Founded by: Tuesday Bassen
Tuesday Bassen is an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator living in Los Angeles. Her clients include Google, The New Yorker, The City of Los Angeles, Snapchat, NY Times, Lucky Peach, Playboy, United Nations, Nike, Adidas, and more.
Bassen loves creating in LA, stating in an interview with The Great Discontent in 2016 that “I lived in New York for four years and tried a lot of different avenues for illustration. During that time, I visited Los Angeles and decided that LA offered the lifestyle experience I was looking for, so I left New York and moved to the West Coast.”
LA helped Bassen establish her eponymous product line, Tuesday Bassen. “Once I got to LA, I pursued more product work versus editorial illustration, which held my focus before. The first large product order I did was for Urban Outfitters. In late 2014, I made 300 planters by hand for their website, which taught me a lot about what I do and don’t want to do. Instead of creating every single item, I focus on design now”, Bassen recalls in the same interview with The Great Diocontent in 2016.
Today, Bassen has a storefront location in silverlake and a bustling online store.
