BEN VAN DUYVENDYK
ISAAC VALLENTIN & PASCAL HUOT (LOG C-B)
BEN VAN DUYVENDYK was raised in a burned down swamp along with sheep and earthbound fowl.
He frequented guidance counselor offices for what he drew in the margins of his notebooks. Since then he's done graphic design work for the federal government, Drawn & Quarterly publishing, countless album covers, gig posters, and horrible guest vocals for the denizens of the local music scene. He sketches compulsively, paints occasionally, and is irresistibly drawn to new methods of expressing ideas visually so he can do away with speaking altogether.
Currently he's delving further into the photographic with video work on the way, vainly taking a stab at a short graphic novel, and undertaking a gauntlet of collaborative work with local and not so local artists, musicians and writers.
Leonard Cohen continues to ignore his calls.
DANIEL MOISAN (Animal Haus) is fascinated by ideas, he is always looking for connections, new perspectives. He loves all ideas because they are profound, novel, because they are clarifying, because they are contrary, because they are bizarre. He is a futurist, he is a dreamer.
LOG CREATIVE BUREAU is the formal name attributed to the visual work of Isaac Vallentin and Pascal Huot. They met while playing music together in a band called Pony Girl (which remains an active project).
Isaac's background is in graphic design and still photography. He has additional experience in film and web development. He is currently most interested in type-driven projects that have outcomes as books, environmental graphics, or posters.
Pascal's background is in film and illustration. He has additional experience in graphic design and still photography. He is currently most interested in short films and installations for display in public spaces.
