Formed in 2016, Cream Co is Luke Dorny's Independent Analog Design Unit yet it is both an analog and digital design shop for industrial, retail, convention and event design, web design, technical sketches, proposals, charitable work, as well as custom design services and art commissions.
Cream Co serves as the creative outlet of Luke Dorny, actively building, creating, designing, and developing various artistic pursuits. Art, woodwork, and leatherwork are his physical creative outlets.
But why “Cream”?
In the ‘90s Luke started snowboarding and surfing. Carving a fresh mountain of powder with a snowboard was similar to spreading butter on bread. Butter was an apt name for applying design to the world and became the name of his first design agency. After an interim, a new entity was needed for design. The name Cream arose as the clear winner and seemed like a related and fitting approach, and describes the satisfaction in creating and designing the things that make life enjoyable.
So Cream Co it is.
Experience & History
Luke has recently been using alcohol-based graphic markers, but grew up with experience using rubylith, photolettering, and Letraset in the dark room for layouts, and sufficient amounts of plastisol for screen printing, and other paints over the years. Computer aided drafting and electro-mechanical engineering sharpened his eye. Soon Apple’s System 1.0 cleared a stronger path to digital design with FatBits. These earlier various analog and digital mediums, along with his love for art, arcades, skateboarding and surfing, continually inform his design and graphical style.
Through leatherwork and woodwork, he has expanded his use of physical materials and has included copper, walnut, cedar, wool, leather, porcelain, and stainless steel.
His latest work utilizes acrylic paints, varnishes, textures, and finishes for each project for an often unique result.
