Brutal Studio | An interview
Jess Bernhart interviews Sara Santamaria and Allie Bashuk of the Atlanta-based, women-led design studio, Brutal.
Since 2015, Brutal Studio has taken on diverse projects, from parade floats to Christmas-themed bars, costumes, flower thrones, and 35 ‘deconstructed vases,’ currently featured in VOLATL’s store. Their work is playful, interactive, and always surprising. With saturated colors, recycled materials, and a catch-as-catch-can approach to making and design, Brutal is perhaps best known for their always-expanding expertise and uncanny ability to make silk purses out of sow’s ears. Hand them a pipe cleaner and a twist tie, and they’ll give you a parade. Below is our chat.
