Tonight: DLXS Presents the Ames Bros

Barry Ament of graphic design duo the Ames Bros will speak to faculty and students in the Entertainment Business Auditorium tonight at 7 p.m. as part of the Digital Arts & Design program’s quarterly Designer Lecture Xperience Series.

The Ames Bros – not actually brothers but rather business partners Coby Schultz and Barry Ament – have designed logos and campaigns for Virgin Mobile, Nike, Honda, and the NBA, but their music-related work is what they’re most known for. They’ve designed the majority of Pearl Jam’s artwork, have created show posters and T-shirt designs for everyone from Radiohead to the Foo Fighters, and have even been nominated for two GRAMMY awards for the CD packaging they designed for Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy and Yield albums.

During tonight’s presentation Barry will show some of the duo’s work, talk about their design process, and share a few stories from their nearly 20 year career.
