Fun With Robots Design Co. Designs stuff. Visually. Inspirationally. Hacky.
I like to design cool stuff with people and for people I care about.
Brian Manley is the sole proprietor of Fun With Robots, a design venture that began in 2006 as a therapeutic outlet to counter act the daily grind of a 9 to 5 job. Quickly this quest for a playful diversion and to toy with the chemistry of analog photography became his career. His self-taught style has been imprinted in the identity and illustrations of various clients, including non-profits (North Point Community Church, Passion City Church, and Passion Conference), celebrity chefs (Kevin Gillespie) and album art (Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, Manchester Orchestra, Hugh Laurie, and All Time Low).
Brian lives in Atlanta (technically it's the City of Decatur) with his wife, daughter and office security system dog.

Abstract Expressionist Documentaries For some reason lately all that I want to watch are documentaries about abstract expressionists (Basquiat, Rothko, etc)
