Meet the works of Jolby – a creative duo with a backstory nearly as cool as their designs. Here’s the cocktail napkin version: after meeting in design school in San Diego, these two design-minded guys went their separate ways; Josh to Chicago, Colby to Portland. But like any dynamic duo, they didn’t let a measly 2k miles stop them from riffing off of each other’s innovative styles.
Together (in spirit anyway) they produce the works of Jolby Studios, a collaborative hand-drawn style that is so intricate, it leaves most viewers with a bent nose. I think their design works beautifully on the classic Gibson guitars they created for Music Saves Lives charity auction.
I mean, what’s a few thousand miles between friends anyway? At least in Jolby’s case, distance makes the art grow fonder.
