client: Seed Magazine
art director: Tyler Lang

After a lengthy hiatus coincident with the creation of the critically acclaimed art + music + videogame project Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP for iPad & iPhone (a collaboration with noted composer Jim Guthrie), Superbrothers Inc is now actively seeking interesting editorial & advertising illustration gigs.

To mark this moment we have dug up 'Information Superhighwave', an illustration for an article about a bottleneck that had been forming as the world's oceanographers struggled to convert the world's collected oceanographic data into Google Earth's format to allow at-home geotourists & would-be seafarers the ability to virtually explore the deep blue sea.

Superbrothers Inc was founded in 2003, over the years our original brand of remarkable pixel artwork has appeared in the pages of Wired, The New York Times, The Walrus and elsewhere. | the kingdom of the cloud

Now seems to be a great time to refinance your mortgage - unless already low interest rates drop even further. A Shoot-the-moon game seemed to be the best symbol for guessing when rates will be at their lowest.
