Tim & Aurelia Sanders
In 2013 a mom and pop team began a poster project. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. People began to take notice of their work, so the couple founded a studio and dubbed it Charley Chartwell.
Today Timothy and Aurélia are working hard to help people enjoy more mirth. The process of each poster begins with a mix of ideas and sketches, which are gradually refined through research, experimentation, and occasional hair pulling. Timothy employs his background as an art director and playwright, and Aurélia keeps their projects well edited and on track. At the end of the week, it’s a great pleasure for both of them when they see a passerby stop at one of their posters, lean in close, and start to laugh.
