It’s a Wrap

New 101X logo, new vehicle wrap!

This took a lot of back and forth with the PDs upstairs, but we finally came to something everyone liked. …And then it got changed again (the large logo on the back wasn’t my idea; I had something a little less in-your-face in mind, but I understood why they wanted it that way).

The first wrap came in a little… salmon. This is still pretty light, but the PDs were fine with it.

I’ve already seen it out at concerts around Austin! Pretty nifty.

Blues On The Green: Week 2

This past Wednesday was the second Blues on the Green of the 2014 season. I got to create 100% of the print and web design for this 24-year-old Austin event!

I was super stoked to be working with Industry Print, a kick-ass screen printing studio here in town. They brought in one of their mobile-carousel-shirt-four-screen-printers, along with a large heat-pad to dry the ink quickly, and printed my designs (!!!) onto shirts for people to purchase. They should be at the rest of this season’s shows.

Ken Taylor: Mondo Show

I was lucky enough to get ot a press pass to this week’s opening of Ken Taylor’s exclusive Mondo show. Pretty exciting stuff, considering Ken Taylor is my very favorite screen printing artist, other than FurTurtle.

While I am more familiar with Ken’s work in the gig poster space (first encountering him at Flatstock 2013), this show was all movies. Little Shop of Horrors was the show poster (see right), but there was Predator, Nosferatu, Fight Club, Frankenstein, Children of Men (which I bought for a friend) and more, most all “cult classics.”

Ken was there in person, which was really great considering he’s from Melbourne, Australia. I spoke with him, and after a bit asked after a poster of his that I have not been able to find on the internet (and regret not buying at his Flatstock booth in 2013 with my other purchase). He told me to speak with his assistant, and I finally got the hookup after a year of pining; it’s now hanging on my wall. Thanks, Ken!

New 101X Logo

We officially unveiled the new 101X logo (that I created) at SXSW this year, but it’s still becoming “real” for me!

Here are Jason and Deb (from the morning show of the same name) just looking absolutely THRILLED to be holding the giant foam-core version.

You can check out the logo in my portfolio here. I’ll be writing up a longer post soon about the process behind rebranding this 19-year-old Austin radio station. Really cool project to have worked on.
