Pen & Pixel Graphics was a graphic design firm launched in 1992 by brothers Shawn and Aaron Brauch. They specialized in album covers, particularly for southern gangsta rap artists, and were the house design firm for many years for Birdman’s Cash Money Records, Master P’s No Limit Records, and Suave House Records. Their design for Snoop Dogg’s 1998 album Da Game Is to be Sold, Not to Be Told is a classic example of their outrageous 'Bling' design aesthetic.
