This Mother's day weekend was spent in beautiful Napa Valley at the inaugural BottleRock Festival where 60+ bands including The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Zac Brown Band, Alabama Shakes, The Shins and so many more rocked my face off. On top of the great music was an excellent assortment of fine Napa culinary treasures, Tons of wineries representing "Napa Valley's Best," A hit list of top comedians spitting their best lines, and plenty of Beer.
I've never been a "music– festival" going type person but I could't miss this one, especially after having the fortunate opportunity to be involved in BottleRock since it's concepting phase. It was September of 2012 when I sent initial logo comps to my good friends at Plumbline for critique, and they were definitely "works in progress." We came a long way developing the logo and several illustrations used to brand the entire event.
Dom Moreci and the team over at Plumbline had all the hard work implementing all the design collateral, but as you can imagine, it was extremely rewarding to see my illustrations and logo on EVERYTHING from wine bottles to stages. BRNV by far has been one of the biggest events I've been a part of. I was glad to share creative prowess with such a talented group of designers and will look forward to being a part of next years BottleRock endeavors.
I'm working with Plumbline once again on this years Craft Spirits Carnival poster. I'm excited to see this developing into a series of posters. The challenge will be to see how many bottle shapes we can create.
None can comprehend the horrific tragedy that took place December 14th, but rest assured the prayers and thoughts of a nation are with you. This simple poster is a token of remembrance for the children and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, CT. Our prayers be with you. You are not alone. God Bless Sandy Hook.
Nothing says "I Care" like receiving a hand-drawn, hand-printed, hand-trimmed, hand-folded, hand-stuffed Christmas card. Printed in collaboration with the talented Kyle Marks (a.k.a. Mc Screeny or The Screen Surgeon), these Christmas cards are a limited run of 50 so if your a client, friend or family member you should feel pretty darn loved to receive one. You can see more images in my portfolio.
I'm pleased to announce that 7 of my logos have made the cut into I Heart Logos: Season 3! It's always nice to be recognized by your peers as doing quality work. I'm very blessed and feel honored to be apart of such a great design community. Thanks for voting!
