The Thompson Hotel hosts some delicious themed dinners and this month paired the deliciousness with vinyl. The evening included a set from Jay-Z DJ Neil Armstrong, great food and these pins that I designed.
One of the most challenging things with event posters is fitting A LOT of information onto an eye-catching illustration. This poster for Sasquatch Festival's photo event was very, very wordy but worked out alright--plus I will never complain about drawing a sasquatch.
Artists For Progress is a small organization that brings artists together to collectively support causes--in this case, Planned Parenthood and ACLU. My piece for the show is a stack of books with spines that tell an Albert Camus quote from 1955 in which he discusses the freedom of the press. The print is limited to 5 and only one remains in my webstore.
At Porchlight, we have a sign mounted high on a shelf that I made from an old X-Ray display. The sign's face is interchangeable with multiple designs, so each season I try to come up with a new one. I didn't want the sign's design to be too ephemeral, so I turned elements of it into a greeting card to stretch its use.
Customers at Porchlight regularly tell us "Your punch card is the only one I actually keep track of." Since people hang on to these and fill 'em up to get free drinks, it's important that they look nice. I decided it was time for a redesign. Most of our branding is black and white, which is partially due to my love of simplicity and minimalism, but also because of how cost-effective one-color designs are.
Lastly, I took a bunch of photos all over Michigan, including a really wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the Herman Miller archives, and the Eames-designed DePree House. All my photos are available here.
