"One of the nice things about working with these people is they're fun," publisher Carol Doumani confides, parking her bright orange Gucci purse on the sofa in the sunny conference room at AdamsMorioka. "They seem to be really happy about what they do." She has come to the Beverly Hills office of the quintessential Southern California graphic design team--other clients include the Gap, Old Navy, Disney, VH-1 and Rizzoli--to look at proofs for her new cookbook.

FROM the sidewalk, the old Spanish Revival house looks like so many others in Los Angeles: cream-colored stucco, faded red-tile roof, wrought-iron railings. But step past towering euphorbia, through the front door and into the living room, and unexpected colors shoot out as if blasted by an artist wielding a paint-ball gun. Underneath heavy wood beams are walls drenched in spearmint blue and butter yellow. A niche in the wall is painted pink. A red sun pillow rests on an orange Womb chair.

If Michael Strassburger ever gets tired of graphic design, he'll probably have a bright career in comedy. Co-founder, with Robynne Raye, of a boisterous, irreverent Seattle firm called Modern Dog, he reduced a young audience at Chapman University in Orange at last week to screaming fits of laughter with remarks that are, unfortunately, mostly unprintable.

Friday night's game between Villa Park and Trabuco Hills, a stirring 15-14 upset victory by Villa Park at El Modena High, hinged on the performances of two exceptional receivers. The Spartans rode the speed and long reach of wideout Sean Adams, who hauled in seven of Sean McMahon's 12 pass completions for 98 yards to rein in the fourth-ranked Mustangs. The biggest play was a 12-yard touchdown catch with 1 minute 57 seconds to play in the game.

Villa Park's Grant Pearsall led a potent ground game that ran over El Modena to score a 30-9 Century League victory Friday night at El Modena. Pearsall rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns in 31 carries and added 42 return yards. Pearsall's effort led a Spartan ground game that amassed 19 first downs and 254 yards rushing. The victory gave Villa Park (5-3, 2-1 in league) an inside track for a postseason playoff spot.

A man was charged Thursday with bludgeoning or strangling six relatives whose bodies were found wrapped in sheets and blankets in the basement of his grandmother's home. Authorities said Jesse Dee Wise, 21, confessed, but they would not comment on a motive. The victims spanned three generations of the same family; the youngest was 5 years old. Three of the victims were hit in the head with a blunt metal object, and three others were strangled, police said in an affidavit.

Villa Park's 14-10 victory over Canyon featured a hard-hitting defense, which held the Comanches to minus-25 yards rushing, and wide receiver Sean Adams, who caught five passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Those were the on-field highlights. However, there were plenty of strange sights off the field in Thursday's Century League football game at El Modena High.

Villa Park snapped out of its offensive funk and sent Brea-Olinda into one Friday night. The Spartans scored 14 first-quarter points and held Brea to two first downs in the first half on their way to a 28-7 nonleague victory at Brea-Olinda High School. Villa Park (1-0-1), which struggled in a 0-0 tie against Valencia last week, utilized the Sean McMahon-to-Sean Adams connection to build its early lead.

NEARLY 200,000 L.A.-area residents receive works of art in the mail four times a year whether they know it or not. As evidenced in the exhibition "Masters of Graphic Design: Catalog Covers of UCLA Extension (1990-2007)," the university's quarterly course descriptions come wrapped in museum-quality handiwork by graphic designers responding to a creative brief that couldn't be much simpler: Include the name of the school and the start date for the semester.
