This is the most recent flyer I did for Blasted Heath to promote their EP release show. It was created in Adobe Illustrator and given an old worn out feel using Photoshop.

I created this flyer in Adobe Illustrator for a music event to support Chicago Public Schools. It helped foster an awareness of the severe budget cuts our schools are faced with, while showcasing local talent.

Here is a logo I created to better promote a sporting club. I illustrated the character and set the type in such a way as to give the feel of action and no-nonsense. I feel it exemplifies their commitment to safety first in training and during events.

The following four pieces are examples of band posters I have done. Being a musician myself, it’s no wonder that designing flyers for local bands would be among my favorite gigs. Not only do I get the freedom to explore different techniques and styles, I get to help promote other artists in Chicago’s indie music scene.

This flyer really got the event started on the right foot. I wanted to create a sense of unpretentious, unapologetic fun. I used a bold and simplistic mid-century graphic style in hopes it would help get people on the dance floor.
