It was my first trip to Coachella this year, and all seemed to fall right into place. My friend Dee and I had a free place to stay, and access to Guest Passes to go all out VIP. The standouts for me were Nero and Stromae. Nero because vocals by Alana Watson were spot on, with added drama by an amazing stylist. Stromae because he's just an all around amazing performer, from stage presence to theatrics, a live band, and video.
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.

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 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.
