It’s pretty safe to say that Sarah Petroski works out more than your average New Yorker. Maybe you think you’re in shape because you bike to work everyday or have a pull-up bar in your apartment. The kind of shape that Sarah’s in requires her to not only be at the gym every day but to dedicate her life to fitness. Unlike other girls, her role models growing up were strong female athletes like Gabrielle Reece. Beyond just working out, Sarah teaches group fitness classes, does personal training, and is a fitness model. With all of that on her plate, it’s no surprise that the longest she’s ever gone without working out is one single day.
If you're a young punk rock fan, you would probably give an arm and a leg to have been able to see the bands that Mike Joyce has seen. If you also happen to be perusing Mike's project "Swissted," you might have a heart attack when you see in plain text that all of your favorite punk bands have played shows together. Thus is the beauty of Mike Joyce's passion project; a re-imagining of old punk show flyers in the Swiss Modernist style. As Mike explains, though it's clearly not the grungy, anarchic style typically associated with punk rock, the Swiss modernist style complements punk rock in its similar rejection of extraneous frills and self-indulgence. "Swissted" takes the ragged collage show flyers and reduces them down to the line-up, the date, and the venue with a few simple design elements, allowing the audience to geek out on who played together and where.
