Andy Altmann and David Ellis are the brains of Why Not Associates,
a 15-year-old firm that has left its mark across a wide swath of projects

their varied client list, and their experimentation in a variety of media
give their work a distinct—but never predictable—look. Their mono-
graph, Why Not, was published by Booth-Clibborn Editions.
