Ames Bros® is the expanding vision of designers/illustrators/business partners Barry Ament and Coby Schultz. Natives of the Great Northwest, Ament and Schultz grew up in Montana, where they met in college.
After surviving art school, they moved west to Seattle. It was there, in 1994, that they started Ames Bros, a graphic design and illustration company. The ideals the pair shared then are the same ideals that drive them today. Concept, execution, style, and evolution, all working together to create a timeless product. Through their 25+ year history, their vast body of work ranges from custom posters and album covers for rock giants like Pearl Jam and Metallica; to logos for superstar athletes like LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Add to that, advertising illustrations and product design for classics like MTV, Converse, Absolut Vodka, Ray-Ban and Cooper Mini. All of the exposure, accolades, and awards they have received have come directly and organically through their unique and inspired creations. Fueled by the passion to create, they built Ames Bros Clothing. For over a decade they have dedicated their talents to creating the best t-shirt out there. You’ll find Ames Bros loyalists everywhere, owning a shirt for every day of the week. The clever and humorous designs constantly pull from pop culture, adding elements of nature, music, and history to create random, yet dead-on scenarios that ultimately become classics in any collection.
It’s been a business doing pleasure. With a simple criteria for taking on new projects… good work for good people, Ames Bros are currently in the throes of extensive campaigns for local companies Boeing, Pagliacci Pizza and The Washington Health Benefit Exchange. Good work for good people.
We take great pride in our success, which has always been in connecting companies and their products to their audience, nurturing and growing that connection through an innovative design approach and painstaking attention to detail.
Looking forward to the next 25 years.
