We created a character and were featured in The Art Institutes 2012 National ad campaign. The toy shop where the spot was shot was designed using a lot of our art and some pieces that we collaborated on with a few friends. Here's Ai's official announcement: "The Art Institutes 2012 Design TV spot features the work of The Art Institute of California -- San Diego grads Josh Kenyon ('04) and Colby Nichols ('05), owners of Jolby, a design and illustration studio based in Portland, OR. Sir Beariston, the character shown in this spot, was created specifically for The Art Institutes." More info and a little interview here.
