Design Army: The Art of Storytelling


Design Army. Sounds scary, doesn't it? Well this DC based design firm is anything but. They are a great example of what a small design studio can be. Headed up by husband and wife team Jake and Pum Lefebure, Design Army is a mostly print based firm working from an editorial lens. Their work for the Washington Ballet, The One Show, and Neenah Paper (just to name a few) is awe inspiring. With gorgeous photography, refined typography, and an amazing concept; Design Army produces work that is envied by all in the business of design. They are here to conquer.
