This project pays homage to those that have dared to explore beyond the reaches of this place we call Earth. To the extraordinary group of men and women curious and courageous enough to fly a starship across the universe divide—this one's for you.
A gig poster I created for my pals in Kooley High, a hip hop group out of Raleigh, NC. I decided to go with three primary colors, NC State Red, Duke Blue and Carolina Blue. Knowing the show would be played in Carrboro and posters would be put up throughout the Triangle, I wanted to be as diplomatic as possible. These Tobacco Road rivalries are no joke people.
Stated is a project I started with a couple of friends based on the idea of designing and printing NC State inspired apparel we actually wanted to wear. The market for collegiate merchandise is over saturated in uninspired and over priced merchandise. Stated offers the true fan an alternative to the mundane with high quality original designs at an affordable price. Aside from designing merchandise I also assist with art direction, branding and web design. The project is a constant work in progress, and has been a great experience thus far, I'm looking forward to what's to come.
Look Homeward is a folk band from North Carolina and though they have only been around for a short time, their unmistakable talent and energy has unsurprisingly brought early success. Their knack for rich story telling is apparent in every song and I wanted to evoke that same mood and imagery through the merchandise I designed. I wanted folks to feel the presence of the dense Appalachian forrest and the damp salty air of the North Carolina coast. You can check them out here.
