Broods at Fonda Theater
Last night I went to see Broods at Fonda Theater in Hollywood. The brother sister duo from New Zealand really brought down the house, even Taylor Swift was present and belting out every lyric from the balcony. If you're loving electropop with soulful lyrics and high energy I would definitely recommend this band. Now if only there were a westside of L.A. venue to see amazing shows like this at so I didn't have to drive an hour!
I've been doing Sofar Sounds posters for over a year now. I was very excited when this new project came up, to design a poster for Cold War Kids playing at Union Station, Los Angeles.
So Far Sounds L.A. had a show at MV Art Dept in my blossoming neighborhood of Mar Vista. I wanted to mimic the beautifully designed sign as you enter the store. Gorgeous geometric patterns of reclaimed wood, white paint, and steel. I am personally a big fan of MV Art Dept bringing murals and creative workshops to the neighborhood.
Kayves musical influences include Joy Division, Foals, Interpol, The Cure, and Tame Impala. The band is working on an EP to keep the momentum going after a promising start at Coachella.
Poster design for SoFar Sounds show in Culver City. Inspired by desert colors, and blended with random geometric shapes. Enjoy!
I designed this poster for a SoFar Sounds music show taking place in Santa Monica, CA. When I started the design, I wanted to do a play on the letters in SoFar Sounds to create the abbreviation "SAMO" within, short for Santa Monica.
Desert trip, nicknamed "Oldchella," is coming up soon! I've searched the web for these cool throw back tees with bands playing the epic festival this October in Indio, CA like this The Who 70s throwback tee from Junk Food Clothing. Represent your favorite legends!
If I could describe Burning Man in one word it'd be "surreal." In fact, the whole festival feels a bit like stepping into a Dali painting. I admit, I was skeptical even through my first day and half of being there. Now I'm convinced it's one of those experiences that you'll covet forever.
I keep a Pinterest board called "harmonious hues" to keep a log of interesting color combos I'm drawn to. This helps when I'm designing to have some ideas to grab from.
I designed this poster for a SoFar Sounds show taking place in Culver City. I used a vintage image of Culver City, added a color halftone effect and overlaid it onto a seafoam green color.
I designed this poster for a SoFar Sounds show taking place in Culver City. I used an image of a sunset that I took and overlaid it onto a red and purple gradient to give it a moody effect. I used the typeface DecoNeue Light and tweaked in in Illustrator to give it some more character.
