I discovered artist/designer David Schwen when I saw this great graphic (below) he created for Bonobos, my favorite menswear brand. I love this image because it includes one of my favorite motifs – that of King Kong climbing an iconic structure – and that it so simple ad whimsical.

It turns out Mr. Schwen is quite a prolific designer and operates Dschwen, a creative design firm.

About Dschwen: “Dschwen is a creative studio based in Minneapolis, with collaborators across the country. Creatively led by David Schwen, the studio’s keen understanding of the relationship between brands and consumers paves the way for compelling design.

In addition to the work they do for clients, Dschwen’s work can be found on consumer products – many of which can be found with the fine folks over at Society 6.
