SF Art Department is an Art Direction consultancy founded by Something Fantastic to spread ideas worth spreading. Born out of admiration for inspiring ideas, we enjoy dealing with subjects we think are important: resilience, nature, justice, communality, a certain posture, freedom, directness, simplicity, elegance. Our role often turns out to be an ambigious one between being a designer, an author, and an editor.
