Burr Cave

When I met Danny Miller almost four years ago, the New York-based artist was in the midst of transitioning from fine art to serious graphic design. His art embraced figurative mindscape and geometric abstraction; and though his medium of choice was more hand to paper and canvas, the graphic design influence was apparent in his paintings and drawings.

The former graphic design neophyte has since transformed into an industry pro. He’s worked with some big names like Atlantic Records and Truth & Soul Records doing packaging design, logos, and branding. And though his work now manifests a digital angle, he still incorporates hand-drawn illustrations. That’s precisely why I’m such a fan. I like that he breathes old school flair into his designs. Danny doesn’t rely solely on his computer to create; he still gets his hands dirty. He makes what could be stale and utilitarian more exciting.

He recently launched The Bear Cave, a “multidisciplinary design studio specializing in brand identity, creative direction, web design, silkscreen, and illustration”. It’s a joint effort between him and friend Mindy Ryu. Check out their work.
