Duct Tape & Glitter design studio opens

WICHITA — All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes it’s duct tape.

Broadcast designer Justin McClure, who owns JustinMcClure.tv, has created Duct Tape & Glitter, a new graphic design and illustration studio.

The name is a “fun play on us being able to be reliable and multipurpose but pretty also,” says Dominic Flask, one of three people who will be running the studio.

McClure owns the studio, which is located at his Delano office at 575 W. Douglas, but Flask says he, Luke Bott and Roger Strunk will operate Duct Tape & Glitter.

“We’re our own thing, but because Justin has clients that want more than motion and graphic work, we’re also able to offer that for him,” Flask says.

Duct Tape & Glitter will have its own clients as well.

Flask says the studio will offer branding, illustration, print, interactive, packaging and mobile design.

“We can handle about anything,” he says. “We like to bring a collaborative approach.”

Flask, who has been working with McClure on and off for about six years, also teaches part time at Wichita State University.

Bott most recently worked as an art director at Gardner Design.

Strunk, a recent WSU graduate, has had work appear in Popular Mechanics in the last few weeks.

The magazine found Duct Tape & Glitter as the company geared up to launch its website today.

Even though the studio only officially kicked off, Flask says, “Work kind of seems to find us.”
