Sunset til Sunrise presents How Strange. I love working for Tall… the Close Encounters of the 3d Kind flyer (shown below, keep scrolling…. yep thar it is!) was one of my favorite flyers I’ve done (if you look at it with 3-d glass, YES, it’s actually 3-d.. woooOoOoOoOo!). Anyhow, Tall wanted this flyer to be a collaboration of talents, just like his party. So he got one of his favorite local artists “Valentine” to put together the graphics you see in the background of the flyer, then he handed it over to me. I did the entire layout. This is the first collab piece I’ve done since college, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with how it turned out. I’m looking forward to this event, for sure. Tall puts his heart and soul into these events, and you can tell when you get there, because they’re just incredible. This was a full page 11×8.5, 4/4, folded piece done in a quantity of 5000.
G.L.O. Productions presents Beat tha Heat: Bigger, Better, Wetter! This is Nate’s second year doing this. I did this flyer last minute… so it was only done in a quantity of 2000. Half page 8.5×5.5, 4/4. I’m still learning what all can be done with Strata 3d, its a fun program, but definitely difficult. Although I don’t base my entire designs off of it, it does add a certain level of *something* to a design. Not sure I’ve figured out what that something is yet! But everyone was requesting it about a year ago, so I figured I should keep up with the times and learn.
B.A.D. Ass. presents Venus: the Second Installment of the Planetary Parties. I’m only 2.5 into the entire series (currently working on Earth… should be posted within a few days), however this is one of the coolest projects I’ve worked on in a while. To reinforce the parties as a series, and just because I’m a nerd… I designed the flyers so when layed out in a row they literally line up and create the solar system. Here is Mercury (posted earlier in my blog), Venus, and the front of Earth.
This was designed for B.A.D. Ass. in Pittsburgh… The Second Annual Christmas in July featuring Atomic Babies and 7UP. Definitely a fun piece to work on. I usually don’t do work so cartoony… but I love the Grinch so this was a really fun piece to do. I hate stereotypical red and green for Christmas designs, so I really tried to stay away from that, and I let the graphics carry the theme more than the color scheme. This is a full page 11″x8.5″ 4/4 folded piece. It was done in a quantity of 5000.
