website states: "World class
brands and lo-fi bands, entrepreneurs and raconteurs, cultural institutions and
craftsmen alike work with us because of our inventive thinking, our classic
design sense, our abundance of facial hair, and our honest approach to the
business of image making."
Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers started The Heads
of State over 10 years ago when they left Tyler School of Art, Temple
University and began to design two- and three-color silkscreen posters. A principal-driven
company, they now work with clients such as Nike, Subaru, Starbucks, Williams
Sonoma, The New York Times and bands such as REM and Wilco creating
illustration, branding, and book-covers, in addition to posters.
project for Nike for the Penn Relay Races was a particular challenge: create a
mural over the course of a three day period in the midst of a huge crowd.
Because the team understands that working with the familiar is sometimes the
best option, they designed a mural that was essentially a series of posters
that expanded along a wall over the course of the event. At a certain point,
part of the mural was ripped down exposing the slogan of the event,
Tapes. Shatter Records", underneath.
