Gold foil prints for UC Berkeley

Here's a custom typographic illustration I created for UC Berkeley a couple months ago. They were foil stamped on beautiful deep blue cardstock and sent out to donors and alumni for the New Year. I just love how they turned out – nothing beats the excitement of getting a fresh stack of samples back from the client!

Our New Year's cards

I love holiday cards, but I kind of love New Year's cards even more! Receiving a card in the New Year is kind of like finding that extra french fry in the bottom of the bag: you think you're done and you're feelin' pretty satisfied, but wait—there's more!

I illustrated our family portrait and had the cards printed with Minted, using Annie Clark's foil-pressed template, Gold Rush. The design was actually intended to be a wedding thank you card, but I'm all for a little creative repurposing!

Brooklyn Bridge gold foil art prints.

I have a new limited edition art print series over at Minted! Here's the first of three: Brooklyn Bridge. Made just for those who "heart NYC" and for folks whose walls are not complete without a bit of bling. Minted has a great variety of frames to match your decor style, but of course you can purchase it sans frame too.

The Black Angels poster.

Black Angels Poster

The folks at the Free Press Summer Fest asked me to design a poster for The Black Angels, who'll be one of the Fest's headliners in June. This was such a neat project to work on. I knew I wanted to avoid any clichéd psychedelic imagery for this design, since it's almost expected and, well, just not my style.

So, I channeled the likes of Saul Bass / Noma Bar / Jason Munn and decided to represent the band via a large, modern "crest." They're tambourine-lovin' and whiskey-fueled, and singer Alex Maas always wears his signature newsboy cap... so, I ran with it.

The poster will be screen-printed with three colors, and available for sale early summer. Stay tuned!
