Spawned from the high mountain crags and barren dust bowls of Montana, the Ames Bros (Coby Schultz and Barry Ament) are a two man wrecking crew. Upon their mighty shoulders they carry with them scores of famous rock bands, hundreds of screen printed rock posters, snowboard companies, super bowl logos, and Rambo-esque survival tactics.
Since the day they opened their studio in 1994, the Ames Bros took off and never touched back down. Out of the gates their talents were recognized by rock greats Pearl Jam, a client they've shared many successes with, including Grammy nominations for their clever and artful packaging for Vitalogy and Yield. In the music industry, it’s common knowledge that Ames Bros helped turn the lifeless cd package into the unique collectible that it’s predecessor, the record jacket, was. Their most notable contribution to the Rock world however, is via their screen printed Rock posters (check out their 10 page spread in the new “Art of Modern Rock”). They’ve designed hundreds’s of original screen printed posters, as well as CD packaging, and, of course, T-shirts for the likes of Neil Young, Radiohead, Coldplay, Sting, Phish, John Mayer, Snoop Dog, Foo Fighters, The Strokes, The Hives, along with dozens of Indie Rock bands. Hell, Frank Kozik, the most renowned poster artist has dubbed the Ames Bros as “the best poster artists in the business.”
