GLO Productions presents GLO in tha Dark!

So, I love this design. I really really love it. Haha! I rarely create everything for a design, and this time I did. I created the blacklight-esque illustration on the front and then picked up the coloration throughout the entire piece. I definitely struggled with it, as I’m no illustrator.  Originally I had tried to commission an art student to assist me with this design. We got through the initial brainstorming process and then she asked what the event was. I told her flat out… it’s a rave. I then explained to her that doing design for raves has been my entire freelance business for the past 3 years and that is has given me a lot of great opportunities as far as getting my work out there, doing what I love, making $$$ (hehe), etc. Apparently exposure and money weren’t enough for her! Crazy, huh? If I have learned NOTHING ELSE since I have graduated college it has been this… If you are going to picky in the world of Graphic Design… you’re going to be jobless. /rant. Anyhow, when she left me high and dry was when I figured I’d be fine on my own. 🙂

So this is a very trance/hardcore heavy party, which is awesome. I haven’t been to a trance party in a while (I’ll pass on the hardcore though, thank you very much). Tom Colontonio headlines this event, as well as No Left Turn and Ian K. Supporting djs are Tika (one of my very close friends), Doverspike, Eric Bliss, Omen, Eryn Evans, Joltz, Sean 2:16, Kevin King, Dougie & Sam, Fatt Kid, Skootz, Agent Smith & Zone, and Justin Beavers (not to be confused with Justin Bieber… however that would be quite awesome if Justin Bieber showed up at a rave.)

Anyhow, you can read more about the event at Lolli.org. It will definitely be a partAY you don’t want to miss! 🙂

412 Approved presents Show Me Love

show_me_love_pittsburgh_sara_ruth_lolli_org

412 Approved presents Show Me Love, October 9th, 2009 in Pittsburgh, PA at the Elks Lodge in Braddock. This was a totally fun flyer to design. Not only because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween and anything to do with it, but I got to do another collaboration piece. This time it was with the one and only Laurel Munshower. She is an incredible illustrator. Anyhow, this piece was a half page, color both sides, done in a quantity of 2000.

Event Design • early ’08 – mid ’09

I apologize that all these are just thumbnails. When I get really spunky I plan on doing actual write ups for all of them, but when I put up the blog I was being lazy. Now half a year or so later I’m thinking that wasn’t the best idea. Anyways, here are earlier things I did… still not all the archived stuff but a good bit. Thanks guys!
