Paintkillers tattoo club (PTC) was formally started in 2011 and received it’s official status in 2014. Now the tattoo club consolidates 2 studios in the historical centre of Saint Petersburg with a plan to grow further. It is a place where the people with the same interests meet and may get new experience and knowledge about tattoo art. It’s a place you could make new friends and share stories and methods.
The design approach was to present PTC like a club for real men, who rated tattoo art very high. The brand image is courageous, strong and powered with inks. Old typography style is used in the design of the logo to communicate the idea of the club, the logo is complemented with a monogram, symbol of the people union. Black colour, textured paper with laser engraving, sharp needles and ink stains is all about Paintkillers Tattoo Club. The website style captures the atmosphere of a real tattoo studio with, black-and-white high contrast photos creating the image for tattoo lovers. You may explore all tattoos or watch them sort by artists. Profiles of artists allow you to understand which of them is better for you personally.

MAY IS REALITY
Last month was all about risk — and the circumstances and perspectives that exist in order for us to take one. This month, we’re delving deeper into those circumstances and defining our realities. Reality, on the surface, feels so tangible; so concrete. But (to, perhaps cheaply, use a turn of phrase), in reality, it isn’t quite so simple. Our existence is made of several truths, always shifting under our feet.
The theme was chosen by our Belo Horizonte chapter, illustrated by Craig Ward, and presented in partnership with Shutterstock. This month, 141 cities are tackling the elusiveness of reality (or maybe just giving us a good, old-fashioned reality check) at breakfast events with speakers including:
- Melizarani T.Selva, a spoken word poet, and storyteller curious in cultural taboos and identity (Kuala Lumpur, their first event!)
- Dr. Susan Cernyak-Spatz, a Holocaust survivor of Birkenau, a woman’s camp in Auschwitz (Charlotte)
- Angad Bhalla, an interactive storyteller who uses film to call attention to voices we rarely hear (New York City)
- Shachi Kurl, a public policy analyst working to encourage a better understanding of how trends and issues affect our lives (Vancouver)
Find an event near you!
Chapters continue adding events on this page throughout the month, so we recommend you sign up for your city’s local newsletter or follow them on Twitter for event updates and ticket announcements. And be sure to follow the conversation on Twitter and Instagram with #CMreality and @creativemorning!

Soon is a Belgian studio that creates visual identities in combination with photography. Most of their work is hand crafted and afterwards transformed into a digital image.
Below they have created 3D printed infographics for the annual report of Ablynx. The studio shares the same sentiment as Pablo Picasso, “it begins with an idea, and then it becomes something else” and we love what this has become.
