The Crew
Good design happens in threes fives.

Paul Fucik

OWNER/DESIGNER

Paul is a self made designer and entrepreneur. He founded Arts and Recreation in 2010 following his successful stint as a partner at The Decoder Ring. He brings a journeyman’s straight talk and a designer’s boundless curiosity to every project. He sets a high standard for creative work, and demands that it create real impact for his clients. He’s just as passionate about building a team of equally driven designers.

In the off hours, you’ll find Paul outside — surfing, skating, riding dirtbikes or fixing something for his kids.

Clint Breslin

DESIGNEr

Clint started his design career by going west—taking his design degree to one of the leading motocross brands in Cali-fornia. It was only natural for someone who attempted his first dirt bike jump at age six (into an empty swimming pool no less…). When he came back to Texas, he found Art and Recreation the ideal place to put the same passion into design that he did into those early rides. He always goes the extra mile to make every project he touches the best it can be.

When he’s not burning the midnight oil in the studio you’ll find him burning up his personal MX track or on his tractor building the perfect jump.

Corey Carbo

DESIGNER

Corey is a Louisiana-native and Texas-transplant, her best days are spent creating magnetic and relatable designs. Since landing in Austin in 2011, she’s worked with large global brands, hometown heroes, local non-profits, and solopreneurs chasing their lifelong dreams. Her experience runs the gamut and brings a wide range of skills that keeps A+R on their feet! 

It just so happens that Corey’s rec is her art, when she is not “doing research” at the nearest pool, she is lounging in her studio dreaming about her next project or finding her zen in a juicy yoga session about town.

MATTHEW HECKMANN

productiOn manager

Matthew discovered a love for printmaking in high school art class when he cut his first linoleum block. Little did he know that his passion for putting ink on stuff could become a career. After culinary school and years of working in kitchens, he began a new life as an offset pressman in a commercial print shop. He later diversified his craft before becoming a print production manager. If you need something with your brand on it, Matthew knows how to get it made.

A natural dabbler, you can find him obsessing over a new board game, getting his hands dirty in the backyard vegetable garden, hauling his toddler on a hike, biking to the farmer’s market, or geeking out over NBA stats.

Adam Dodson

DESIGNER

Adam brings a new school approach that balances some of our old school ways. He likes to consider all the moving parts of a project and use his music background to influence his design decisions.

You’ll find Adam writing and recording songs on his guitar, or playing shows with his band Zealand the North. Ask him about guitar pedals or listen @adam.dodson
