Sunset til Sunrise presents Disco InFoamo 2

The event will feature KJ Sawka, Larry Tee and a variety of regional and local talents.

Legions of Dance presents “Meltdowns: Party in My Pants”


This is the flyer I did for Legions of Dance’s “Meltdowns: Party in My Pants” event. The event was Friday, April 1, 2011 at the Elks Lodge in Braddock (suburb of Pittsburgh), PA. The event featured Gobs the Zombie as well as various local talents. You’ll notice a blurred out portion of the flyer. Unfortunately after the flyer was printed there was a change to the lineup.

Although simple, I had a lot of fun with this flyer.

Plur.Fm Website Graphics

This is actually a project I did at the end of 2010, but I have been quite delinquent in updating my blog (oops!). The owner of the soon-to-be plur.fm approached me to do some graphics for her new website, plur.fm which to put it simply…

“Pittsburgh Local Underground Radio showcases Pittsburgh’s rave scene DJs and music producers with a 24/7/365 radio station and scheduled live sets. PLUR.fm can be listened to on many devices. For specific instructions please check out our Listen page

If you’re a DJ or electronic music producer who plays music at raves in pittsburgh and would like your music on this station, please feel free to email us at info@plur.fm.”

For this project I created the logo, buttons (white text that rolls over to a colored gradient), as well as the footer. Although pretty different from what I usually do, the owner of plur.fm seemed pretty happy with the outcome and the website has been a success so far!

1337, Opus One and Sunset til Sunrise Present “Wanna See Something Sweet?”

This is the flyer I did for the 1337, Opus One and Sunset til Sunrise party “Wanna See Something Sweet?” happening on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at Mr. Small’s Funhouse in Millvale (suburb of Pittsburgh), PA. The night features Japanese DMC turntablist Kentaro, San Francisco’s The Genie, as well as local talent Doverspike and Sunset til Sunrise.

This was a fun flyer to do. When I got the project, the name of the party and the the bar codes… I instantly wanted to do a meme flyer. Most of the memes are from the past few years, however as you’ll notice, some hail from the late and early 90’s. I believe there are at least 50 memes on the flyer… including “Hide You Kids, Hide You Wife”, “Backtraced It”, “Dancing Baby”, “LOL WUT”, “O RLY?”, “Hipster Little Mermaid”, “Epic Fail”, “I Can Haz Cheezburger”, “Turrets Guy”, “All Your Base are Belong to Us”, “Vuvuzella”, “Chocolate Rain”, “Deal with It”, “Homestar Runner”, and many more!

More info on the event can always be found at lolli.org.

Sisters of Sinister & Sunset til Sunrise present Freeze This 3

Excuse the sizing on this one (and the fact that I’m typing in blue)… I’m a little format challenged this evening. Anyhow, this is the flyer I put together for Sister of Sinister & Sunset til Sunrise’s event Freeze This 3. I’m a bit late getting it posted (the holidays were quite hectic as was the 9-5 job). Anyways, this was a fun one to do. I ended up referencing some mid 90’s design and a style much different than anything I’ve done recently. I think it turned out A-OK. For reviews and pics of the event visit lolli.org. Welp, that’s about all I have to say about that one! I know I have been MIA for the past few months but expect to see posts more frequently going into 2011. Thanks!! Happy New Year!

412 Approved Presents Show Me Love 2

This is the flyer I did for 412 Approved’s Show Me Love 2. (Last year I had the chance to do the design for Show Me Love… found here.) I wanted to model this year’s design similar to last year’s. Of course I wanted to work with the fabulous Laurel Munshower again. We decided to do a witch concocting some love spells and potions and go with a deep red, black, and purple theme. I think it turned out pretty well.

Headlining the event are Vize and Mayhem. Supporting djs are Peterlee, Tika, Ryan Matthew, Ben Matrix, Sean Kramer, Bob Teagarden, Xero, RM, and Funkreformer.

The event takes place on October 16, 2010 at the Braddock Elk’s Lodge, Braddock, PA.

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! 🙂
