Communication, went on to form Commercial Artisan, a graphic design studio that develops award-winning concepts for clients from local non-profits to the Fortune 500. Their credo is deceptively simple: There is no excuse for bad design. Their work proves this is no empty conceit, but a way of life.
Recognized in major forums and publications including Design Observer, Print, Eye,Emigré and Communication Arts, the Shollys also have claimed honors in the design competitions of the American Center for Design, the professional designer’s organization AIGA, and the popular aficionado’s blog “For Print Only”. The Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum has featured Commercial Artisan’s work in the exhibitions “Mixing Messages” and “Graphic Design: Now In Production”. Ink / paper / staples / glue captures in one venue for the first time highlights from 20 years of Commercial Artisan’s work.
