Victore & Rubino, Reaping the Whirlwind

Another New York must-see by Stephanie Murg.

“Young Guns” invade the Art Directors Club of New York on Thursday evening, but Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, and rugged mustaches will (probably) be nowhere in sight. The mavericks in question are two of our favorites: James Victore and Chris Rubino. They’ll discuss not their dizzyingly vast array of client work but some of the projects they pursue for themselves. Expect knock-your-socks-off visuals and creative boundary-pushing that, in turn, fuels the work they produce for clients.

You’re probably already versed in Victore, who helms “an independent design studio hell-bent on world domination,” among other things. And whether you know it or not, you’ve seen Rubino’s work on everything from Banana Republic bags to Outkast‘s DVD. After Young Guns Live, stroll a dozen blocks uptown and check out the Original Penguin Store, for which Rubino created the pitch-perfect visuals, merchandising, and packaging.

We’ll be there, hoping that someone has the foresight to open and close the event with Bon Jovi’s “Blaze of Glory.”
