Q&A with Graphic Designer Julian Montague

With a penchant for all things print, Julian Montague has built up an impressive collection of work including most recently his State of America series (which we previously gushed over). Based in Buffalo, New York, Montague takes on a heavy load of local projects, creating visual identities for local coffee shops, restaurants, and speakers series. But his work stretches well beyond the local sphere, including art installations (his Animals & Architecture exhibit debuts this summer at Galerie Le Toutouchic in Metz, France) and album covers for an international collection of musicians. Enamored with mid-century book design, he also operates the blog, Julian Montague Projects, sharing old books he finds on a nearly daily basis, perhaps providing inspiration for himself as he now designs book covers for local publishing company, Starcherone. We caught up with Montague via email to ask what else he's working on and what inspires him.

Janne Saario's Modern Skate Parks

We've reported on modern skate parks before, but rarely have we seen such a perfect marriage of skating and landscape design as the one embodied by the Finnish Janne Saario. Saario started skating when he was six, eventually got sponsored, and through his experience riding around the world he developed an interest in designing landscapes. He's got his own firm now, with a specialty in skate parks. Check out our slideshow of some of his designs as well as this great video that shows him at work and at play.
