rnI just finished up a four-page piece for S3 Magazine. This gully SC400 just screamed heavy metal to me, so I went for a darker approach. Within the article, Wooley mentions how people are afraid of it, and seeing it drive down the street is like seeing the shadows of death… so “Creeping Death” seemed all-too-fitting for the title. The second two pages are not actually a double-truck, they are separated by full-page ads. I’m still on the fence about the overall layout. I like it, but I don’t love it. I guess time-crunches can do that sometimes. rnRegardless, it was definitely a fun bit to put together!
I lended a creative helping-hand to Lieze, and did up a poster design for her art show next week. She and I have both been up to our necks in this project. It’s scale is huge, and she still has a million things to complete before the show… but I figured I could take care of the poster, and leave her with one less thing on her plate.The premise of the show is how advertising uses imagery and photographs that relate to our personal lives to appeal to us on a subconscious level. It will be using an array of 35mm slides projected using vintage slide projectors, with a motion graphic advertisements projected on top of the slide projections, using digital projectors. The projections are to be cast on a giant box constructed of plywood, shipping palettes, and analog VHS cassette tapes. She has sourced an insane amount of vintage technology to make all of this work.If you’re in or around Atlanta on March 10th… come on out!
Finished up the pre-packaged sticker packs for Slide Style™! The clean and simple design is in-line with the 2010 rebranding, and I am very pleased how they turned out. Sticker Packs consist of 7 stickers (one of each), while the Killer Pack™ is stuffed with 35 of the same variety (five of each). The backs of the card have a funny message… but you’ll have to cop some to see.Available now in the Slide Style™ Online Store.
I always preach to clients that less is more. Nobody ever listens to me (why would I know what I’m talking about, right?), so I figured what better venue to exercise this philosophy than with my own work. For 2010, I am simplifying the overall identity for Slide Style™. I don’t think it will open any client’s eyes to the ‘less is more’ idealogy, but at least it will give me a chance to push the direction for myself.
