Cyberoptix is a Detroit-based studio that designs and produces a line of witty screenprinted men’s ties with prints ranging from the Detroit Water Towers [above] to the Coney Island Parachute Jump [below].
Cyberoptix founder Bethany Shorb is yet another talented Cranbrook classmate who’s paving her own creative path. She trained as a sculptor and, among other things, has designed costumes for Skinny Puppy, and also performs as toybreaker and half of dethlab. A multi-faceted talent, that one is.
Other alums whose work I’ve featured here before include Peter Stathis [product design], Scott Santoro [graphic design], Jodi Boatman [photography], Arjen Noordeman [type design], and Andy Detskas [painting]. Well, and also the architect Gyo Obata, but I was pretty critical of his latest project, so maybe that doesn’t count.
