Graphic Design - A New Challenge

My blogging (read: lack thereof) has become kind of ridiculous. I've had several people ask for photos of my new car, which I promise are coming presently.

But, I thought I'd catch you up on some of the new things I'm doing - so over the next week, I'm going to start posting photos of some of the things I've been working on at my job - some designs and some photos, just to give you a peek at my life with Ogden.

Here are some poster ads I did for a music festival in Austin called South by Southwest (SXSW), which, funnily enough (and not remarkably so) I had never heard of. The respectful companies liked my work and one, Americana, is interested in using it as part of an email campaign, which is flattering to say the least! (click images to enlarge)

It's certainly not my favorite thing I've ever done - but, it's simple, to the point, and that seemed to be what they wanted. Besides, I spent most of my alotted time making this:


Which got a lot of love from, what I understand, is a really important company.

SXSW is awesome. It's a film and music festival in Austin. Sadly I've only been one time.

I'm board president for the Americana Music Academy in Lawrence, so when I looked at this, I thought, "Wait a minute... I don't recall any conversation about doing this flyer..." I liked the flyer, but thought our executive director had wandered away from including the board in his decision-making process -- an ongoing issue. Then I saw South by Southwest and thought ... "Are we doing something with SxSW that I don't know about?"

But now that I see it's the Americana Music Association ... how cool!

I'm also a bad blogger. But I'm trying to do better. It seems like it should only take a few minutes, but it always ends up being more involved than that ...

Nice work, Mr. Taylor.
