JUNE + JULY 2022 DESIGN RECAP
This summer was a busy one...
First, two candle label designs for Good + Well Supply Co. These are the beginning of a series of city and neighborhood candles with labels influenced by vintage travel posters. The Ballard candle shows the Ballard Locks, while the Seattle candle has Gasworks Park on a sunny day. Find 'em in-store at Good + Well's retail shop in Ballard or online!
The summer also brought some fun branding projects. Trip Kloser, a beer industry veteran, started Trip's Beer Trips and Trip's Bourbon Trips to give folks a chance to go on fun and informational booze trips around the world. My boozy branding was meant to show influence from classic Bavaria and mid-century design while appealing to contemporaries of all ages.
Next, some branding for The Almanac, a digital alt-weekly with no ads or gimmicks, launched by Alma in Tacoma! Taking a cue from classic one-color logos, this was intended to evoke art-deco radio towers and airwaves along with the flipping of book pages.
The Almanac wasn't the only work for Alma this summer, I also created the branding for their secret concert series, Off the Record. While the use of a vinyl record is a bit obvious, I added the turntable tone arm shushing to complete the branding. Keeping it in a classic one-color design, it can be implemented easily into various types of print.
This poster is one of my favorites for one of my favorite performers of the last few years—Orville Peck. If there's one thing the world needs more of, it's gay country music. These posters are four-color screen prints made here in Seattle. A few are still available via Porchlight Design Co.
Next in the land of show posters, two designs for the local folks Ivan and Alyosha!
This next poster was for a local concert series on Beacon Hill. In its second year, the Jefferson Jumpstart shows happen in a relaxed atmosphere in Jefferson Park and I wanted the design to evoke the fun, but family-friendly and culturally diverse shows happening there.
I created another pin for the fine folks at Pacific Bonsai Museum. This one is a purple wisteria pin, available via the museum's online shop and in-person at the gift shop.
I helped Yonder Cider "pin-a-fy" one of their cans. They already have a beautiful typographic logo, which the design was based around. Grab one here!
Lastly, here are some of my favorite photos from June and July!
