It began with two dudes who grew up in small Ohio towns, both majoring in illustration. They bonded in school over bad ’80s haircuts, corndogs and good music—eventually teaming up to silkscreen gig posters way down south. Particularly for East Atlanta’s storied Echo Lounge back in the ’90s, a place that brought in some of the greatest indie bands of the day. Eventually they landed on the Methane aesthetic: bold, minimal influenced by the colors of mid-century design, always a little rough and handcrafted. Now they’ve got their very own design studio, and everyone from Dave Matthews Band to Portlandia is taking notice. They’ll still crush corndogs, for the record.
