A big June highlight is the release of Mid Seattle Volume Three. For each issue, I include an enamel pin and postcard in the orange/red/white color scheme of the Mid Seattle logo. I made a quick promo video to show the pin and interior pages of the new volume, and recorded a super brief instrumental soundtrack to go with it.
In June, Cone & Steiner asked if I would have a little Porchlight Design Co. pop up at their Pioneer Square location. I designed the poster and organized a Happy Hour and Mariner game outing to go with it as well.
Whenever I get to make stuff for Cataldo, it's a good time. Eric asked me to help with their lyric video for "They Don't Know About Us". The lyrics and illustrations were meant to look like a high schooler's sketches, done in scratchy ballpoint. I also lettered the video's titles and credits. KEXP premiered the video right here.
As an exclusive for the Porchlight Design Co. pop up at Cone & Steiner, I designed a Dave Niehaus/Mariners-inspired "My Oh My" enamel pin. The shop is in super close proximity to the ballpark, and a lot of attendees stop in C&S before games, so it seemed like a good fit.
I also designed new labels for the candles I make for Porchlight Design Co. Over the years I've had a couple different label designs for these, and this brand new one is sure to stick as my favorite.
The final June design was for the Spanish Ballroom in Tacoma. The poster will be used for a monthly DJ night featuring Sub Pop founder, Bruce Pavitt. Umbrellas are probably overused in Northwest-based designs, but when it's raining records, I think it's okay.
Last, but not least, my favorite photos from the month:
