Made in Reno - T-shirt Poster
I got commisioned by Reno Tahoe Tonight and Knitting Factory to make their show poster! Band posters are the most fun and time-consuming things to do. They never pay what they should, but as a designer, I’m always happy to take on these projects.

After my workout, I spoke with the marketing / membership sales person who was open to a mutual exchange of design-work for gym membership. Now if only my mortgage company would take...
The spring cleaning photoshoot got cancelled, but I still had a photographer ready to go! Sarah’s got talent and the shoot went great. What happens next? This whole photoshoot is for a website I’m building for music producer, Pulser, for a music collaboration we’ve been working on. Having learned to properly develop a site using divs (say goodbye tables…) I’m...
