This is a concert poster and promotional campaign for concert presenter The Witching Hours. I used gradients and a contrasting color pallet to create a visual where different bands of different genres could live on one platform. I used a square format for bands to be able to promote the event on the digital platform Instagram. I also created a poster that would be used for print.
Andrew St. James
Andrew St. James is a talented Indie musician from San Francisco, California whom I've had the pleasure of working with. For his album The "Big Ol Veronica Apology Record," I wanted to evoke his vibrant sound through my color usage and the sense of a false apology through my image and its treatment. I used flowers as a homage to the classic apology tactic, but warped them to show deception (because the album is a satire).
Aldae Long is an R&B musician based out of Los Angeles, California. I have been working with him over the past couple years on various projects including album covers and social media advertising. From gaining more of an understanding on his style of music, I use a color system of blue with high contrast for most of his visuals to create an identity system for the artist.
This is a design piece I made for the electronic musician Nicolas Jaar. This was a passion project I did after watching one of his concerts. I was so inspired by one of the songs he played and the staging of the concert that I wanted to recreate my experience through designing a series. I wanted to replicate the tone of the music, with the general feelings from the environment Jaar created.
Full Time Femmes
Poster design for the event "Full Time Femmes" put on by KXLU and Superdelux. Because this event embraces female artists, I wanted to use an image of an all female band. This poster was used for print to post around Los Angeles to promote the event.
Play Pat is a rap artist from Boulder, Colorado. He commissioned me to create an animation that could live on instagram to promote his new single "Stressin." He gave me full artistic freedom with what I was to draw, so I thought of the most stress-free environment possible: smoking in a convertible with your homies.
Created a type based advertising campaign for James Blake's new album The Colour in Anything. I wanted to mimic his ambient sound through my type treatment.
Utilizing an element of neon that is synonymous with Los Angeles's China Town, I created an event that caters to the unique craft and will be able to help the surrounding businessess. Night Light is a neon artist workshop who's focus is to aid businesses that will be affected by the recent College Station gentrification project. I have created an event that will increase tourism to the area, which will inevitably increase business flow. The concept is that two neon signs created by LA artists will be unveiled at the event.
