A lot of projects have fallen under the Porchlight umbrella over the years, but one of the first was releasing a vinyl LP for Tomo Nakayama's band Grand Hallway. Porchlight Records has released three of his records over the years, with a brand new one coming out in April. To celebrate the release, we're having a show at the Sunset in Ballard and I designed the poster which is inspired by my dad's old Seattle Seafair hydroplane souvenirs.
This month brought another poster for the historic Fillmore in San Francisco for an artist that isn't quite in my regular wheelhouse. Chris Lane is a contemporary country singer, which I admittedly don't know a ton about. I took some time to watch some videos, listen to some songs and figure something out that I thought he and his fans would like, while still staying in my design-comfort-zone.
Over at Porchlight Design Co. I post photo sets from different trips around the Northwest and beyond. I recently made a quick solo trip to Boise, ID and took plenty of photos. You can find the whole set right here.
I also squeezed in a small poster for Fast Times.! and their Noise Pop happy hour in San Francisco.
I always love working with my friends at Freeman. They make so much beautiful clothing right here in Seattle and while it's rare to have US-made clothing, it's even rarer to see it made in our city. I shot some photos for some of their new menswear pieces that were just released.
And a collection of my favorite photos from the month...
