The Heads of State is a collaborative effort and the studio of designers, Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers. The duo have been a tag-team powerhouse since shortly after graduating from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. The pair found early success screen-printing posters for the Philadelphia music scene and were able to leverage that exposure to obtain larger clients; both larger bands, like Chicago-darlings Wilco, and larger publications, like The New York Times. Their recent work gracefully balances refined vision and a creative quirk, which we can only imagine was honed over many late nights with screen and a squeegee.
At Ballista we admire their can-do-attitude and their ability to raise themselves up by their bootstraps. We also have to imagine that anytime they book a meeting or luncheon for the Heads of State they arrive to much more fanfare than they expected… but we are of the opinion they deserve it.
