Who / What / When / Where / Why is Three Body Studio?
Three Body Studio is the graphic design office of Timothy Loren Steiner. Who is that, you might ask? Well, that's me. I’m a 29 y/o, graphic designer, art director, musician, father, husband, and otherwise restless creative.
I didn’t study graphic design. In fact, It wasn’t something I dreamt about growing up. I started dabbling by creating content in photoshop for a band I was in, loved the process, put in the hard yards, and haven’t looked back.
DO THE GROUNDWORK
Throwing s*** at the wall and seeing what sticks doesn’t count as a strategy. Ask the right questions - get the right answers. Good design has a thick foundation. Don’t skip out on it.
Some say you can’t rush art. I say the same about design. Rushed work lends itself to impermanence. A solid pace will last under the pump.
COHESIVE VS. COMPELLING
A balance of extreme importance. The two should complement each other, not overpower.
Create depth. Go for lasting impact. Like music and art, good design changes people and people change the world.
In an effort to bring my very best to the work that this studio produces, I have a select group of values that inform the process. Here's a few ideas that have been weighing on my workflow lately.
