This Spring has brought a cool string of collaborative work with Cataldo. The new Cataldo album comes out in a few months and it's spectacular. Eric Anderson is the man behind the band, writing heartfelt songs and consistently cranking out wonderful music. The new record is heavily steeped in Eric's (and our collective) early 20s, so most of what we've come up with represents that. Look for t-shirts, posters and videos in the next couple months.
Another great human in Seattle is out on tour supporting a new record--Telekinesis aka Michael Lerner. Michael and I share the same affinity for mid-century design so I wanted to come up with one pin design that represented that. The color scheme of the hyphen sign pin was inspired by some 1960s Disneyland advertising. The glasses are little replicas of the ones he wears himself.
Hey I made it onto TV! This month I was featured on Seattle Refined, weekday show on channel 4 KOMO. The show highlighted Porchlight as well as all the enamel pins that I've designed for businesses, bands and other organizations. The show also had me design and deliver pins specifically for the show. You can still see the whole episode and read about it here.
To celebrate the fact that Porchlight has been up and running for a decade, I've been designing material to remind folks all year long: window decals, posters, quotes from customers etc. Here are a few examples so far.
Lastly, here are some of my favorite photos from the month.
