Rhino Records print advertising done by The Bomb Factory in the early 1990’s.

The Bomb Factory was a film production company/ad agency hybrid i ran in Venice CA from 1990 to 1996. Wonderful people worked there.

We didn’t think of it as an unusual place at the time. We wanted to work a lot & we wanted to control the quality of our work. That was all. In retrospect it’s apparent we were trying to be two things at once at a time when it was becoming a difficult world to make money at in either of them.
(creatives: Steve Luker, Rob Palmer, Mark Foster, Kate Flather & Susan Griak. all art directors, but i think they wrote a lot of the best headlines themselves)

I’ll post more of the work as it gets scanned & write more later about our experience, especially the reasons we’re not around today.

Progress comes from mistakes, not success. Pretty much all that comes from success is copying.
