Special thanks to AIGA Minnesota as well as the design judges, Bobby C. Martin, Sarah Labieniec, Bonnie Siegler and Michael Shea.

New Work: Nada Surf gig poster

I recently designed a gig poster for Nada Surf for their show with An Horse at First Ave. The design was inspired by their latest album, The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy and is available for purchase at the link above. The poster is an 18 x 24 , four color screen print on heavyweight dark blue stock (French Construction Nightshift Blue) and was expertly printed by The Half and Half. Special thanks to the band for the opportunity to work with them on this project. I will post a few detail shots very soon.

New Work: The Rural Alberta Advantage

I was fortunate enough to work with the band The Rural Alberta Advantage on another gig poster for their September 24th show at First Ave. The band always put on a great show and Nils, Paul and Amy are three of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet. It’s always fun to work with them. This print is a three color screen print (black, light gray and yellow) on heavyweight dark blue stock (French Construction Steel Blue) and was inspired by their song “Tornado ’87”. You can purchase a print at the link above. Be sure to check out both of their LPs: Hometowns and The Departing.

Rabbit Children in Graphic Exchange!

I received an email out the blue recently from Fabien Barral that both Rabbit Children packages had been featured on the Graphic Exchange. GE is my all-time favorite design blog and the work they feature is incredibly good. To have my work featured on the site is a huge honor, to say the least. If you aren’t familiar with Graphic Exchange make sure to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

New Work: Rabbit Children EP Featured on FPO and Lovely Package

Recently I had the opportunity to work with the band Rabbit Children again, this time on their new EP, Cemetery Friends. The 5 song EP is the follow-up from their debut album, Thou Shalt Have a Time Machine, has a darker, more rockin’ sound than its predecessor. The result is a limited edition letterpress printed sleeve with a custom illustrated four page insert and screen printed CD. I was very fortunate to have this project featured both on FPO:For Print Only and Lovely Package a couple weeks ago. Needless to say, it was quite an honor to be featured on both blogs. You can check out the full project on those sites as well as here. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the EP, you can find a link on the band’s Facebook page or you can order it via paypal here. Their debut album CD is also now (finally) available online and is available through Facebook or can be purchased here via paypal.
